An incident occurred on 26.11.2016 at Gummidipoondi Taluk, Tiruvalluvar district, Tamil Nadu.

A Christian had been conducting some prayers in a hall in the 2nd floor above his residence in the aforementioned Taluk for some Christian friends and relatives for the last four months.

On Saturday, November 26, 2016 a violent group of fanatics stood outside his residence and demanded that the prayers be stopped and also falsely accused them of bringing outsiders to the area and alluring them to convert to Christianity by offering them money.

The police of the Gummidipoondi town police station arrived at the scene and the two sides were asked to explain their position to the Inspector.

The Inspector spoke in favor of Christians and advised the opposite side to refrain from causing problems. However, the opposite side disagreed with the police inspector and stated that they would continue to challenge the conducting of the prayers.
