Karnataka, May 27, 2012: Yelahanka New Town, Bangalore: Pastor Prakash, 42, who lives at Eeranyapalya in Bangalore, is in charge of a church named The Living Hope Church, in Yelahanka New Town, a satellite township of Bangalore. He caters to the spiritual needs of his congregation consisting of about 60 believers. He regularly conducts his Sunday worship service in a hall belonging to the CNR Vidya Mandir situated on the double Road of Yelahanka New Town.

A house visit and a prayer programme was scheduled to be held at the residence of a believer, one Sundarappa, on Saturday, 26-5-12, evening at 6.30 pm. Accordingly the pastor along with a believer, one Yesappa, 43, visited Sundarappa’s place and began the prayer meeting. About 20 believers were present at the prayer meeting. At about 7 pm, when the prayer meeting was in progress, about 10 Hindu radicals came in a car and a couple of scooters and interrupted the prayer meeting. They ordered them to stop the prayer meeting and attacked the pastor. They beat up the pastor and also tore his clothes and abused him using very foul language. They kept on alleging that he was fraudulently and forcibly trying to convert Hindus to Christianity. Then they dragged him to the Yelahanka New Town Police Station and handed him over to the police. The Police Inspector, Mr. Umesh, is investigating the case. The GCIC is in touch with both the pastor as well as the police. Please pray for the pastor.
