UPDATE: On June 10, The Voice of the Martyrs received a copy of a letter from the Nepal Defense Fund (NDF), threatening to bomb 10 Christian homes in Nepal, if believers did not leave in 30 days, according to The Voice of the Martyrs contacts.
The letter written by R.P. Mainali, the supreme commander of the NDF, published in a local newspaper, said the Nepalese government should not have released 62 Christians, in 1989 and 1990, who had been jailed for actively proselytising. The letter warned that these Christians, who have continued their work, were threatening Hinduism. “We are giving these unholy elements who are grabbing the authority of the people of the country under the cloak of religion, a notice of one month to leave the country, otherwise we will explode 10 bombs in the homes of the 10 Christians in Nepal, for which we take responsibility in advance,” the NDP letter said.
The NDF bombed a Catholic church in Kathmandu on May 23, killing three believers and injuring 15 others. In 2008 NDF mutilated and murdered a Catholic priest and made death threats to believers and Christian leaders. In the past the group has also taken responsibility for bomb attacks on other Christian Churches. “Their leader states that their goal is to return Nepal to a Hindu State and to rid Nepal of the Christians,” VOM contacts added
The Voice of the Martyrs encourages you to pray for believers in Nepal who are living under these threats. Ask God to protect them and for their courageous testimony to draw non believers into fellowship with Christ.
