Police raided Jehovah's Witness Mansur Masharipov's home in Dashoguz in July 2014, seized religious literature (subsequently destroyed), beat him, placed him in a Drug Rehabilitation Centre where he was injected with unknown drugs (from which he fled). Arrested in June 2016, he was imprisoned for one year.


Wow, our brothers in the former USSR are really suffering.

I read a book about what Jehovah's Witnesses endured in concentration camps during WWII. Their persecution was more severe than that of the rest of the population (other than those who were killed). Non Witnesses looking on later said that when they were thrust into the camp it was a completely alien place where savagery, sadism & inhumane acts prevailed. Each man was on their own in a minute by minute struggle to survive. There was NO love anywhere by anyone!


In contrast, Witnesses were organized. They stuck together in love towards each other and others when they could. When a Witness came to the camp, they were welcomed with a piece of bread (that they saved from their own meager starvation meals) and hugs from their brothers and sisters. Because of their love it made the unbearable, bearable.


That warms my heart. We may not see or feel what we consider "love" at meetings or otherwise but when it really counts I am sure that we WILL be there to help each other through whatever comes like those brothers and sisters did! :)
