Riots in India won’t stop the worship of persecuted Christians

May 10, 2023 by Abigail Hart in Persecuted Christians in India

Just days before, on May 3, these brothers and sisters fled their village in Manipur after radical Hindus burned their church and homes, forcing them to flee.

For days, they hiked through treacherous wilderness, having no real destination—just a need to leave—and leave fast.

CNN announced more than 50 are dead and 23,000 displaced since the ethnic/religious cleansing riots began on May 3. The state government in Manipur has been cryptic about the current circumstances and many are hoping for the Indian government to intervene.

Global Christian Relief CEO Dr. David Curry asked for the worldwide church to stop and pray for our brothers and sisters in Manipur (see below):

After these heinous attacks, thousands of believers now have nowhere to turn. But Global Christian Relief is on the ground, working with our partners to strengthen and serve our vulnerable brothers & sisters in Christ.
