Matthew 5:43-45 - Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

When Babari Masjid was demolished several innocent Muslims were attacked, houses were destroyed, looted and burnt and women were raped. While questioning the injustice done to my Muslim brothers and sister, I responded with a statement at that time in many public places that `even if a thousand mosques are demolished, not even a fistful sand from a temple should be lifted, my children!' But they put me behind bars with fabricated cases in jail in Coimbatore without even a trial for nine and a half years. When the judge finally concluded that I was innocent and I was released, they were not satisfied. More fabricated charges came against me and I have been spending my time in Parappana Agrahara Jail in Bangalore for the last four years and I had to pursue legal action even for my basic health care as a citizen of this country. On the 17th of August, I will be completing four years as an under trial prisoner. I am fully aware that all those love me and respect me will remember this date.
I am only one among those who are suffering in Indian jails as an under trial with fabricated cases. There are thousands of others who can not even express their voices. In Kandhamal over 300 churches and worship places were attacked, over 6,000 houses were destroyed, burnt and looted, over 56,000 people were displaced, over 100 people were killed and women were raped. All the victims belong to the Adivasi Christians and Dalit Christians. Those who conducted the crimes are not punished and several innocent people are being punished. Even the draconian law named Unlawful Activities Prevention Act (UAPA) which is used against me is being used against many innocent people who are involved with the human rights issues of Kandhamal. Sitting here in Bangalore, I can hear the sigh of my Adivasi Christian and Dalit Christian brothers from Kandhamal appealing for justice for the victims and survivors. On August 25, 2014, this sigh will be heard more widely all over the country with many groups giving a call for the observation of Kandhamal Day. I appeal to all my supporters, friends and brothers listen to the sigh from Kandhamal and observe the Kandhamal Day on August 25th. Together, let us pray to build a nation without communal hatred, a nation based on justice, peace and harmony.

Please take a moment to forward this email to your friends and family and let them know of the horrors fellow Christians are facing abroad.
Christians in Iraq and Syria are facing more and more threats every day. The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has driven thousands from their homes, murdered hundreds who refused to convert or leave their homes, and sold hundreds more into slavery.
And now ISIS is posting photos from members in the United States threatening our very safety.
The Obama Administration ignored the cries of Christians in the Middle East. Now they are acting to protect thousands who face slaughter and genocide at the hands of Islamic extremists, but this comes too late for Christians who were driven from their homes in Syria and Iraq and faced robbery, beatings, and execution. Even former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been critical of Obama's handling of the situation, calling the President's inaction in Syria a failure that "left a big vacuum, which the jihadists have now filled."
Obama's months of inaction on behalf of Christians was called out last month by Congressman Frank Wolf :But it took nearly two more weeks before Obama acted -- and by then it was too late.
"I believe what is happening to the Christian community in Iraq is genocide," he said in a speech to the House of Representatives. "I also believe it is a crime against humanity. Where is the West? Where is the Obama Administration? Where is the Congress? The silence is deafening."
After 2,000 years there are no Christians left in Mosul. And now ISIS has captured Qaraqosh, Iraq's largest Christian city, forcing more than 200,000 people to flee their homes - 50,000 of them Christians - and slaughtering many who stayed behind, including the 5-year-old son of a founding member of St. George's Anglican Church in Baghdad - an evangelical Christian church.
The means by which ISIS is going about achieving their goal of a Christian-free Islamic state is nothing short of genocide. More must be done to protect these innocent people from these brutal assaults by ISIS and Shariah Law - and before this threat truly manifests itself on our shores.
Christian America must wake up. Please forward this email to your friends and family to remind them of the suffering of Christians in the Middle East.
