  Complicity of Authorities, Intimidation, Threats and Harassment

On 18.12.2016, when a Pastor who runs a small church in a rented accommodation with 20 members at Kotiveerampalayan area in Sathyamangalam, was on his way to open the church for Sunday Worship service, the Sub-inspector of the Sathyamanglam police station met them at the building premises where the church is and told them that they cannot continue church services there without the permission of district authorities.

The owner of the property, where the church services are happening, had no problem with the Sunday worship services being carried out.

This is the third incident that the Pastor has been asked by police personnel (at the behest of a hindutva activist group) to stop church services at various locations in Sathyamangalam.
