8 Christians arrested & released from prison

Posted by on Jun 20, 2016

  Nepal has been debating its anti-conversion bill. The law as written stipulates, “Preaching, testifying, and counselling people for religious matter and leading them to new religion other than their forefathers’ traditions is considered as crime. The punishment is 5 years imprisonment as well as Nrs 50000/ fine for those who break the Law.” Although the law has not officially been passed, Christians are already feeling the impact. On June 9th, 2016 seven teachers, (six brothers and 1 sister) were taken into custody and jailed for distributing religious materials while teaching children about earthquake related awareness programs. On June 13th their pastor Shakti Pakhrin was also taken into custody and jailed. Excerpts taken from harvestbridge.org/blog/arrests-nepal/ June 9th 2016.

BABU VARGHESE

Beginning with only 2 children, Babu and his wife, Sabitri, established the Blessed Children’s Home (BCH) in the southern city of Birganj in 1995. In just over a decade, this number has grown to over 80 children, who are daily provided with food, clothing, shelter and a K-12 education; otherwise unattainable without the affluence of the upper class. Upon meeting Babu and Sabitri, one is immediately struck by their gentle humility and genuine compassion. The warmth and hospitality they offer at BCH is a safe haven from the restless, overpopulated streets, infamous for child trafficking across the open border into neighboring India. One of the devastating effects of child trafficking into India is the forced return of these children back to Nepal once they have subsequently contracted the sexually transmitted disease through forced prostitution, and upon return, abandoned by their own families. Thus arose the need for these children to be loved and protected when no one else would. Babu and Sabitri have recently opened such a facility in the city of Hetauda with their first 11...
