40 Christian leaders arrested, released in Nepal
Catholic World News - 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.
