On the 03rd of October, 20 Christians from Chennai were passing out leaflets and Bible tracts in Appakudal village, Bhavani Tehsil, Erode, Tamil Nadu. All of them are from different Churches and their ministry called “Tamil Nadu Soul Harvesting Ministry”.
A mob of unidentified religious fundamentalists, noticing them distributing tracts, surrounded them and confiscated all material. Gospel tracts are small booklets that present the gospel. The goal of a gospel tract is to get the gospel of salvation of Jesus Christ into peoples’ hands in an interesting and easy-to-read format.
They were threatened, verbally abused and insulted for their faith in Jesus Christ. Finally, they forced all 20 of them into a van and took them to the local police station. These 20 Christians were questioned for hours as the mob falsely accused of entering the villager’s homes and forcing them to convert to Christianity.
It was only when Senior Leaders from the Synod of Pentecostal Churches called the Police Inspector of the Station, explaining the circumstances, that they were finally released with a firm warning that no evangelism or preaching or prayer meetings should be held without prior permission.
