Indian Christian Pastor severely beaten by Hindutva Outfit over rumors of conversions


Lucknow — Right-wing Hindutva militant outfit Bajrang Dal severely beaten a Christian pastor on Sunday over the rumors of conversions in the Kanpur city of north India’s Uttar Pradesh state.

According to Indian Express, the pastor Raju Prasad who neither tried converting anyone nor did he bother anyone with his preachings, but he was badly beaten and later handed over to the Police.

Police Officer Ranjeet Rai said that, “The preliminary investigation suggested that a woman had called the pastor and two women to offer prayer for her ailing mother at her house. She told us that her mother was recovering due to the prayer. She and the pastor denied conversion.”

However, Kanpur’s Bajrang Dal president Piyush Singh claimed that they were getting complaints for the past few days about the possible forceful conversions. So they reached the spot to teach the pastor a lesson and later handed him to the police.

Earlier, the militant outfit halted a Christian event in Moradabad of Uttar Pradesh over the rumors that mass-conversions would going to take place.

Despite Indian constitution provides freedom of practicing and preaching a religion, since 2014 Indian minorities are subjected to various complications under tacit eye of the authorities.
