Christian missionaries were confronted by angry locals in Maharashtra’s Palghar district for reportedly disrespecting Hindu gods.
As per a video shared on social media by “No Conversion”, angry locals can be heard confronting the Christian missionaries in presence of the police.
The locals accuse the preachers of disrespecting the Hindu gods by calling Lord Hanuman a monkey and Lord Ganesha an elephant.
This was purportedly denied by the missionaries which only further angered the locals who stressed that they have eyewitnesses to prove the charges. The locals also questioned why the preachers cannot respect all religions.
This incident appears to have happened following a programme organised by the missionaries, in which they wanted to shower their followers with the blessings of Jesus.
This is the second such controversial activity reported from Maharashtra in recent days. Few days ago it was reported that a Christian-run-school in Mumbai’s Virar East area was involved in forcibly converting its students to Christianity.
Similar disrespect towards Hinduism has also been seen in Tamil Nadu wherein controversial preacher Mohan Lazarus has been heard calling temples as Satan strongholds.
