Indian Christian man beheaded after refusing to become Hindu
Catholic World News - June 03, 2013
In India, a Christian man has been beheaded after he refused to become a Hindu.
Tapas Bin, 35-year-old resident of a remote tribal region of West Tripura, had been under heavy pressure from his father-in-law to abandon Christianity. Police say that the father-in-law conspired with a local Hindu religious leader to arrange Bin’s killing.
The father-in-law has disappeared, and his daughter—the wife of the murder victim—fears that he might seek to kill her and her son as well.
