Aarav came to faith in Christ after experiencing healing from an illness when a local minister prayed for him.
When Aarav invited the minister and his family to his home, about 50 members of a militant Hindu group gathered there and began shouting and banging on the doors. The pastor called the police, who came and told the mob that nothing improper was happening in the house. The Hindus were not satisfied, and police finally took Aarav and the pastor to the police station for questioning.
The situation was apparently resolved, until local media reported false allegations of Christians being paid to convert. As a result, Aarav and his family have been evicted from their home, lenders are demanding immediate repayment of loans and Aarav’s long-time client has said he will no longer purchase milk from him. “The family is very sad and worried,” a VOM partner said. “We need to stand urgently in prayers with them.”
