  Complicity of Authorities, Damage to Property, Intimidation, Threats and Harassment, Physical assault

On June 26, 2016 during Sunday prayers at Unchahar, Rae Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh, religious fanatics entered forcefully, beat the believers including women with lathis, damaged the church badly, and locked them all inside.

Later, they were taken to the nearest police station, were made to stand in a queue and forced to bow before idols present within the Kotwali Police Station premises. Four of them were made to clean the ditches before being allowed to return to their homes after midnight. No complaint was registered against the attackers nor the Christians.

Unfortunately the newspaper reports were biased and twisted to make the victims appear like criminals, defaming the Christians and making false allegations against them of having carried out forceful religious conversions!
