India: Tea Vendor Who Was to Convert to Islam to Save Business May Not Have Converted Soon Enough
Revelation 13:17, “… no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.”
“This Friday he was to officially convert to Islam. But Sunil Bhalegare, who wore skull cap to make a point on the alleged bias shown by the BJP-ruled Vadodara Municipal Corporation in removing encroachments, has gone missing.
A roadside tea vendor outside the General post office in Raopura area of the city, Bhalegare was under the impression that VMC’s anti-encroachment squad was targetting only vendors of a particular community.
So he wore a skull cap to protect his business and has now gone missing since Thursday.
He had claimed that Muslim vendors were spared by the encroachment removal squads.
When The Sunday Express team visited the spot where he was doing business till October 13, the place was deserted while other nearby vendors were doing business as usual.
His family says they will register a formal complaint with police if he did not return home by Sunday. They said they were not aware of his whereabouts.” Read more.
