Thirteen Christian families have been forced out of their homes in central India.

They were assaulted and expelled from their village for refusing to deny their faith.

Anti-persecution advocates The Voice of the Martyrs says the village council forced the 66 individuals including children and the elderly to leave the rural town in the state of Chhattisgarh.

The council demanded that they return to their former tribal religion.

When the believers refused to recant their faith, other residents attacked them.

They were forced to leave all their belongings behind and have since gone to live with relatives in other villages.

The incident was reported to local police who have so far refused to take any action over the religious discrimination.

The Voice of the Martyrs says more than 150 families have been impacted in tribal villages across the state.

India which is a Hindu dominated nation has seen an escalation in the persecution of Christian minorities in recent years.
