Church vandalised in Haryana's village; cross replaced with Hanuman idol
Ever since a change in the political scene in the country, many negative incidents along with positives have been happening. While right and wrong are just a matter of perspective, to dishonor someone's God can, in no light, be deemed right under any circumstances. This topic needs to be raised after an under- construction church, in a Hindu majority village was vandalized on Saturday.

The incident took place in Hisar's Kaimri village and the attack on the place was made by locals, who allegedly placed a Hanuman idol in the place of the cross in the church. The locals, who took part in the entire incident claimed that the place was not allotted to build a church, rather it was a residential area. The pastor of the church had some other version of the same incident.

Pastor, Subhash Chand, as was reported by indianexpress.com, said that he has been receiving some threatening calls from Bajrang Dal activist for the past one month. He is assuming that they can be behind the attack. The locals of the area said that they were not aware that the building was meant to be a church and only came to know of it when they saw the spire been put up.

Some of the residents also claimed, ''We don't have a problem if Subhash Chand stays here. But we don't want him to propagate his religion," The residents had objected initially, but when the building was being constructed in spite of objections, the attack took place and a saffron flag was placed in it.

A case has been filed against the miscreants.
