India’s Bilaspur High Court, located in Chhattisgarh state, on Nov.8 ordered the district administration of Kondagaon to facilitate the safe return of Christians displaced from three villages.
International Christian Concern (ICC) https://www.persecution.org reports his order came after 12 Christians filed a Public Interest Litigation with the court pleading for security to provide to displaced Christians.
ICC said that in late September, Christians from Kakadabeda, Telliabeda, and Singanpur were called to a village meeting and told to recant their Christian faith. When the Christians refused, they were attacked radical Hindu nationalists and their homes were destroyed. Since the attack, these Christians have remained displaced.
“We ran for our lives,” Vijay Sori, a survivor of the September attack, told International Christian Concern (ICC). “The death threat they hurled against us were very frightening. There was no other way than to flee from the village.”
“Our lives are in danger as the villagers have vowed to kill us if we return,” Sori continued. “Our lives are being badly affected with the dangerous atmosphere created by the villagers.”
