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.
