On 13th January 2019, Seven Christians were abused, physically attacked by the hindutva extremists when they distributed Gospel tracts in Vellichanthy, Kanyakumari District of Tamil Nadu.

Seven Christians were distributing the gospel tracts and they have been abused and physically attacked and warned them to go back and they would be killed if they come back the place.

They have been questioned by the hindutva extremists that why are you converting our people, this is a hindu majority area and who gave you permission to come here and share the gospel.

When one of the Christian man addressed his attacker as “my brother,” the perpetrators took offense and responded and said “if you are my brother, then you are a Hindu.” They then forcefully applied the holy ash and saffron powder on their foreheads. Pastor gave a complaint to the police station.
