Christian Missionary risked wiping out entire Sentinelese tribe to ‘establish the Kingdom of Jesus on the Island’

Advocacy group, Survival International asserts that Chau has risked the existence of the entire tribe by coming in contact with them.

We have reported earlier on the Christian missionary who was killed by the Sentinelese tribe during his effort to convert the aboriginal tribe to Christianity. The Sentinelese people, whose population was estimated to be 40 in the 2011 census, are known to be hostile and resist contact with the outside world.

Now, details have surfaced regarding the notes John Allen Chau had taken during his brief interaction with the tribesmen which he passed on to his friend through the fishermen who carried him to the island.

According to an unnamed source who had access to the notes, Chau wrote he was “doing this to establish the kingdom of Jesus on the island” and said, “Do not blame the natives if I am killed.” “I have been so nice to them, why are they so angry and so aggressive?” the source quoted Chau as saying.

International Christian Concern’s regional manager, William Stark, said, “We here at International Christian Concern are extremely concerned by the reports of an American missionary being murdered in India’s Andaman and Nicobar Islands. Our thoughts and prayers go out to both John’s family and friends.”

A friend of Chau’s called him a ‘martyr’ on Instagram. However, an advocacy group, Survival International asserts that Chau has risked the existence of the entire tribe by coming in contact with them. They state that the missionary may have passed along pathogens which the aboriginal tribe hasn’t developed any immunity to which have the “potential to wipe out the entire tribe”.
