Thomas D. Williams reports at Breitbart:

In the latest instance of lethal violence against Christians in India, two masked gunmen on motorcycles shot a Christian pastor to death on Saturday night as he was standing outside the Temple of God church in Punjab state.

The 50-year-old Rev. Sultan Masih was standing outside the church talking on his mobile phone around 8:45 on Saturday evening when two armed youths with their faces covered drove by on a motorcycle and fired multiple shots at the pastor from a close range, according to police. . . .

"The pastor sustained a bullet wound to the head and two more to the chest and was rushed to a nearby hospital where doctors pronounced him dead on arrival," Breitbart reports.

"Rev. Masih had been serving at the Temple of God Church for more than two decades and reportedly had no enmity with anybody," according to Breitbart. "The pastor also ran a school for poor children inside the church. He is survived by his wife and two children."
