Posters and banners of church meeting in Bhilai Charoda of Durg district, Chhattisgarh, were torn by members of Bajrang Dal and Dharma Jagran Manch on Nov. 16.

According to Evangelical Fellowship India, the New Life AG Church, Indian Pentecostal Church and Gap Foundation had organized a three day Good News Festival from Nov. 16 to 18 at the Railway Ground. Permissions were granted by the respective authorities. However, the Bajrang Dal and Dharma Jagran opposed over the program.

The Hindutva activists raised concerns over erecting posters and banners for the church meeting, alleging that conversions may take place in the meeting.

The activists allegedly tore down and burned the church posters. The situation worsened and eventually the police ordered that the meetings be brought to an end with immediate effect.
