On 9 June in Periyapattana, Ramanathapuram district, Hindu extremists beat up a pastor after he prayed for a sick man.

The Pastor had gone to the house of one sick man to pray for him on the request of his wife and children.

However, the Hindu extremists opposed the prayer, massed up near the house of the sick man demanding that the Pastor should leave the village. Then they started pushing and beating him, threatening to kill him and burn his bike if he ever come and pray in the village again.
