The persecution of Christians in India is on the rise with a report of one believer being murdered for his faith by Hindu radicals in his own village.
According to Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW), Kande Mudu, 27, was attacked and murdered by a group of armed men in the Khunti district of India's Jharkhand state on June 7. He had converted to Christianity four years ago.
Mudu's family were the only Christians living in their village. They had faced threats to their lives and had survived one violent attack on their home two years ago.
