Buddhist monks oppose Christian worship activities

April 07, 2019 

At approximately 09:10 a.m., while the Sunday worship service was ongoing, 06 Buddhist monks and 50 villagers entered the premises and questioned the pastor’s religious worship activities. 03 policemen from the Morawaka Police then arrived at around 09:30 a.m. and questioned as to what was going on. The monks falsely accused the pastor of carrying out his worship services illegally and that they opposed it. The police asked to look at the pastor’s legal documents. A policeman dressed in civilian clothing then assaulted a congregant who tried to record the proceedings and then assaulted the congregant’s mother when she tried to intervene. The police told the pastor to report to the Morawaka Police Station later that day.
