Sri Lanka Christians Facing Attacks

BosNewsLife is reporting that attacks on Christians in Sri Lanka have been on the rise lately.

Britain-based Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW), a major rights group, told BosNewsLife there this month saw a “dramatic” increase in attacks against Christians in the country, including Monday, March 3 when the Zion Mount Prayer House in Sri Lanka’s Mulaitivu District was set on fire. “The pastor, his wife, child and two other people were inside at the time, although it is believed they were able to escape.”

The previous day ten Bible School students in Lunuwila, Putlam District, were reportedly attacked by ten masked men on motorbikes.

The violence apparently occurred as the students of the Believers Church Bible College were walking from the railway station. “They were beaten, kicked and attacked with rods. More attackers arrived in a van and dragged one student into the vehicle, where he was beaten and kicked. Nine students were treated in hospital for injuries,” CSW said in a statement.
