BJP MLA's son attacked Pastor in Delhi

A mob of about 150 led by a BJP MLA’s son attacked a pastor and church in Qutabgarh in East West Delhi August 23, it was informed today.

The All India Christian Council said one Biju, son of one Chanram, a Bharatiya Janta Party MLA led a crowd, believed to be members of Hindutva fanatics in attacking Pastor Isaac Jaal.

The pastor was returning home after conducting a Sunday prayer service in the church, the AICC said. The said Biju and the crowd came with ‘lethal sticks’ and “trisuls” (Hindu tridents).

The mob assaulted Pastor Isaac and also threatened him with dire consequences if he continued to conduct prayer meetings in the church. The pastor suffered internal injuries.

The police came later but did not take him to the hospital for medical treatment or even for examination.

Rev. Dr. Abraham Sahu, Delhi NCR Chapter President of All India Christian Council reported the matter to the local police and appealed for the safety and protection of the pastor and church members. A written complaint to the local police was given but no First Information Report (FIR) was registered and no action taken, AICC said.

A team of AICC members said to be way to meet Pastor Isaac and then to the police authorities to appeal for the registration of the complaint and take action against the criminals.

“The fear is being spread among Christian minorities across the nation including national capital by the organized attacks by the Hindutva fundamentalists.

The law enforcement authorities must ensure the freedom of rights, equality and protection must be provided to all communities, particularly the Christian minorities who have been targeted currently by the fanatic groups,” the AICC said.
