Christian Pastor Murdered Right In Front Of His Church

By Theodore Shoebat

A Christian pastor in India was murdered right in front of his own church, according to one report:

Pastor Sultan Masih was killed at the Temple of God Church in Ludhiana, a city in the state of Punjab, on Saturday (July 15), Christian Today reported.

Two boys were nearby at the time and saw the incident. They informed the family of the pastor, however by the time relatives arrived at the hospital he was declared dead.

CCTV captured the attack, however the perpetrators are not identifiable due to the poor quality of the lighting.

A protest was held on Sunday morning (July 16) and roads were blocked for more than five hours as they called for justice to be done.​

The British Asian Christian Association reports that local people believe it was a hate crime because the persecution of Christians in India has been increasing.

The association claims Hindu nationalists are leading the attacks as concern has grown since Narendra Modi was elected as president in 2014.

Wilson Chowdhry, chairman of the British Asian Christian Association, has said: “This unprovoked attack on a Christian Pastor before many members of his congregation is an attack on religious freedom.

“It resonates with the hatred Christians face on a daily basis in a nation that is becoming increasingly polarised under Modi’s government.

“Increasing attacks on Christians in India are a cause for international concern, yet since ending the 10-year diplomatic boycott of Narendra Mohdi in 2012, Britain has forged strong diplomatic ties with him fermenting an unwillingness to condemn the known human rights atrocities under his regime.”

    Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints

    Another atrocity – I do believe that I read a quote from Archbishop Chaput’s book that said Christians would soon be living as aliens and exiles in this world. I think he nailed it.

    • Kamau41

      He’s spot on. I totally agree with him.

    • dovari

      We Christians in India are already living as aliens in our own country for more than 6 decades now after independence.

      • Question- do you think christians would have been better had the British not given up India?

        • Joan Simpson

          It’s my understanding we lost the empire because we treated Israel so badly from the Balfour Declaration on. God takes care of the Jewish people.

        • dovari

          My understanding is that British political class were serving their own interests. It was missionaries of both protestant and catholic churches that brought gospel to India. They did a whole lot to the people here. Had not British given up India, the gospel fruits would have increased and there would have been more Christians.

          • That is what I have surmised and this confirms it. Thanks.

      • Julie LaBrecque

        Good to hear from you and pray for your protection.

  • That state, Punjab, keeps coming up over and over. How much has the election of Modi emboldened the Hindu nationalists?

  • Indian Christian Crusader

    Well, once a world war erupts, and other nations (Russia/US) are busy fighting each other, most Hindus will set out to wipe out Christians and Muslims from India.

    Many Hindus bark, “oh you survived in India, because we Hindus are tolerant and nice” = No, it is because God restrained your evil and kept you check. In the end times, God will allow a period of persecution, and your true colors will be seen. If you have killed low castes/dalits, your own fellow Hindus, you are prepared to kill Christians and Muslims.

    Of course, not all Hindus are bad, there are definitely some nice ones who are secular and trying to defend Christians, but regretful to say, that the massive brainwashing done via the internet to radicalize Hindus, by Modi Supporters, Subramaniam Swamy (Harvard educated), Rajiv Malhotra (U.S Citizen) and other American based Hindus, has already produced millions of brainwashed extremist haters. More is yet to come.

    Any Indian Christian that says to you, there is no persecution in India, is a LIAR. Reject him. Jesus Himself said, ALL NATIONS SHALL HATE YOU, that includes India/Hindus. So, believe what Jesus said if you don’t even believe the news. Any TRUE INDIAN CHRISTIAN who walks in Christ, WILL BE PERSECUTED. Jesus said, His servants will be persecuted. Only fake worldly Indian Christians don’t get persecuted and they will keep denying it.

    The Pagans have their days numbered.

  • filomena seiffert

    If was in front of the congregation why the people did not react ? why they can not even find out who did?

  • Kamau41

    Reading such stories like these continues to be very common now. All signs that the world indeed is becoming much more hostile toward Christians.

  • filomena seiffert

    If they continue not to defend the pastors and themselves is going just to increase the number of dead.

    • Jami

      Totally agree with you. India is mostly a Hindu country, even the Police men are all Hindus, so except God there is no one else to defend these people. The Pastor may have even not been able to afford police protection.corruption rate is high among the Hindus

        I am glad the report gave this pastor credit for being a Christian, seeing he was a protestant. When they are alive many here call them heretics. Once they are martyred, they suddenly become Christians. People, if you believe every protestant is a heretic, please refrain from blessing them after they gave it all up for Jesus. Just sayin’.

        • Julie LaBrecque

          …..In their defense, the early Church Fathers did call them heretics – St. Ignatius I believe the earliest on record to do so.

        • Jami

          Dear Grandmere ,
          I didn’t quite get these lines.

          “if you believe every protestant is a heretic, please refrain from blessing them after they gave it all up for Jesus””

          • Grandmere

            I wasn’t referring to you, but to people like Deborah (above). To her, this man is just another dead heretic. At least she’s honest.

          • Jami

            Oh my goodness 🙂
            Love You Grandmere

          • Julie LaBrecque

            I shouldn’t have jumped in – sorry for that – please forgive – did not even know which poster you referred to.

          • Grandmere

            Love you, Sis. I know you don’t think I’m a heretic. I am happy that God brought you into my life.

    Hindus are not known for their violence? What about all the low castes killed and women b urnt, that Britishers had to pass law to stop it? Islam is not doing it. There are no Muslims in that area or low population. Secondly he was ministering to Hindus, not Muslims. Lot of this violence is done by Hindus. My own father was a convert from Hinduism and was brutalized. I know Hindus well. Who killed St Thomas? Hindus did. Everyone is capable of violence if they are not in Christ.

  • Indian Christian Crusader

    It is happening throughout.

  • Indian Christian Crusader

    There is good and bad news everywhere, but that does not discount the seriousness and danger of Hindu nationalism.
