  Intimidation, Threats and Harassment

On February 7, 2015 in Barangpet Village, Hyderabad, 7 Hindu fundamentalists came and threatened Pastor Lata* and her husband forcing them to close the Shalom Church of the Victory Ministries. They shouted saying that the Church land does not belong to them. The Pastor had bought the land and have been working in the village since 2002. The fundamentalists had earlier come on January 26, 2015 after which the pastor had gone to report the incident at Meerpet Police Station. They went back yesterday too, but Police refused to file the report on both occasions.
