An independent church was barged into forcefully by around 15-20 religious fanatics who damaged the church property and beat up the pastor’s wife in Secunderabad. This happened in the late evening hours. It is reported that the attackers are living in the neighborhood, have been creating problems for the church and have been threatening to remove the church from the area. They have been obstructing church members from coming to church and have been alleging that the pastor and his wife are carrying out religious conversion work.
The attackers have subsequently filed a false complaint against the Pastor in order to intimidate him.
