A Hindu nationalist party, the BJP, leads India’s current government. This party has voiced repeatedly that to be an Indian is to be a Hindu. Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh is a militant Hindu nationalist group that is connected with the BJP. This group has stated that they want to see all Christians and Muslims removed from India by the end of 2021. While we recognize the impossibility of this goal, we also recognize the intent behind such a statement. We ask you to pray for the members of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh militant group, and members of the BJP political party, that they might have “Saul to Paul” encounters with Jesus Christ (The Bible, Acts 9:1-5).
