On 8th July 2018, Hindutva extremists disrupted the prayer meeting, beaten up Pastor’s wife and Christians in Sathyamangalam Taluk,Erode, Tamil Nadu.

Few hindtuva extremists barged in to the prayer meeting and disrupted the meeting. Pastor was not present but Pastor’s wife and few Christians were gathered for the prayer meeting.

Hindutva extremists were on drunk. They assaulted Christians. Hindutva extremists hit pastor’s wife stomach and she was hurt extremely badly; and also they had beaten up the Christians. When Pastor came home back, hindutva extremists surrounded the house and were letting Pastor out when he wanted to go to police station.

Somehow a complaint was submitted at the Bhavanisagar Police Station. Injured Christians had to be admitted in Coimbatore government hospital since local Sathyamangalam government hospitals refused treatment.
