... So says a wonderful article on the Christian Post website with the title of Disturbing Stories Expose Dark Realities of Persecution.
Howell went beyond informing the evangelical leaders in the audience about the recent anti-Christian rampage in India to explain the reason behind Hindus’ hatred of Christians.
Hindu nationalist political parties believe and promote an ideology that promotes Hindu nation, Hindu culture, and Hindu people – “nationalism linked to Hindu religion,” said Howell.
“If you are not a Hindu, by definition, you are an anti-national,” he states. “So the hatred of Christian is hatred of Christian identity. They don’t like us not because of what we do – they definitely hate what we do – but also who we are.”
“They want to turn India into a Hindu nation, that is why Christians are hated,” the evangelical leader said.
But more importantly, Christians are hated because they empower the poor, which is the “root cause of any hatred that they incur,” he said.
Empowering the poor Dalit disturbs the caste system, which defines the group formerly known as untouchables as impure.
So there you go. Pray.
