(Worthy News) - After concluding that their Hindu deities were angry, villagers in Chhattisgarh state drove some newly converted Christians from their homes and then set the buildings afire.

"For a long time, the Hindu villagers had harbored hatred against the Christians and finally summoned them to a public meeting, told them to renounce Christ, beat them up severely and burned up their houses," Pastor Able Varghese told Morning Star News.

Christians in Katholi village, Kanker District were beaten and chased from their homes by their Hindu neighbors after they decided that all village Christians should "reconvert" back to Hinduism.

After the beatings, four Christian families fled the village for refuge in the homes of Christians in Kaviti.
