Religious fundamentalists beat Pastor & vandalize his home, Uttar Pradesh
Pastor Maulana Ayub is affiliated to Talim Ministries as Network Leader. He resides with his family in Laharpur, a town and a municipal board in Sitapur district in the Indian state of Uttar Pradesh.
On 09th May, as was the usual practice, his family were gathered together for family prayers and reading of the Word. As there was a power-cut, the family stepped out into the courtyard to continue their prayers. Pastor Ayub was reading the Word.
Suddenly, without any provocation, a few people who saw them praying, gathered a mob of 30-40 religious fundamentalists and stormed into this private home and attacked the family. Pastor Ayub who was brutally beaten, bore the brunt of the hate crime and was hospitalized with critical injuries. The radicals also burnt his beard, used abusive language and roughed up his wife and children.
Their home was vandalized and all food provisions were destroyed. Cash of around Rs. 5000/- which Pastor had with him. was stolen by these miscreants. The family were chased out of their home and had to flee for their lives. They took refuge in one of their relative’s home around 20 kms away from their home.
Speaking to Persecution Relief, Rev. Sushil requested for prayer support for Pastor Ayub and his family, who are fearful of further attacks.
