Early on Easter Sunday morning, 5 April, Pastor Christopher Meesaul and his church members in Makthal Mandal, Telangana state, India, held a sunrise service. Afterwards they returned to their church building and found that the saffron flags of Hindu extremists had been hung there. The congregation removed the flags and continued with their Easter worship. Meanwhile Hindu extremist gathered outside the church and hoisted another saffron flag. Than they dragged the pastor out of the church to Hindu temple from where he was later rescued by police. Pray that Indian Christians will not become fearful or cease meeting together for worship, as they face ongoing hostility and low-level violence.
