Posted: Saturday, October 6, 2007, 9:52 (BST)Six Christian convert families have been ostracised and threatened by Muslim leaders in their village, Christian Today has learned.
It has also been reported that a group of Muslims forced a Christian woman to strip in order to check for any marks of conversion on her body.
The incident occurred on September 4 in Natungram village in West Bengal’s Murshidabad district, according to International Christian Concern (ICC), although the victims have not lodged a complaint with the police yet out of fear for their lives.
The head of a local mosque in the Muslim-dominated Natungram village, identified as Nur Islam, summoned the heads of six families that had converted from Islam to a village meeting, where hundreds of Muslims had also been called, a source told ICC.
In the meeting, the Christians were forced to deny Christ with a warning that if they refused they would be completely ostracized and possibly killed. Source.
