Christian missionary meet attacked

Alleged right wing activists attacked a meeting of a Christian missionary outfit in Uttar Pradesh’s Maharajganj district. Several people were injured.

According to police sources here, a few dozen right wing workers attacked the meeting being held at Belwa Ghat in the district on Wednesday, alleging that the missionary people were engaged in conversion.

Sources said the attackers were armed with sticks and did not spare even women and children.

A case was registered against a former district chief of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad  and some others after a complaint was lodged by Peter Masih, organiser of the religious meet.

Security personnel have been deployed at the village, police said. Earlier too, right wing activists targeted such meetings in different parts of the state.

They have warned that they will continue to use force to thwart what they allege is conversion of Hindus into Christians by luring them with money and jobs.
