Pastor warned to stop worship service in rented Hall, Tamil Nadu
Persecution Relief received a call on the Toll Free No 1800-1234-461 from Pr. Immanuel Nesaraj, who has been pastoring Peace Prayer House in the district of Theni of Tamil Nadu state.
Since 2003 Pastor has been running the Church with more than 80 believers attending the worship service.
Presently they are conducting the Worship service in a rented place at a commercial area. 2 people from the neighborhood instigated the owners, formed a team and lodged a complaint at Theni Police station that the worship service should be stopped immediately.
As Inspector Mr. Murganandan had summoned Pastor on Sunday, 04th of February, to the Police station, at around 2.30 pm, Pastor went to the Police Station to meet the Inspector of Police, after the Worship Service.
The Inspector insisted that no further worship services should be conducted in the commercial premises with immediate effect. When Pastor asked for the reason, the Inspector had no concrete reason except to say that he had received a formal complaint against the Church.
Pastor has submitted a written application affirming that he has not converted anybody, not distributed any tracts, not visited any homes, and handed it to the Inspector.
The Church in India has never faced a situation like this where we are forbidden to conduct worship service in our homes, our private properties, our own Church, Commercial place, Auditoriums etc.
Church Pray for the situation returns to normalcy, and also pray that they can continue the worship at the same place peacefully.
Pray for the 2 Persecutors who are instigating and encouraging people to act against the Pastor and Church.
