The Least Of These

The Least Of These


In January 1999, the Indian village of Manoharpur hit newspaper headlines when Grahamm Staines, a 58-year-old Australian missionary, was burnt to death with his two sons when a mob set light to the station wagon in which they were sleeping. Extremists had accused him of illegally converting leprosy patients to Christianity.

Twenty years later, his story has been made into a film, The Least of These, directed by Haggai leader Aneesh Daniel.

Aneesh has 30 years of experience in the movie industry – with 11 Telefilms, 15 corporate films, and a 125-episode live-action TV series to his credit. And, in 1997, he won the CBN International President’s Award for Integrity and Honesty.

According to Victor Abraham, executive producer for the film, the movie “beautifully illustrates the power of love, hope, and forgiveness to overcome hate. It is the very edict of the commandment to love your neighbor as you love yourself.”

The film was released in the U.S. in February this year.
