On September 5, the governor of India’s Jharkhand State approved the Jharkhand Freedom of Religion Bill 2017, despite widespread opposition.  This bill, which is essentially an anti-conversion law, prevents anyone from attempting to convert someone’s religion, whether directly or indirectly.  However, the vague terms laid out in this bill leave a wide margin for interpretation and manipulation.  Similar laws in other Indian states are often used by Hindu radicals to falsely accuse Christian pastors of forced conversions.

Full Story

  • Pray that discrimination against Christians would decrease, despite the passage of this bill.
  • Pray for justice for Christians who have already been falsely accused.
  • Pray that this bill would be revoked or revised to better protect religious minorities.
