Pastor beaten up by fanatics then arrested by Police, Rajasthan

65-year old Pastor was brutally beaten up by religious fundamentalists, then arrested by Police, for allegedly being involved in conversion activities at village in Suratgarh, Sri Ganganagar District, Rajasthan.

Pastor M. Varghese of IPC Ebenezer Church, was reportedly attacked because he visited an old lady, who invited Pastor to her home for prayers. During the prayer meeting, religious fanatics barged into the meeting, falsely accusing him of trying to convert the members of the home.  The mob, shouting, ‘Jai Sri Ram, Jai Sri Ram, attacked Pastor, mercilessly and brutally beating him in spite of his pleas.

A complaint was filed and the Police arrived at the scene and arrested the Pastor, who was booked under Section 107 and 151. Bail application has been submitted.

Since the beginning of this year, several anti-Christian attacks by religious fundamentalists, have been reported.

Church, please pray for the complete and miraculous healing of Pastor Varghese. Pray for Rajasthan.
