54 year old Pastor found dead near Madurai *HP: RSS activists threaten an Agape worker to leave his residence

Tamil Nadu, June 03, 2012: A 54-year-old pastor from Chennai was found dead with his head smashed with a boulder on the four-lane road near here today. Pastor Wilson was on his way to Madurai from Tuticorin on a two-wheeler when he was attacked by unidentified men. Some materials including tracts in his bag was found scattered near the body. His two-wheeler was found 150 feet from where the body was found.

Police has concluded that the pastor would have resisted the attempts to rob him and tried to escape on foot. But the gang would have chased him and killed him,. Prima facie, it seems like an incident of robbery, but he can be a victim of religious hatred or it can be anything. Until further investigations are carried out, we will not know.

GCIC has reported on 21.03.2012, a team of 15 believers led by Evangelist Jesudoss from Kandanur along with believers went in a van fitted with a megaphone to preach the gospel in Paganeri in Shivagangai District of Tamil Nadu. A group of about 100 BJP workers led by A. Raja and his friend Chidambaram objected to their preaching and attacked them and burnt the Bibles and the tracts and also forcibly snatched the van key from them. They then also destroyed their megaphone. Immediately after this incident the pastor along with some of the believers went to the Paganeri Police Station and lodged a complaint against the BJP workers. But the police did not take any action.

May God rest his spirit in peace. Jesus said: Mark 13:13 All men will hate you because of Me, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. John 15:21 They will treat you this way because of My Name, for they do not know the One who sent Me. John 15:18 If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. Matthew 24:9 “Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of Me. John 7:7 The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I testify that what it does is evil. John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” 1 John 3:1 How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 1 John 3:13 Do not be surprised, my brothers, if the world hates you.

About 15 minutes later police men arrived at the scene and took Mr. Topno, two women and another male believer with them into police custody.

The police did not register any case against them but threatened Mr. Topno to vacate his home within two days and leave from the locality. The police also confiscated Mr.  Topno’s AGAPE ministries I-Card and told him he could collect it after he vacates from his present residence.

When enquiring with the police as to the reasons behind Mr. Topno’s mistreatment, it was found that the police suspected Mr. Topno to be a smuggler, who indulged in forcefully converting the locals and since they didn’t want any trouble to stir up in the area, they had asked him to leave for his own good.
