On 5th May 2018, Police questioned the Pastor for approval documents to conduct prayer on the basis of complaint by hindutva extremists in Puliampatti,Sathyamangalam, Erode, Tamil Nadu.

Pastor has been conducting the prayers in his rented place for the last 16 years. Police called up the pastor and ask the approval documents to run the church. Pastor and the congregation members told to Sub Inspector that it is a house where family and friends gather to worship. Hence the complaint given by hindutva extremists to create a communal disharmony.

But SI did not accept their explanation though they produced the copy of Madurai High Court order and said that he needs only approval from local body. The copy of complaint submitted by Hindutva extremists was circulated in WhatsApp.
