Hindu extremists in the the area of Tewardih, Varanasi kidnapped the 30-year-old Christian convert named Joginder Gold after frequently demanding that he and his family stop worshiping Christ.
Gold told Morning Star News that the extremists kidnapped him around 11 a.m. on April 9 while he was on his way to the market to sell vegetables.
According to an area church leader named Rev. Patsy David who spoke with Morning Star News, the six Hindu radicals accused Gold of stealing vegetables from their farm house. Gold denied the accusation and said he could take the men to the seller who sold him the vegetables.
