Training Program attacked by religious fundamentalists
A Training Program undertaken at Rashtriya Susamachar Parishad, located at Izzat Nagar, Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh, was attacked by a mob of religious fundamentalists this evening.
The 3-Day Training Program, was being held from 06 September – today is the final day of the program, where 27 persons had enrolled.
Rashtriya Susamachar Parishad is a private and established Centre for the past 25 years. During the Program, an unidentified youth walked in observed the program and left. He soon returned with a slogan shouting mob, accompanied with Police Officials, who demanded that the proceedings be stopped.
Pr Ashok Benjamin, Pr Shiv Charan & Br Vijay who were leading the discussion, were brutally beaten up by the mob, alleging ‘religious conversion’ training, while the Police Officials were mute spectators. Both were eventually taken to Prem nagar Police Station, Bareilly, while the mob followed them there. ‘
Speaking to Persecution Relief, Pastor Vijay Masih mentioned that the situation outside the Police Station was still hostile, as the religious fundamentalists have virtually created a siege around the police station, raising slogans.
Church pray for the safe release of these men of God and for the situation to return to normalcy.
