Christians in Kano, who live under shar'ia (Islamic Law) are afraid to send their children to school because they could be forced to convert to Islam, according to Compass Direct. In Niger State, a formerly-Muslim cattleman who came to Christ was arrested and beaten by police for his conversion (here).


A revival in Rajasthan state in India was forced to end early when Hindu extremists attacked more than 50 Christians attending. An official of the group which organized the revival stated that members of the Hindu extremist group Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) were stopping people heading in the direction of the meetings. If they found Bibles in luggage, the people carrying them were beaten and forced to return to their homes. Police were present but inactive. Read more here.


A Lutheran church was burned to the ground in Khartoum. Despite complaints from the leaders of the church to police, no investigation has occurred and the neighbors refuse to discuss the matter with any members of the church. Compass Direct has the story here.
