Barnabas director Patrick Sookhdeo launches new website

Country/Region: United Kingdom, Europe

PS_Blog_Logo_4X3.jpg

Dr Patrick Sookhdeo, International Director of Barnabas Fund, is today launching his new website, featuring articles, interviews and an in-depth biography.

The website address is www.patricksookhdeo.com

The biography outlines his life-long battle against discrimination and injustice in a variety of contexts, and his courageous efforts to combat religious intolerance and violence on the international stage. 

Here is an extract: 

Throughout his life, Dr Sookhdeo has been an ardent social activist in the field of rights of the individual. In the 1970s he opposed racism and likewise today he opposes the Islamists and Islamo-Fascists who deny justice to converts from Islam, full rights to women and full freedom to non-Muslim minorities, and who wish to transform societies into religious totalitarian societies, whether in Muslim-majority countries or in the UK and Western societies. He has always argued passionately for social justice. This includes the freedom of every individual to choose or reject a religion, the rights of women to full equality, and the rights of minorities not to be discriminated against. This passion has resulted in Dr Sookhdeo being opposed by both neo-Nazi organizations and the left, who are increasingly associated with some of the worst forms of oppression, whether of race, religion, culture or gender.

The site includes a collection of Dr Sookhdeo’s interviews and writings, including previously unreleased works, such as his security briefings on Iraq and Afghanistan that were presented to the British military in 2006 and 2009 respectively. Pieces written about Dr Sookhdeo are also featured.   

A chronological list of his books is available plus a number of reviews.

    • “We had this feeling that jihadists wanted to wipe out any trace of Christianity in the north of Mali. But God in His goodness has not allowed such an eventuality,” said Dr Yattara, the president of the Baptist Church in northern Mali, to World Watch Monitor in September. He was describing how most of the Christians who had fled the region when Islamist radicals took control in 2012 have now returned to their homes after French troops ousted the Islamists. Many church buildings were desecrated, looted or severely damaged, but the Christians are determined to resume their ministries. Praise God for the continued Christian presence in northern Mali, for the courage of the Christians and for the religious liberty that they have under the law.

    • Pray for the friends and family of Beatrice Mukashaka, an 18-year-old Christian woman, who was hacked to death in a savage attack by Muslims during an overnight prayer meeting at a church in Uganda. A group of around 20 Christians had gathered at the church in Kyegegwa district for their regular Friday night prayer session when armed Muslims burst into the building at around 2am. Please pray for all who mourn for Beatrice and that the assailants will be brought to justice. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Sat, Oct 2014 00:00

    • Churches in Christian-majority Burundi are facing the unfamiliar situation of political restriction by their own government because of a new law passed in August that requires each church to have at least 500 members and a proper building. Congregations have a year in which to comply with the new regulations. Although intended to reduce some scandalous practices, the law is strangely reminiscent of the strict regimes of Central Asia. Pray that religious liberty will be maintained in Burundi, both for Christians and for the small minorities who follow other religions. Subscribe to the prayer points rss feed Fri, Oct 2014 00:00

    • Pray for eight Cameroonian missionaries who have been harshly reminded of the cost of sharing the Gospel in their country during a training seminar to equip them for ministry. Barnabas had helped to fund a series of seminars, and on the final day of the last seminar they heard that Jean-Marcel Kesvere, another Cameroonian missionary, who had been planning to attend the seminar with his wife, had been kidnapped by Boko Haram and that his body had been found earlier that day. Give thanks for the response of the missionaries, who expressed their willingness to suffer similarly for Christ, and pray that their work will bear much fruit (John 12:24).

    • Please pray for Christians in northern Cameroon, where Boko Haram is terrorising people, especially Christians and security forces, just as in neighbouring Nigeria. The Islamist militants openly declare themselves to be Boko Haram, and issue threats by letter, including to pastors telling them they must leave. Two pastors were killed in the village of Assigashia on the night of 25-26 August, hich has caused great distress and consternation. The Cameroonian Christians ask for prayer that God will bring peace and security, that the kidnapped will be released, that believers will stand firm despite being targeted, that God will comfort the traumatised, and that church leaders will know how to prepare their people for persecution.
