Forced cancellation of 3-day Convention:

 

 

Protest was made by members of Hindu fundamentalist organizations to stop the 3- day Convention scheduled from 01- 03 June title "Barkatho Ki Barsat' at Maharaja Palace, Ghagha Road, in Samana city, a municipal council in Patiala district in the Indian state of Punjab. Religious fanatics from this organization, accused the organizers of ‘conversion’ activities and surrounded the location with loud protests.

The mob leader from Shiv Sena, Praveen Sharma, threatened to self- immolate if the meeting was not cancelled. Another member of the group, apparently fainted. Seeing this commotion, the Tehsildar, Ram Kishan, demanded the meeting to be cancelled. At the time this story went to press, by the grace of God, the convention went ahead as planned though behind schedule. Church, please pray for these anti-Christians.
