On March 8, Pastor Ravi Chandran was brutally attacked by Hindu extremists in Mysore, Karnataka State, according to The Voice of the Martyrs contacts.

Pastor Ravi was attacked by more than 10 extremists, who forcibly entered a believer’s home where the pastor was holding a prayer meeting. “The extremists entered the house and began abusing the pastor and the believers gathered there,” VOM contacts said. “They hit the pastor with glass bottles, as well as kicking and punching him mercilessly, after which they disappeared from the venue.” Pastor Ravi suffered severe injuries to his leg and head.
The Voice of the Martyrs encourages you to pray for Pastor Ravi, his church and all believers in India. VOM assists believers in India and Christian workers like Pastor Ravi with Christian literature and Bibles. VOM has also provided motorcycles and bicycles to help Christian workers reach more people with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
