On July 07, 2015, in Isagarh, Ashoknagar, Hindutva fundamentalists forcefully barged into a school, misbehaved with a Catholic Nun and beat the Parish Priest. The fundamentalists entered the Jeevan Jyoti Convent School demanding documents with regard to the school’s recognition. When the Principal Sister Lata* told them all the documents were with the school’s administrator, the fundamentalists began to verbally abuse her. One of them even held her hand and pulled her towards himself while physically violating her privacy. She then ran screaming out of her office to Father Raj* who was then beaten up brutally by the fundamentalists. A report was filed at the local Police station but no action was been taken till press time.
