Rev.A.Stanislaus Ministering in Berachah AG Church, Thalavaipuram, Ganapathipuram P.O, Kanniyakumari District Pin.629502 of Tamil Nadu State.
Speaking to Persecution Relief, Rev Stanislaus, said past 24 years, we had been worshiping here without any problem at all and everybody around us also never had any problem with us.
More than 100 believers attend the worship service every week on Sunday’s.
On 22nd of April 2018 a policeman came with a paper and summoned me to Police Station at 5 PM.
Policeman said a Neighbour has lodged a a complaint against you and and in the complaint he mentioned that , you are using Loudspeakers, you are conducting Worship Service without permission and you are involved in converting people to Christianity.
Rev Stanislaus said I reached at 5 PM sharp but the person who filed the complaint never turned up and I was made to wait till 10 PM in the night.
Then Police asked us to write a letter stating that we visited the Police station and we are conducting the worship service without disturbing anybody and in future also we will not give any trouble to the Neighborhood.
On 23/4/18 again I was summoned to the Police Station asking for some documents which I went and submitted.
Today 28/4/18 a Sub Inspector visited us asking to come to Station because the complainant came to the station and he is adamant that, he will not allow Sunday Worship to happen.
Church Pray for the Worship Service across India, lot of house Church’s are being attacked by religious fanatics in Tamil Nadu specially.
Freedom of Worship is becoming impossible in many states across India.
