Nepal: Hindu extremists attack Christians, burn down homes and church

A church building and the homes of four Christian converts in a Nepal village were burned down, according to Barnabas Fund.

Hindu extremists are being blamed for the rash of violence in Nepal as homes are being burned down, but the government in Nepal is not acting.

The Christian Today details the incident and citizens were powerless to prevent the assault as these extremists “targeted the homes of Ganga Lama Tamang, Lama Bahadur Tamang, Lama Bokta and Bikram Lama.”

Reverend CB Gahatraj said: “The authorities are reluctant to meet our requests and are ignoring cases when the victims are Christian. Things like this should not happen in a secular nation.”

The majority of new Christians are Hindu converts, and a change in religion prompts ostracism and discrimination from their communities, sometimes even aggression.

The article notes that “physical attacks on Christians are generally an uncommon occurrence in Nepal, this violence follows the murder of a church leader last October. Debelal was killed by a Hindu man who tricked him into believing he wanted prayer before beating the Christian with an iron rod and slitting his throat.”

Popular support for Hindu nationalist political parties across the country is growing, which is prompting concerns for the future of Christianity and Christians in Nepal.
