KARNATAKA, INDIA (ANS) -- Anti-Christian activists from two Hindu radical groups -- Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and Bajrang Dal -- attacked a Pastor and an elder of a church in Bangarpet in Kolar district of Karnataka on May 21 2007 for distributing gifts at a VBS (Vacation Bible School).

The extremists stated that by giving these gifts to the children they were converting them to Christianity.

The Hindu activists attacked on the last day of the children program. They destroyed the gifts and beat up the Pastor who had traveled from Bangalore and elder of the church named Rajashekhar under the allegation that they were converting children through their programs.

Even though they were the victims, a complaint was filed against the pastor and the elder but they were later released.
