Six Christian families were forced to flee their village in India’s Chhattisgarh state after their Hindu neighbours allegedly threatened to kill them if they did not renounce their Christian faith.
Chhattisgarh has been a hotbed of persecution in India since over 50 villages in the state passed ordinances making Christianity illegal. Since then, Christians in Chhattisgarh have faced some of the worst persecution India has to offer.
Now, these six Christian families are homeless because of their commitment to their Christian faith, something that India’s constitution is supposed to protect.
