Unidentified Miscreants vandalized St. Mary’s church and destroy the statue of infant Jesus in Mysuru’s Periyapatna 

Karnataka: The police reported that on Tuesday, unidentified individuals vandalized a church in Mysuru, Karnataka. Additionally, they harmed the church’s statue of Baby Jesus.

St. Mary’s church at Mysuru in Karnataka has been vandalized by unknown people, two days after Christmas.

The damage within the church premises was encountered by one of the church staff around 6 pm, after which he immediately informed the priest.

According to the police,  the assailants had broken the back door to enter the church. Alongside, the police is also looking into the CCTV footages of various locations within the church premises in order to track the accused.

“We are scouting for clues from the CCTV footage recorded by nearby cameras. Prima Facie looks like it is theft, as they have made away with money, and also with one collection box that was placed outside the church,” said Seema Latkar, Superintendent of Police, Mysuru.

In the recent months, a number of churches and Christian missionaries have come under fire from various religious and political organisations over claims of forced religious conversion.

A Christmas programme was attacked last Friday in Uttarakhand’s Uttarakashi by a mob of individuals armed with sticks under the pretence that forced conversions were taking place there.

In Uttar Pradesh, two people were arrested on Monday for allegedly converting people to Christianity.

Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai had stated last year that the state was “seriously contemplating” enacting a similar law in light of the fact that some BJP-ruled states, such as Uttar Pradesh, already have laws to prohibit coercive religious conversions.
