A gang of 50 Muslim extremists disrupted a prayer meeting at a Christian woman’s home in West Bengal, an Indian state that borders Bangladesh. Threatening to burn down the home, the group told Selina Bibi, a convert from Islam to Christianity, that she must leave the area or return to Islam.

The woman, who was baptized a Protestant in March, had been stripped and beaten by local Muslims following her conversion.

25% of West Bengal’s population is Muslim; nationwide, the figure is 13%.
