Hindu idol installed in a church in Andhra Pradesh, India: Police Refuse to Intervene

Hindu extremists allegedly from the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh damaged a church building and installed an idol of the Hindu god Hanuman inside it on May 23, 2010 in Tadipatri, Anatapur, Andhra Pradesh.

Extremists from the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (World Hindu Council) attacked India Pentecostal Church’s Holy Spirit Prayer House, which was under construction.  Pastor Venugopal  approached Tadipatri police, but officers refused to help him. After local Christian leaders’ intervention, police questioned the attackers.  Area Christian leaders maintained that Pastor Reddy had acquired government permission to build the church building.
