According to the Kashmir Media Service, the incident, which took place on the afternoon of November 2, was led by two Hindu extremists, Rajni Kant Devgn and Nilambri Sahoonami. According to reports, the attackers burned copies of the Bible and warned the priests to stop worshiping in the village.
It is also reported that two pastors, Sasharth Manak Puri and Kaiser Manak Puri, were dragged from a house to a place where a religious meeting was taking place. The mob had severely beaten the clergy.
According to media reports, the Hindu mob asked the priests to convert to Hinduism and threatened them with dire consequences if they did not stop worshiping in the village.
The persecution of Christians in India has begun at a rapid pace. Other extremist Hindu parties, including Vishwa Hindu Parishad, Bajrang Dal, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Singh, have accused Christian preachers or missionaries of forcing Hindus to convert to Christianity by offering them money and other privileges. Christians categorically deny this allegation.
Recent extremist incidents in the four Indian states of Kerala, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Orissa have intensified the forcible conversion of Christians to Hinduism, which was halted for some time in the past.
