40 Christian leaders arrested, released in Nepal

June 24, 2014

More than 40 Protestant leaders in Nepal were recently arrested on charges of forcibly converting Hindus.

“A Hindu mob gathered outside the prison, threatening an uprising if the Christians were released. Most of the detainees were released, however, a few hours after the arrest,” the Fides news agency reported.

The Himalayan nation was officially a Hindu state until 2006.
