Buddhist monk attempts to intimidate Christians

October 07, 2018 

While the Sunday worship service was ongoing, at approximately 10 a.m., a Buddhist monk and 05 other individuals from a neighbouring town, arrived at the church premises and demanded to know if the church was registered. They also demanded the pastor produce evidence of the church’s registration. The Buddhist monk demanded the pastor bring his registration documents to his temple in Pannala the following Wednesday and threatened to return if the pastor refused to comply. The pastor asked the monk to make his request in writing but was refused.
