Persecution of christians in India
The Christians in many states of India are under severe persecution. The Pastors are being beaten, sent out of the villages and the Christian literature was burnt. It became a continuous program for the anti Christian elements.

The present scenario is the valid evidence:

The brand new Bibles of TWO lorries were sent to the Paper Mill in the Sarasanaapalli village of Srikakulam District of Andhra Pradesh Sate on 4 th May 2010 to use them as raw material for the manufacturing of paper. The name of the paper factory is : K.V.R.Paper Inductry. Many of the Christians hold dharna and demanded for the action against the Factory and the suppliers. Again day before yesterday an other lorry of Bibles are being sent to the same factory from Bhimavaram town of West Godavary District of Andhra Pradesh State of South India. The local Christians were surprised like anything and caught that lorry and called for the police. The Police interfered and ceased the lorry. Yesterday, many of the Christians in different places hold rallies and met the concerned Government officials and demanded for a probe into the issue and demanding for the action against the culprits.

The Diocese of Eluru and the Krishna Godavary Diocese of the India Christian Mission Church and the Society for Peace and Justice have demanded for the probe and action against the culprits and submitted Memorandums to the Governor of the State and the Chief Minister including the West Godavary District Magistrate.

I am herewith attaching the news paper clippings for your kind information.

I humbly request you to kindly PRAY for us. We are just 65 Kms.away from Bhimavaram from where the Bibles are being moved to the Paper Factory.
