NEW DELHI – Emboldened by the success of their nefarious design to harass Muslim worshippers in the city, rightwing Hindutva elements in Gurugram targeted another minority community, Christians. A group of miscreants barged into a church in Pataudi and disrupted special Christmas prayers on Friday evening.

According to a PTI report, Hindutva goons raising slogans like ‘Jai Shree Ram’ and ‘Bharat Mata ki Jai’, forced their way into a church premises in Haryana’s Pataudi on Friday evening and thwarted Christmas festivities.

Videos of the episode doing rounds on social media show how the intruding mob had their way pushing choir members down the stage snatching the microphones from their hands.

When asked about the incident, Pataudi station house officer (SHO) Amit Kumar said the police did not receive any complaints.

The news agency quoted a local pastor as saying, “It was scary as we had women and children around in the church. The nuisance is increasing with each passing day. It’s an infringement of our right to pray and religion.”

The Hindutva hate-brigade, who disrupted the Friday namaz threatening Muslim worshippers against offering namaz at open spaces, not even at designated sites, seem to have managed the Chief Minister to come out in their favour. Khattar told the state assembly on Tuesday, “No member of any community should hold religious prayers in public places.”
