May 25, 2018 

At approximately 04:30 p.m., the head of the Rural Development Society (RDS) and the secretary of the area kovil arrived at a congregant’s home and demanded the Christians stop their construction activities and claimed that they would not be allowed to build a church. The pastor purchased the land under question 02 and a half years ago and had only built a temporary shed and a fence on the premises. He is in the process of obtaining approvals to build a church.
