On 25th February 2018, Christians were beaten up and forced to accept the Hindu religion if not Christians are not allowed to walk freely in Adaki, Khunti, Jharkhand.

Around 158 people came on motorbikes and by foot and started to slogan against the Christians.They entered the church during the worship and they started to beat and threatening Christians telling how many of you are here.

They beat them up and took one of the Christians to the another Christian house. After reaching the house, when they didn’t find the concerned person so they entered the prayer hall of his house and broke the box and took the membership register and in the Prayer Hall, they broke the deity, chair, EVD and tore opened the donation pouch as well as the school books and notebooks of his children.

When his wife returned they asked her the whereabouts of her husband and threatened her. After that they pressured one of the Christians violently to leave the Christian faith and adopt the Hindu faith. They brought Christians to the Baandhu village and Village council was called upon. There, in the village council, the village head along with other people. There too they were forced to leave Christianity and to accept Hindu religion. Even then Christians were not ready to do it. Then they started to threaten them by saying that they will not let any of them walk on this land, will not let any of theirs dead bodies to be buried and will not even let them drink water from the wells of our village.

Hindutva extremists have decided that on March 14, 2018, there will be arrangements for Christians to forcibly leave the Christianity and then forcibly adopted to Hinduism.
