Pastor dragged, beaten by 150-strong mob while praying for sick
In one of the eight attacks on Christians since the COVID-19 lockdown was partially lifted in India two weeks ago, a mob of about 150 people in the southern state of Telangana dragged a pastor into the street and beat him while he was praying for a sick person.
â€śThey kicked me like they would kick a football,â€ť Pastor Suresh Rao, a church planter, told the U.S.-based Christian persecution watchdog International Christian Concern about the attack on him in Kolonguda village last Sunday.
â€śThey dragged me into the street and pushed me to the ground,â€ť Rao added. â€śThere, they started to trample on me. They tore my clothes, kicked me all over my body, and punched my left eye. I have sustained a serious eye injury as a result of a blood clot.â€ť...

It didnâ€™t take long after the election for President Trump to be seen in public with international business partners. According to a November 19 article in The New York Times, Trump took a break from his transition schedule to meet with three Indian real-estate executives who are currently building a Trump-branded apartment complex in Mumbai. According to both Trump and the Indian businessmen, the meeting was essentially congratulatory in nature; a picture posted by one of the executives on Twitter shows the four men smiling broadly and giving a thumbs-up to the camera. However, that the meeting happened in the first place suggests that Trump does not currently have any qualms about forestalling official state business for personal business.
On top of that, the meeting raises questions in the blind-trust realm as well. The president himself was not the only member of his family there; two Facebook photos show that Ivanka and Eric Trump both attended the meeting...
Has Trump used his business connections to benefit Christians in India?
""The attackers accused Rao of illegally converting Hindus to Christianity. â€śThey said that India is a Hindu nation, and there is no place for Christians,â€ť Rao explained. â€śI am prepared for this kind of eventuality. I know the cost of serving Jesus in these remote villages, and I will continue to serve the people of this region.â€ť"
Right question. Right answer.
May the Lord continue with His work in India.
Sadly Satan will continue with all his heresies.
