Hatred of Christians is alive and well in India

“Hindu Extremists in India Target Christian State Official

Hindu extremists in the southern state of Andhra Pradesh have brought the incidence of Christian persecution to an unprecedented high, including a slander campaign against the state’s chief minister, Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, a Christian. Sam Paul, public affairs secretary of the All India Christian Council, said at least one anti-Christian incident occurs per day. Paul believes that the rising number of attacks on Christians is linked to a campaign against Chief Minister Reddy by Hindu extremist groups. ‘Hindu extremists are accusing the chief minister and the state government ruled by the Congress Party of having a “Christian” agenda,’ Paul told Compass Direct News. They are trying to ensure that ‘the chief minister is branded as a supporter of Christian missionaries trying to convert Hindus by the use of force and allurement.'” Reported by Crosswalk.com

Jesus said, “Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.  Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.” (Matthew 5:11-12)

So from God’s perspective, Mr. Reddy has much to rejoice about since it is an honor to be persecuted for Christ’s sake and his reward in heaven is great (Hallelujah!) even if he may not feel like it at the moment.
