India: Christian Couple Who Refused to Deny Christ Forced to Stand in Freezing Pond for 17 Hours
A Christian couple in India was severely punished by being made to stand in frigid water for 17 hours because they refused to deny their Christian faith.
The Christian Post reports that Bartu Urawn and his wife, who both converted to Christianity from their villageâ€™s tribal religion, Sarna Dharam, over 10 years ago, were targeted by members of Kubuaa village in the Jharkhand state.
Village members who adhere to Sarna Dharam abducted Urawn and his wife, tied their hands, and forced them to stand neck-deep in the frigid pond water from 5 p.m. through 10 a.m. the next morning. They also forced the coupleâ€™s son, Beneswar, to watch his parents endure this torture.
When the couple didnâ€™t die from the freezing water, the villagers reportedly took them out and beat them. Bartu Urawn ultimately died from this beating and being immersed in the water. The Urawn family were also prohibited from giving Bartu a proper funeral.
“I told the villagers that I will bury him in my own personal land, but they stood with wooden sticks to attack if I tried,” Beneswar said. He and four other Christians had to carry his fatherâ€™s body six miles to bury him on government land.
