Small church that gathers under a shed being forced to shut down

  Complicity of Authorities, Intimidation, Threats and Harassment


Pastor of a small church in Baguthampalayam village, Satyamangalam tehsil, Erode dt. of Tamil Nadu since 2013 has been conducting prayers in a small shed, which does not have power supply and does not even have cement flooring, but merely mats spread across leveled ground.

They have had opposition in the past but were able to continue prayers due to the intervention of the Inspector of the Bhavanisagar police station. That inspector was recently transferred, following which the S.I. came under tremendous pressure from right wing groups to put pressure on the Pastor to stop their prayers in the shed pending permission from the collector.
