On 7th September 2012 Pastor John was distributing Christian literature in Birmawal village when about 25 RSS and Bajranga Dal activists pounced upon him and stopped him from distributing the Christian tracts.

They also began abusing and cursing him and levelling allegations against him that he was converting Hindus to Christianity. Though they were determined to physically assault him, something changed their minds and they took him to the Birmawal Police Station complaining that he was criticizing Hindu religion and Hindu religious practices, and also forcing them to drink cow’s blood etc(Source).
