NEPAL – High Caste Hindus Force Church to Close in Western Nepal

International Christian Concern | Nov. 19, 2018

Using threats and social pressure, high caste Hindus, including local Brahmins, forced a newly planted church in the Palpa District of Nepal to shut down. According to members of the Pakhluwa Eternal Life Church, they are now forced to worship in secret or face further harassment.

For two months, worship services at the Pakhluwa Eternal Life Church, which was planted nine months ago, were disturbed by local Brahmins. Initially, the Brahmins objected to the worship music at the church. When the church stopped its worship music program, the Brahmins then objected to the practice of taking communion.
