Compass Direct : INDIA - FOUR WOMEN ACCUSED OF ‘FORCED’ CONVERSION: "FOUR WOMEN ACCUSED OF ‘FORCED’ CONVERSION
Compromise agreement forestalls charges; school officials in neighboring state attacked.

August 11 (Compass Direct News) – Hindu extremists have threatened four Christian women accused of “forced” conversion in Tamil Nadu state, while two priests of a Catholic high school in neighboring Karnataka state have been attacked. Albert Lael, organizing secretary of the All India Christian Council, told Compass that police on August 5 led a team of four women from the Good Shepherd Community Church in Erode district of Tamil Nadu to reach a compromise agreement with the person who had accused them of forced conversion. The women had shown a Christian film to about 150 people without incident. Under the agreement, the women are not to preach Christ to anyone who objects or expresses unwillingness to listen. That same week, in Hebbagodi, near Karnataka’s capital of Bangalore, Father Soby Thomas, vice principal of St. Francis de Sales High School, and school administrator Father Vinod Kanat were attacked on July 25. The two priests were apparently attacked with cricket bats by a group of about 20 people outside the hostel for poor students at Kammasandra."
