On 01 April, as Evangelist V. A. Antony (Brethren Church, Satna, Madhya Pradesh) his wife Prabha Antony, his daughter and 3 sisters who are members of the Church, were returning after worship service, when their vehicle was intentionally blocked, by religious fanatics who were travelling in a Scorpio.
The fanatics surrounded the vehicle and began shouting slogans and abuses and accusing the Brother of indulging in conversion activities. The unruly radicals were so intimidating that they meant to beat the occupants of the car. But as the sisters began to shout for help, the mob forcibly took the Christians to the Police Station at Satna. They are currently in the Kolgama Police Station and the fanatics is pressuring the Police to lodge an FIR against them.
Bro. Antony’s son, Bro. Enoch, called Persecution Relief to narrate this incident and request for immediate release of the Christians. A similar incident involving Bro. V. A. Antony occurred in 2016, where the family were detained by Police for questioning.
Persecution Relief Team spoke to the Police Officials seeking impartial justice.
