‘Aren’t easy to come by’: Christian zealot Chau travelled without missionary visa to convert the Sentinelese

Others interviewed in the report by Washington Post agreed that Chau was obsessed with the Sentinelese tribe and it was his ambition to convert the uncontacted tribe to Christianity

As per a new report on the Washington Post, the Missionary organization John Allen Chau belonged to was aware that he had travelled to India as a tourist without a proper missionary visa because they “aren’t easy to come by”. Chau was the Christian missionary who was killed by the Sentinelese tribe when he attempted to convert them to Christianity at the North Sentinel Island.

Mary Ho, the international executive leader of All nations, a missionary organization that sends evangelicals to 40 countries, said that the group provided him with training and support. As per the report, she was “surprised by the “soft-spoken, very gentle young man” who had a very “radical call” to find “unreached groups.” Ho said further, “You could see that every decision he has made, every step he has taken since then was driven by his desire to be among the North Sentinelese people.” Contrary to Indian authorities, Ho insists that Chau had not violated any laws.

Others interviewed in the report agreed that Chau was obsessed with the Sentinelese tribe and it was his ambition to convert the uncontacted tribe to Christianity. His friend, John Middleton Ramsey, claims that Chau was aware that what his actions were not legal. “He knew of the dangers of this place,” Ramsey said as per the report. “He didn’t want any hearts to get broken should something go wrong. He was very much aware of what he was doing. He also knew it wasn’t exactly legal.”

As we have reported earlier, Christian missionaries zealously believe that Judgment Day will arrive only when every people group in the world has some number of Christians. Zealot Christians have also dubbed Chau who risked wiping out the entire Sentinelese tribe, a ‘martyr‘ for the cause of Jesus. He wanted to ‘establish the Kingdom of Jesus on the island’. It appears that the religious zealotry of the Christian evangelical community contributed significantly towards Chau’s ultimate fate.
