Retired Christain couple being harassed for their faith! Uttar Pradesh

Astonishing are the ways of the fanatics to Persecute their Christian brothers. It only takes them to know somebody is Christian, to doom him of evil. For them this title is enough reason by any means to report the Christian to the police, no matter how pacific and how kind and helpful the Christian is and no matter how helpful he is to those who accuse him. Listen to this wonderous but real story!

Sanjay Macgee a soldier fighting for the Persecuted guided Nirmal E. Browne and his wife, an old retired couple, to Persecution Relief, regarding the persecution they are facing from the neighborhood where they are living in an apartment in the city of Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh. As it is now custom in India, they cannot live in peace because of their faith in Jesus Christ. Nirmal is one of the flat owners among the 92 flats of the apartment. They are both retired government employees.

Nevertheless, over the past few weeks, Nirmal has been facing discrimination by few fanatics in the apartment complex itself as they are accusing him automatically of converting people:
“They used the Supervisor of the society against me by pushing him to make false complaints of conversion against me. In an application given to the police station on 11/10/20 at SGPGI Police Station, he accused us of having connection with foreign agencies and that we offered him money to convert to Christianity. And he also alleged that we forced him not to go to temple. He even openly lied that I threatened him that if He doesn’t convert to Christianity, I will kill him and his family! He also added that whenever he goes to the temple, I stop him forcefully. He also accused that I have already converted many and one day I will convert the entire colony people.

A policeman came to my residence with the Complaint and that’s the time I came to know about the complaint filed against me. The irony is from the past one year I have not even spoken to him” – said Nirmal to Persecution Relief.

Now marvel with us: How bluntly false invented stories these fanatics are able to easily make up!! Those are a perfect clear example of “false witnesses” that the Lord has forbidden to any believer through Moses, since even the coming of Christ. Because they are basics! Indeed, the Lord has told them: “You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks out of his own character, for he is a liar and the father of lies” – John 8:44.
Also the Bible clearly states how hateful to God are lying and baring false witness : “There are six things that the Lord hates, seven that are an abomination to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that make haste to run to evil, a false witness who breathes out lies, and one who sows discord among brothers” – Proverbs 6:16-19 And all these hateful deeds combined are being practiced by these fanatics brainwashed by the lies and manipulations of their misguiding deceiving gurus.

And how easily these sons of darkness can forget the hands that are lodging him, how ungrateful they are, lodging in his flat while at the same time stabbing him in the back. Truly, common sense is no more common at all!

False accusations have become a trend in the country, fanatics have taken it as a hobby to falsely instigate people to file fake complaints against Christians in India. They even now follow courses on “how to accuse a Christian”.

Surely 63-year-old Nirmal was disappointed and shocked by the whole incident, especially that his accusers and the ones lodging in his flat in the same apartment as himself.

“We have never discriminated anybody, nor have we ever forced anybody to become a Christian. We are falsely targeted by some fanatics whose only intention is to divide India in the basis of Religion, Color and Faith” added Nirmal. Yes, this is the life story of every devout Christian in India. This is the reality and the daily struggle that any Christian of India would have to suffer as a price for following the savior.

Uttar Pradesh! the ‘Holy State’ that is ruled and led by a monk! The state that is supposed to be the most peaceful state in the country. The one expected to have set a high standard for the rest of the provinces in the country!

However, it is the one experiencing predominant hostilities!! Not only Christians are inflicted, but people of all faiths are experiencing these hostilities. 27 hate crimes were recorded in Uttar Pradesh in the 3rd quarter of 2020, bringing its year to date count to a mind-blowing 90 cases! These numbers make it the Most Dangerous State in India For Christians to live in and since 2017, no other state has taken this title. Since January 2016 to September 2020, Persecution Relief has recorded 2224 cases of Christian Persecution in India. In 2019 alone, we recorded the maximum number of 527 cases compared to 447 cases in 2018, 440 in 2017, and 330 in 2016. From January 2016 to June 2020, Persecution Relief alone has recorded 2067 cases of Hate crimes against Christians in India. The US Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF) has downgraded India to the lowest ranking, ‘Countries of Particular Concern’(CPC) In its 2020 report. The US State Department ranked India’s persecution severity at “Tier 2” along with Iraq and Afghanistan. Over the past seven years, India has risen from No. 31 to No. 10 on Open Doors’ World Watch List, ranking just behind Iran in persecution severity.

Pray that the fanatics be convicted by the evilness of false witnessing.
After all “A false witness will not go unpunished, and he who breathes out lies will not escape” – Proverbs 19:5.
“But as for the cowardly, the faithless, the detestable, as for murderers, the sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars, their portion will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death.” – Revelations 21:8.
“For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”” – Galations 5:14.

Pray that gratitude quality of the spirit of God enters their heart because it is only by prayer and petition in every situation, with thanksgiving, that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard their hearts and their minds in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:6-7).

Pray that Police be endorsed with the gift of discernment between lies and truth and that they choose to serve the justice and not their own fanatic desires, for God has commanded: ““You shall not spread a false report. You shall not join hands with a wicked man to be a malicious witness. You shall not fall in with the many to do evil, nor shall you bear witness in a lawsuit, siding with the many, so as to pervert justice, nor shall you be partial to a poor man in his lawsuit” – Exodus 23:1-3.

Pray for the government to arrest and control the fanatic gurus spreading hate with hate and manipulations that are transforming now most of the hindu population into fanatics and guiding them to darkness to serve their agenda under the lie of protecting their religion.

May the Spirit of God guide you and bless you,
