The Church Leaders of North East India under the ages of United Christian Forum of NEI today expressed their deep shock and concern as two senior Church elders from Meghalaya belonging to the Presbyterian Church of India were allegedly manhandled and falsely accused of initiating conversion when they visited Bihar at the invitation of the local Church there for post-Easter celebrations among the faithful.

The latest information issued by the SP East Khasi Hills District through a press release states that they are safe and will be given police protection as they head back home, UCFNEI spokesperson Allen Brooks said in a statement.

In another development, the Church Leaders expressed their deep pain and sorrow at the demolition of 3 Churches in East Manipur District immediately after Easter following the vacation of the operation of the interim status quo order earlier issued by the Honorable High Court of Manipur.

Under these circumstances, UNCFNEI appealed to all its faithful to continue to pray for peace and harmony while standing united, Brooks said.
