Church in Nepal Forced to Shut Down
Morning Star News, November 16, 2018
High-caste Hindus have harassed a church in Nepal, forcing it to shut down last week.
For two months Brahmins, the highest Hindu caste, had disrupted worship of the church each week and Church members had resorted to meeting in homes, but the Brahmins issued threats to anyone meeting anywhere.
Church attendance dwindled from 30 to 15-18 people before disbanding last weekend due to fear.
Initially the Brahmins objected to guitar and drums in the church service, and then to the Lord’s Supper once a month.
Where there had previously been no opposition, extremist Hindu groups from India have influenced Nepal’s Hindus.
