Hindu nationalists increasingly target Christian women and girls in India.

In January, 40 Christians were forcibly re-converted into Hinduism in Madhya Pradesh. According to The Voice of the Martyrs Canada ministry partners, an anti-conversion bill recently became law in Jharkhand in a tribal Christian belt location.

Without support and guidance, many new Christian women are now going back to their original religion. In partnership with VOM Canada, Kiara* leads a group helping these persecuted believers. Listen to the full conversation here.

“Women are being persecuted for their faith in Jesus. There is a very structured way of cornering them and persecuting them,” Kiara says.

Radicals recently pressured one woman to deny the Lord, and she refused.

“She did not denounce her faith, and what was the next step? Her daughter was sold and trafficked. This was the punishment given to the Christian woman because of her faith,” Kiara says.
