  Complicity of Authorities, Intimidation, Threats and Harassment


A Christian woman runs a house church at Kushaiguda in Hyderabad, Telangana. A mob of 40 religious extremists barged into a prayer service, disrupted the prayers and started shouting slogans like “Jai Shri Ram”. They also warned the Christians to stop the prayer services. Following the incident, the Christian woman complained to the police about the incident, but the police didn’t register an FIR against the assailants. The police instead forced the Christians to enter into a compromise with their assailants and warned them not to conduct the prayers anymore. The police also took a letter of compromise from the woman.
