On 28th February 2017, a marriage ceremony of a Christian girl with a non-Christian boy was disrupted by a group of Hindutva activists and false allegation of carrying out religious conversion of the boy was put on the priest, in Shivpuri district of Madhya Pradesh.

The groom persistently denied the charges saying that he was not being converted and even produced his wedding card as a proof that their wedding would also take place on 13th March 2017 in Indore according to his faith and rituals.

The Hindtuva activists did not allow the Church to continue with the ceremony. The activists complained to the police and a police team accompanied them to the church and the charges were found untrue.

The policemen stated that the incident was the outcome of some confusion and no case has been lodged.
