India: Hindu Radicals Kill Christian Teenager


On June 4, Hindu fanatics in Odisha state burst into the home of 16-year-old Samaru Madkami and kidnapped him. They then took Samaru and other Christian villagers they had kidnapped to a wooded area. Although the other Christians managed to escape, the Hindus overpowered and killed Samaru, burying him nearby. Police arrested the killers the following day. Samaru and his family came to faith in Christ a few years ago, along with two other families. A visiting pastor had led worship for them on Sundays, but he eventually stopped visiting the village after local Hindus threatened him. After that, Samaru led worship for the group.

Pray for Samaru’s father and sisters.
