Police accompanied by 10 Hindu extremists on Aug. 28 arrested a Christian operator of a boys' hostel in Karnataka, India, after the extremists accused him and another Christian of offering food, shelter, education and future job prospects as an "allurement" to convert to Christianity, reports Charisma News Online.
Hanuma Naik is also pastor of Indian Gypsy Works Fellowship (IGWF). After his release on bail the next day, he dismissed the allegations as fabricated, saying that parents of the 42 students voluntarily sent their children, ages 6 to 19, to the hostel. The parents had prior information and knowledge that Christian teachings are part of the program at the church-run hostel, popularly known as a "Christian Ashram," he said.
