It is actually an e-mail message I received, from the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) from USA, so I will share it with you (I copied/pasted):
The ACLJ has witnessed first-hand the increasing targeted persecution of Christians in India. And we're taking direct action to stop it.
Our client, Christian Pastor Bryan Nerren - an American citizen - was wrongfully arrested and detained in India for seven months simply because of his faith.
Our team fought tirelessly to secure his freedom. And only after concerted diplomatic effort was Pastor Nerren finally released and reunited with his family in America.
Once he was safely home, Pastor Nerren relayed an alarming message he'd heard from an Indian official: "We have been ordered by the Central Government to crush Christianity."
And we're seeing that ominous directive being played out with mounting fervor. India's Christians are abused, threatened, and even arrested for their beliefs. Their own government allegedly wants them "eliminated."
We just delivered a critical written submission to the U.N. Human Rights Council in defense of India's Christians. And TODAY, and over the next 3 days, we will be making 3 oral interventions urging the world's leaders to take immediate action to defend Christians from unconscionable harassment and abuse.
We must stop the incendiary persecution of India's Christians before it blazes out of control.

As you just read, it was stated (I copied/pasted again):... Pastor Nerren relayed an alarming message he'd heard from an Indian official: "We have been ordered by the Central Government to crush Christianity." and... Their own government allegedly wants them "eliminated."
Obviously, Christians in India are being persecuted.
However, I believe God will help them.
Thinking about that, made me think about Psalm 55:22, "Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.".
Amen! Cast thy burden upon the Lord, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
Please know that I will continue praying for them.
And I hope that you will also pray for all those Christians being persecuted.
Of course, if there is anything we can do to help... in many ways, including signing the petition, please do what you can.
For God loves everyone who belongs to Him.. and who does whatever they can to help.
If you do, I believe God will bless you.
Thank You, Lord!
Until next time...
