On April 7 in Maharajganj, Hindu extremists from the allegedly Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh barged into the Christian meeting and beat them up.

According to local sources, Ajit Pal, at about 8 a.m, armed fundamentalists forcefully entered into the “Festival of Deliverance” conducted by Maharajganj Baptist Church (MBC), accusing them of forceful conversion, verbally abused and started to beat them up.

Apart from the Christian leaders, the extremists targeted one believer, Ambika Prasad, a new follower of Christ, who gave the local church a land worth 1.2 million, reported a representative of the MBC.

About ten enraged extremists with their iron rods beat up the Christians injuring Pastor Ram Chander Vish Prasad and his wife, Ambika Prasad and some believers. The police soon reached the spot and put the situation under control.
