India has become a dangerous place to be a Christian in, especially if you are a convert from Hindu paganism. Many converts and missionaries are brutally attacked and killed each year. In a recent incident, a Christian man giving Bibles away was abused so badly by a group of Hindu terrorists that he suffered a brain hemorrhage:
A doctor who treated a Christian who suffered a brain hemorrhage here after Hindu extremists badgered him and took him to a police station on Saturday (Jan. 21) told Morning Star News that hypertension may have caused the bleeding.
K.A. Swamy, 47, fell into a coma hours after the Hindu extremists shouted and threatened him with highly offensive language for distributing Bibles and took him to police, where he spent the day in custody. He remained in a coma at this writing.
Dr. Shaik Sardar of the Critical Care Department at Kamineni Hospitals said there was no evidence of external injury to Swamy, a professor who was distributing Bibles on Tank Bund Road in Hyderabad, capital of Telangana state.
“Most likely, it looks like a case of hypertension, because the bleeding is localized within the vessel distribution,” Sardar said. “If it is some assault, the bleed will be diffused, you will have external injuries, but there are no such external injuries, and so the cause could be hypertension leading to that bleed.”
Police told Swamy that members of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (VHP), an umbrella group for Hindu extremist organizations, had brought him to the police station, Swamy’s wife told Morning Star News.
“Swamy explained to them that it, the Bible, is for free and that he is not forcing anyone,” his wife, Kusuma
Sujatha, told Morning Star News. “They had shown Swamy so many photos of him in different shirt colors that they must have been following and observing his movement.”
Intercepting him Saturday morning, the extremists threatened him by showing him photos they had taken of him, according to a video of the bullying that Morning Star News has translated.
“We have photographs of you distributing Bibles in different locations,” one of three Hindu extremists who spoke with him said. “You were doing this on Necklace Road also. This fellow is doing it for a long time.”
After shouting at Swamy for “doing religious promotion” and “catching hold of people who are coming for morning walk here,” they ridiculed him by forcing him to put a Bible on his head, the video shows.
“Keep it on the head. Keep it on the head,” another of the Hindu extremists said. “You distributed. How dare you do it.”
A fourth Hindu extremist recording the video then told him that even if he denied it, “we’ve got cameras,” and one of the other members reprimanded him: “Not just here, you must not promote Christianity anywhere in India.”
Before they forced him into their vehicle, the Hindu extremist said again, “You must not do this anywhere in this country. You must not do this . . . Pick up your bags. You carry your own sins – your bag. All your family and children will go in fire. I tell you, 100 percent it’s going to happen.” (source)
