Be Aware: Persecution

*Footage courtesy "The Voice of the Martyrs" | *Music courtesy "The Champion and His Burning Flame"
Orissa has one of the worst records for violence against Christians, due in part to the activities of a religious fundamentalist group. Many churches have been destroyed and Christian workers continue to be attacked. There is a law prohibiting conversion and, since 2000, baptism requires the permission of the government. About a year ago, Hindu radicals went on a "bloody rampage that left 50,000 Christians fleeing for their lives into the state's forests." (GFA, 2009).

"This dramatic testimony shocked the Western world! After spending years in underground prison cells and solitary confinement, enduring inhumane tortures, Richard and Sabina Wurmbrand emerged with the testimony of today’s Christian martyrs. The 30th Anniversary Edition features photos, testimonies from Christian leaders and an update on the work of The Voice of the Martyrs. "
