Gurugram: Right-wing activists disrupt Christmas prayers, chant ‘Jai Shri Ram’ | Gurgaon News – Times of India

GURUGRAM: A group of men allegedly disrupted prayers at a church in Gurugram‘s Pataudi on the eve of Christmas.
The group, claiming to be right-wing activists, barged into the premises of the church and disrupted the proceedings.
Police, however, said they had not received any complaint.
The video shows some men entering the church premises on Friday evening and raising slogans ‘ Jai Shri Ram‘ and ‘ Bharat Mata Ki Jai‘.
They are seen allegedly pushing the choir members down the stage and snatching the mike as well.
The incident comes at a time when offering namaz in certain open spaces in Gurugram has kicked up a controversy.
A local pastor said, “It was scary as we had women and children around in the church. The nuisance is increasing with each passing day. It’s an infringement of our right to pray and religion.”
Pataudi station house officer Amit Kumar said the police did not receive any complaint so far.
The local administration is yet to respond.
