madhya pradeshMadhya Pradesh, March 24, 2014: Hindu extremists charge the religious leaders, “guilty” of watching a movie about Jesus with a group of Christians. The police arrest them without checking veracity of the allegations. Brother Sonjith and Brother Simson, on 22 March in the city of Moraine were detained on charges by a group of Hindu fundamentalists.

The two Pentecostal leaders had organized the vision of a film about Jesus along with some Christians, in the house of one of the faithful. On being made aware of the projection, some extremists filed a complaint to the police, claiming that Christians were forcibly converting Hindus.

The police arrived on the scene and arrested the pastors. After being interrogated for two hours and having proved their innocence, the officers released them. “ The zealous pro – Hindu law enforcement agencies waste no time in arresting innocent Christians, taking them from the intimacy of a private home, without any evidence. Less than a month before the general election, we are concerned about the Christian community in Madhya Pradesh and other states led by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)”, Sajan George of the Global Council of Indian Christians said.
