A mob of Hindutva extremists forcefully entered a church at night, which was under-construction in Tiruppur, Tamil Nadu. The mob destroyed the vehicles parked in the compound and verbally abused the Christians who were keeping guard at the church. They also spoke derogatorily about Christianity, hurting the victims’ religious sentiments.

The harassment has been ongoing for the past five years now. The pastor and his family were forcefully thrown out of the Church premises, following which they pursued the matter in court.
