Imagine for a moment that your child was killed by a mob…but police blamed you for his death?
This is what one Indian pastor is presently dealing with. He is accused of using "sorcery" to cause of the death of 16 villagers, which police say led to his son’s death at the hands of a vengeful village mob.
Blaming Indian Christians for their own persecution is not a new strategy for the police. Twelve years ago, Swami Laxmanananda (a Hindu priest) was murdered by a radical Communist group, but Hindus in the Odisha state chose to blame Christians.
