KATHMANDU, NEPAL: Police arrested Trond Berg and three Nepalis after Lokendra Kuma Jha complained to police that the four tried to allure him to convert on an enticement of Nepal Rs. 40,000. The four were arrested several weeks ago at a local inn in Rajbiraj while preaching. Christian organizations around the world have targeted Nepal for conversion, taking advantage of poverty and ignorance to entice Nepalese to change their faith. To prevent the resulting destruction of Nepalese tradition, the country has long outlawed conversion but allows complete freedom of worship.
