Jehovah’s Witnesses, whose gathering in Kerala’s Kalamassery was bombed by an extremist on Sunday, is a reformative religious movement that seeks to restore Christianity to what they believe is a purer form by expunging so-called corruptions from it. Their ultimate aim is to prepare humanity for the establishment of God’s Kingdom on earth.

It is estimated that Witnesses Church has around 8 million followers globally, including thousands in Kerala.

Unlike Catholic Christians, they do not believe in hell or the divine trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

They also oppose many practices, which are found in some Christian organizations — such as speaking in tongues, ecstasy, ornate rituals and other forms of luxury, and reject the complicated hierarchy found in many churches.
