Pastor Dharmesh Rawat has been 3 ministering in Dhoral, Jamnagar, Gujarat,affiliated with AG Church since past 4 years. Every Sunday,around 100 believers gather to worship in this make-shift temporary shed made of sheets, with no walls around it.
On Sunday, 12th November, during worship service, a mob of unidentified religious fundamentalists, who trespassed into the Church premises and began threatening the Pastor and all the congregation. They threatened to strip the people and make them walk naked on the streets.
The same incident happened in the month of October. During the worship service, while Pastor was delivering the message, a mob of religious fundamentalists walked in and started abusing and threatening the believers. They also beat Pastor Dharmesh and 2 elders Manoj and Vinod, accusing them of converting people. They were forcibly taken to the Police station and detained for a day in jail.
Apparently, the Police were also threatened by the religious fundamentalists with dire action and claimed helplessness in the matter, standing as mute spectators.
Church, please pray that God will give grace and strength to our Pastors who are working in the interiors of India and show mercy to their persecutors.
