Christian Boy's Tortured Death in India 'Unthinkable'

Ad Feedback

A seven-year-old boy was tortured and murdered for his Christian faith in India.

Gospel for Asia reports child's body was pulled from a pond last week with signs of a brutal beating. Autopsy reports indicate the final cause of death was drowning.

His parents had last seen their son, Amnol, alive before he left for Sunday school Nov. 17.

K.P. Yohannan, founder and international director of Gospel for Asia, called the child's death "unthinkable" and the brutal torture "inhumane."

"The unprecedented torture and death of this innocent child saddens our hearts incredibly," Yohannan said. "Persecution of Christians is a weekly occurrence, but this intensity of brutality against a child is unthinkable. In this horrible tragedy, we find strength and hope in Jesus."

Yohannan said the persecution of Christians in his country has increased 400 percent in the past few years.
