Pastor Ronald Sinclaire from Dewas, Madhya Pradesh and his congregation, were attacked by a mob allegedly led by members of the local RSS(Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) unit today evening as the Church was gathered for their Sunday worship as usual. The attackers pushed the Church members around and verbally abused the Pastor, pushing him around as well. Police and media personnel accompanied the attackers. The police took the Pastor and congregation into custody and took them to Kotwali police station in Dewas for questioning. Other local pastors, who had gone to the Sacred Heart School (where the Church normally meets) after hearing the news, were also attacked by fanatics. After midnight the police finally let the congregation members, about 40 people, go. The police have subsequently released Pastor Sinclaire too, about 20 minutes ago, but have asked for his Church membership list. Many people had called Dewas police during this time. We are grateful to all of them. It looked like the Pastor will have to spend the night in the lockup, but God miraculously intervened. No case has been filed till latest information.
