The believers are stopped from going to Church and forcing them to return to home by the police.

The other pastors those who have not been arrested are threatened. And they are not being allowed to conduct service in the Church.

These incidents are being instigated by false propaganda of certain media houses like Zee News and daily Hindi newspaper Dainik Jagran. According to them these pastors are luring the Hindus by performing miracles and by offering some allurements. Whereas the villagers have confessed

on news channels that they have accepted Jesus because their prayers are being heard and they are cured from their diseases and there have started enjoying the life better.
