Title: American missionary John Chau told Andaman island tribe ‘Jesus loves you’, before they attacked him with arrows

PORT BLAIR, INDIA (AFP) - An American missionary killed in a hail of arrows by an island tribe untouched by modern civilisation was bent on converting them to Christianity, it emerged on Thursday (Nov 22).  

Mr John Allen Chau, 27, was attacked last week as he illegally set foot on the remote North Sentinel Island in the Indian Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal. 

He was crying: “My name is John. I love you and Jesus loves you... Here is some fish!”

A statement attributed to his family posted on his purported Instagram account said that Mr Chau “had nothing but love for the Sentinelese people. We forgive those reportedly responsible for his death.” 

Mr Chau had paddled his kayak towards the shore carrying fish and a football as gifts, according to a journal quoted by different media. 

Tribespeople fired arrows at him, one of then piercing his Bible, and he returned to a fishermen’s boat and spent the night writing about his experiences before going back to the island the next day. 

He never returned. 

North Sentinel, which is around the same size of Manhattan Island in New York, is home to the hunter-gatherer Sentinelese people, believed to number only around 150. 

To protect their way of life – the few photos that exist show them all but naked carrying spears, bows and arrows – foreigners and Indians are banned from going within 5km of the island. 

The tribe is seen as hostile to outsiders, having reportedly killed two fishermen whose boat drifted onto the island in 2006, and to have fired arrows at a helicopter checking for damage after the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami. 

Mr Chau called himself an “outbound collective explorer” and “snakebite survivor” on his purported Instagram account. 

Indian authorities say that Mr Chau paid local fishermen to take him to near the island so that he could paddle the rest of the way himself. 

“You guys might think I’m crazy in all this but I think it’s worthwhile to declare Jesus to these people,” the reports quoted a letter to his parents as saying. 

“Please do not be angry at them or at God if I get killed,” he said. 

“I can’t wait to see them around the throne of God worshipping in their own language as Revelations 7:9-10 states,” he wrote, referring to the apocalyptic final book of the Bible’s New Testament. 

“God, I don’t want to die.”

Fishermen saw the tribe burying his body on the beach the following day, a fellow missionary wrote in an e-mail to his mother, the Washington Post reported. 

HIGHLY SENSITIVE

Indian police have consulted field experts including anthropologists and tribal welfare and forest officers to help them try and retrieve Mr Chau’s body.  

“We have to take care that we must not disturb them or their habitat by any means. It is a highly sensitive zone and it will take some time,” Mr Dependra Pathak, local chief of police, told AFP.  

He said that a helicopter and then a ship were sent to the area to identify where the incident took place, and that they were holding talks with experts on how best to handle the delicate situation.  

“We maintained a distance from the island and have not yet been able to spot the body. It may take some more days and... (reconnaissance) of the area,” Mr Pathak said.  

Since the Indian authorities keep away from the island, it was unclear whether Mr Chau’s killing will have legal repercussions.  

Indian police said a murder case had been registered against “unknown” tribespeople and that the fishermen who allegedly helped Mr Chau get to the island were arrested.  

London-based Survival International, which defends tribal rights, said that the “tragedy” of the American’s death “should never have been allowed to happen”.  

“The Indian authorities should have been enforcing the protection of the Sentinelese and their island for the safety of both the tribe and outsiders,” it said.

I think it might have been a good idea if he got to know them, hard to do but if he paddled around their island out of bow shot...……..

So,these stone age cretins are going to be kept as pets and immune from murder charges?

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

That's a little bit TOO much information,Boris.
