Christians arrested for praying in their home.
HYDERABAD, India (Morning Star News) – About an hour before midnight on July 31, three policemen and a Hindu neighbor barged into a Christian woman’s house in northern India and ordered her and her husband to either give them money or go to jail.
The couple was immersed in prayer with their children and two other Christians in their home in Uttar Pradesh state’s Sarai Gunja village, in Jaunpur District. They worshipped in their house every night, and they had been fasting for three days, said the Christian woman, Anita Rajak.
The officers told them they couldn’t pray in their house and had come to arrest them, Rajak told Morning Star News.
“We are praying in our own house,” she told them. “Why would there be an arrest for praying inside one’s own house?”Read more here.
