  Complicity of Authorities, Intimidation, Threats and Harassment, Physical assault


On two occasions, dated 02.07.2016 and 09.07.2016, a Pastor in Patratu village, Ramgarh, Jharkhandh was intimidated and manhandled by the villagers alleging that he is carrying out religious conversion work.

When he approached the local police station to file a written complaint against the perpetrators, the police asked him to stop sharing the gospel since in their opinion, that was what had disrupted the peaceful environment of the village. The police stated that the villagers would be justified in ostracizing him since he was guilty of causing disharmony in the community. So saying, they did not register his complaint.

Also, the police conveyed to him that this was a social problem between the villagers, they would have to sort it out by talking with each other.
