Death of John Allen Chau

In November 2018, an American preacher and missionary, John Allen Chau, ignored India's laws against visiting North Sentinel Island and paid local fishermen to transport him to the island by boat on several occasions. Reportedly, his goal was to convert the Islanders from their native religious beliefs, if such exist, to Christianity. On his final visit, Chau was shot at with arrows by the Islanders and ultimately died from his wounds. As Chau broke numerous laws in his attempts to make contact with the Islanders and as India considers the tribe to be a sovereign nation, it's unlikely that the courts will express any interest in prosecuting the Islanders, who currently number between 50 and 150 people. However, the fishermen who ferried Chau to the island illegally have been arrested and may face a number of charges, including homicide.[19][20][21][22] This is the first incident of the Islanders attacking individuals since two Indian poachers, Sunder Raj and Pandit Tiwari, were killed while trying to harvest mud crabs while under the influence of alcohol.

International Christian Concern (ICC) is an ecumenical, non-governmental, non-partisan Christian organization, located in Washington, DC, whose concern is the human rights of Christians and religious minorities.[1][2] Its mission is to help religious minorities from all forms of persecution through assistance, advocacy, and awareness.
ICC was founded in 1995 by Steve Snyder, former president of the USA Division of Christian Solidarity International. In 2002, Snyder was succeeded as ICC President by Jeff King, who had served 11 years with Campus Crusade for Christ.[3]
The organization has issued reports on persecution of Christians in countries such as China, Saudi Arabia,[4] Iraq,[5] and Algeria.[6] In recent years ICC has also worked to raise the profile of religious persecution in Mexico,[7] Pakistan,[8] Egypt, and India along with individual cases such as Sudanese Christian mother Meriam Ibrahim and Pakistani Christian Asia Bibi.

CSI’s participation in slave liberation efforts in Sudan has received criticism. In 1999, UNICEF called the practice “intolerable,” claiming that it was not a “lasting solution” to the slavery problem and faulting it for implicitly accepting that human beings can be purchased. UNICEF also claimed that paying money for slaves provided combatants in the war with cash for buying weapons.[21] Human Rights Watch stated that buying back slaves might provide a “monetary incentive” for further slave raiding and warned of the “risk of fraud in the redemption process.[22] ” In 2002, a State Department report on the issue declared, “As a matter of principle, no person holding another who has been abducted or enslaved should be paid to secure that person’s release. …we believe that some legitimate concerns about this practice have been raised.[23]” Other critics agree that the campaign "encourages the taking of slaves" and "reduces the incentive for owners to set them free without payment" (the New York Times),[24] or "undercuts" the "battle against slavery" (Richard Miniter for The Atlantic).[25]
CSI responded to UNICEF’s 1999 critique by claiming that it never brought American dollars into the warzone, and redeemed slaves only with Sudanese pounds to decrease the potential for fueling the arms trade.[21] Today, CSI claims to use only cattle vaccine in its exchanges. On its website, CSI defends the morality of paying for the release of slaves “when there is no better way to affect liberation, and when the families of the enslaved and the leaders of the victimized community desire it.” CSI argues that slavery in Sudan is “not driven mainly by economic forces,” but by “political and military factors. The suspension of slave raiding in Southern Sudan at the time of the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement…clearly proves this fact.” CSI claims that it “has employed many safeguards to prevent against fraud,” including “independent investigations,” and involving “many people, representing different segments of the victimized communities…in the documentation process.” It adds, “None of the few outsiders who have claimed that not all the slaves are genuine have ever produced the name or other details of a false slave. Such allegations remain today unsubstantiated.[26]
In 2008, journalist Charles Sennott wrote that CSI was “overreacting to events in the Middle East” in its campaign to save Iraqi Christians.[27]

Cru (known as Campus Crusade for Christ -- informally "Campus Crusade" or simply "crusade" -- or CCC until 2011) is an interdenominational Christian parachurch organization for college and university students.[1] It was founded in 1951 at the University of California, Los Angeles by Bill Bright and Vonette Zachary Bright. Since then, Cru has expanded its focus to include adult professionals, athletes, and high school students. In 2011, Cru had 25,000 missionaries in 191 countries.[2]
Campus Crusade for Christ relocated its world headquarters from Arrowhead Springs, San Bernardino, California to Orlando, Florida in 1991.[3] The current president of the organization is Steve Douglass.[4]
In 2011, Campus Crusade for Christ in the United States changed its name to Cru, to avoid the negative connotation of "crusade" from the historical Crusades (particularly to Muslim communities), and to reflect the fact that much of the organization's work was no longer limited to college campuses.[2]
