Jehovah’s Witnesses, a Christian religious group, had their prayer meeting in Kochi, India disrupted by bomb blasts, resulting in two deaths and 51 injuries. The group, which originated in 19th century America, believes in worshiping Jehovah as the God of the Bible and rejects the Holy Trinity. They follow strict social mores, such as abstaining from blood transfusions and discouraging divorce. Jehovah’s Witnesses operate in local groups without central leadership. A man claiming to be a Jehovah’s Witness surrendered to the police, claiming responsibility for the blasts due to the group’s “seditious” preachings. The police are investigating the incident.
