NEPAL: Elder Arrested After Hindu Mob Disruption

During a worship service on 9 September 2023, members of Hindu radical groups and Hindu media outlets aggressively disrupted the service and blamed elder Omkar Lohoni for promoting Christianity in the area. Police arrested Omkar and held him in custody for six hours. Brother Omkar leads three fellowships with about 250 Believers, and he thinks Hindu radicals targeted him because he is a well-recognized person among the Christians in this area. Front-Line Workers report that Hindu radicals are strategically undermining Christianity in the province where Omkar works, closely observing pastors’ activities and their connections so they can bring additional charges against Christians. Their intimidation campaigns often include posting photos identifying Christians and making claims about them on social media to encourage the Hindu community to oppose Christianity.
