A prayer convention was disrupted by Hindutva activists at Pipariya village, Hoshangabad, Madhya Pradesh.

On March 15, 2016, nearly 1000 Christians including pastors had gathered at the convention, when these activists came and accused the participants of carrying out religious conversions through allurement. They forcibly removed the tent which had been erected for the meeting and tried to chase away the Christians.

The convention organizers chose not to file a complaint with the police.Instead, they changed the location to Bhopal for the remaining part of the convention.
