Indian Christians Potentially Restricted From Parliament Seats

April 12, 2019

4/6/19 India (International Christian Concern)- Indian traditional tribal group, Central Sarna Simiti, petitioned the government earlier this week regarding eligibility of parliamentary candidates. The group declared that tribal people who had converted to Christianity should not be allowed to run for seats allocated for tribal communities in parliament. The Indian parliament consists of 543 elected seats where 47 are reserved for tribal communities and 84 for candidates from poor castes.

They argue that those who have converted from Hinduism have abandoned tribal culture and ethos, and therefore should not be eligible for the limited number of seats. Christian leaders have countered saying that this new effort highlights the goal of many to make India a Hindu-only nation. Hindu groups are historically opposed to Christians because of their efforts to educate and strengthen those from tribal or poor communities.

The Christian community is politically insignificant as there is limited concentration throughout the country and only make up just over 2% of the population.

THE GOOD NEWS

SALVATION

Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.

  1. God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
  2. The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
  3. But God…because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-42cor 5:21

All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you’re a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.

‘that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. ‘

Romans 10:9
