Hindu extremists disrupted a Christmas service and threatened to kill a pastor if he continues to conduct worship meetings in the area in Shyampur, Siddharthnagar.
It was reported that the extremists barged into the Christmas programme of Indian Evangelical Mission Church and they threatened to kill him, beat up the believers and seized his land if he continues to conduct worship meeting and Christian activities in the area.
The same people had earlier threatened to harm the Pastor in the past for his faith in Christ. The Christians submitted a police complaint against the assailant on the next day. “The police response was very slow as they turned up at the church only on 11 January” reported area Church leader.
