Frequent threats from Policemen not to conduct the prayer meeting at Keni Gabitwada Village, Karwar, Karnataka.

On 5th November 2017, Two policemen came to the church during the prayer meeting and informed the Christians to stop the prayer meetings and report to the police station as they have received complaints from the neighbors. They have been conducting the prayer meeting here for past 10 years now.

Two months back also the policemen came and threatened the Christians not to conduct the prayer meetings. And also warned them not to invite new people for the prayer meetings and if they do then they have to face with dire consequences.In the both instances, whenever police violated the fundamental right of Christians they did not share the copy of the complaint with Christians.
