  Intimidation, Threats and Harassment, Physical assault


On Wednesday, June 15th, four Christians who were distributing gospel tracts were stopped by religious fanatics in a village called Thotiyaturai near the Kundadam Police Station, in Pollachi. They were accused of converting people to Christianity and were beaten with whatever the attackers could get hold of. They sustained injuries. Thereafter they were taken to the police station. The complaints against the Christians were found to be baseless. The attackers then tendered a written apology stating that it was all a misunderstanding and that they realized that the Christians had not indulged in any conversion work. The Christians decided not to file any counter complaint.
