Pastor * has been ministering at Yolcamp City, Dharmsala Tehsil, Kangra District, Himachal Pradesh.
As usual, just after the prayer meeting at the Church, the congregation were sharing a meal together. Suddenly a mob of religious fanatics gathered and took strong objection to the meeting. They began shouting abuse and threatening both the congregation and the Pastor.
The religious fundamentalists along with drunk man, used the opportunity to manhandle Pastor. He was subjected to a torrent of verbal abuse which soon escalated into beating him and the members that had congregated. They also tore his clothes and left him and his family members bleeding.
The radicals complained about the loud ‘Hallelujah’s and the high volume of the prayer meeting. The badly shaken up Pastor later filed a complaint with the Police.
* Pastor’s name has not been disclosed due to safety reasons. Across India, many men and women are living in a state of fear. Church please remember the persecuted in your daily prayers.
