Christian School targeted again in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh
Jolly Memorial Mission School, Co-Educational Senior Secondary institution, located in Ora Park, Near Sethi Nagar, Tempo Stand, Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh.
Pastor Renni Chacko founded, this school 17 years ago, with just a handful of children. With his sincerity, hard work, honesty, and commitment, the school now has a strength of over 500 children.
On Sunday 04th February, when Pr Renni returned from Church after worship service, he found that the foundation work is finished and the neighbor has installed a idol of their god.
2 years ago, the neighbor Mr. Pandey has made a temple just in the boundary of the school, which was in the pathway to residential quarters of the school teachers. However, just to avoid any enmity against the neighbors he overlooked and as Jesus taught, never went for any arguments.
Recently, they have started making another temple and that too in the school land and on the way. They have completed the plastering work as well. Police were informed and when they arrived, they stopped the construction work. As soon as they left, they commenced the work again. Then the police team headed with TI came. There was a huge commotion and objections raised by the local religious fundamentalists who joined the side of the neighbour. They made false baseless allegations that the School had broken the idol when no such thing was done. The Tehsildar visited the site and measured everything. They have been called for a meeting tomorrow, 08th of February.
Pastor Renni Chacko spoke with Persecution Relief Founder, Bro. Shibu Thomas and confirmed this incident. He was disappointed at the turn of events after serving the community for so many years.
Church, please pray for the meeting scheduled for tomorrow with the Tehsildar, that the truth must prevail.
Please also pray for Christian Educational Institutions that are under frequent attack by religious fundamentalists across India.
