  Intimidation, Threats and Harassment


On Jan. 19 in Modi, Thana Antagar, Kanker, alleged Hindu extremists stopped a Christian woman from joining her new job because of her faith in Christ.

The Madhya Pradesh government appointed Shrimati Sambhai of Believers’ Church as Anganwadi teacher, but the village head, Dhanuram Behari, and community leader Hiralal Behari persuaded the state to revoke her appointment because of her Christian faith.

She submitted a letter of complaint to the Sarpanch, Amodi on Feb. 18, but to no avail. Area Christian leaders were intervening, but at press time the Christian was still not allowed to take her post.
