Karnataka Police have arrested a pastor while trying to convert a family into Christianity in the Shivamogga district. According to police, the accused pastor has forced a family to convert to Christianity in the pretext of curing their three-year-old child of disease.
As per police record, the three-year-old child of a resident of Bommanakatte suffered from a disease and though the family approached many doctors, they could not find a solution. Taking advantage of this fact, the pastor told the family members that religious conversion from Hindu religion to Christianity is the only solution for their problem.
As per report, the accused also allegedly asked the family to remove all images of Hindu gods from their home and told them to carry out prayers for Jesus Christ. He had also given them religious books and asked them to follow Christianity, according to police.
Knowing what is happening, the locals complained about this to the nearby police station. Following this, the police took Madhu to custody on charges of forceful conversions and they have also booked him under illegal construction of a building in Bommanakatte area.
