On 14 June in Gayatri Nagar, Katni, Hindu extremists manhandled Christians and tore up Bibles. About 15 extremists from the Bajrang Dal attacked the Pastor and few believers from Brethren church when they were coming out from one believer’s house after a prayer.

The extremists surrounded them, started to verbally abuse them for their faith in Christ and pushed them around. Thereafter, the extremists snatched their bags, took out the Bibles and tore it up threatening them “not to pray again in the area in the future.”

The Christians, however, did not file a police complaint against the attackers.
