India PM Narendra ModiA Kansas pastor has urged President Trump to hold the country of India accountable for the widespread persecution taking place there against Christians and other religious minorities.

The president met today with Prime Minister Modi of India (right) at the White House and Rob Rotola, pastor of Word of Life Church in Wichita wants Trump to expose the persecution that's happening. The pastor says the church's ministry has some 90 churches in India and they've heard first-hand about some of the oppression.

"[We've heard of] the burning of churches and the police state pretty much doing nothing as the radical Hindu sects are slaughtering Christians sometimes publicly right in the streets," he tells OneNewsNow.

According to Rotola, the oppression used to be kept to a minimum – but now the persecution has become a norm in certain parts of the country since Modi came into power in 2014.

"There is a holocaust going on in India," the pastor laments. "Our president and the leading conservative voices in the nation and all God-fearing [people] – or even people who just simply care about human suffering no matter what religion they come from – should be concerned to stand against this behavior."

He urged Trump to demand that India make the protection of Christians and other religious minorities a first priority.
