  Intimidation, Threats and Harassment


At Jagjitpur Village in Haridwar, Uttarakhand, Church members were verbally abused and were attempted to be manhandled by Hidutva activists. After the Sunday worship service, when the church members were leaving for home, sixty religious fanatics were waiting at the main entrance of the church and created a ruckus. They started shouting slogans against Christianity, verbally abused women and attempted to manhandled several men.

Subsequently, police arrived at the spot and took both the parties to local police station. At the police station, the activists accused the Christians of carrying out religious conversion work. However, after questioning both sides, the police ascertained that the allegations of forceful religious conversion were baseless.
