Villagers attempt to stage demonstration against church

September 22, 2019 

The pastor received phone calls from his congregants informing him that around 100 individuals were planning on holding a demonstration against the church. The pastor went to the Kalanwanchikudy Police Station and went with a few officers to the place where the demonstration was to take place. When the police started questioning those that had gathered, they became aggressive and the police had to call for reinforcements. The Acting Officer-in-Charge (OIC) arrived at the scene and instructed the pastor not to conduct his worship service owning to the situation. He told the pastor to meet the Kalawanchikudy Divisional Secretary (DS) the following day to resolve the issue
