False accusation again, Can a man convert an other man ?  Conversion is a personal conviction, it happens in your heart.

On 4th November 2018 in Fatehpur. Religious fanatics attacked Pastor Sunil’s house with accusation of conversion. There was a fellowship going on there in the morning, with people from the neighborhood who started to come to his house of their own accord for prayer and deliverance. The police also later came and questioned everyone (around 40 new believers) and all of them testified of life change and their own choice to come there for prayers. 2 doctors from our hospital and my son was there also. They couldn’t find any conversion issue there. Then they asked to see the documents of the organization. All that was in good order and Sunil’s organisation is a registered religious trust so they can hold church at their house. So finally the police concluded that since they were holding the prayer without permission, that was wrong. Higher authorities whom Sunil knew and contacted also intervened. The bajrang Dal didn’t succeed.
But today morning the fanatic group has filed another FIR in local police Station against Pastor Sunil.
Please continue to pray for him so that he will not be arrested because it is a festival time and if he gets arrested he will have to be in jail for 4 or 5 days. Please pray that the protection to exercise the freedom of conscience and belief, which is a basic fundamental right of a citizen of India.
