(Worthy News)-- Under pressure from Hindu extremists, local officials kept a church from meeting on Good Friday (April 3) in India's Uttar Pradesh state and ordered the pastor to vacate the property, a church leader told Morning Star News.

Pastor Daniel Singh of Salvation for Asia Church in Swar, near Rampur, told Morning Star News his two-year lease of the land allowed him to build a worship site, but Hindu extremists in the northern state have been threatening to burn his church building if he does not leave the property.

"The extremists summoned me one night to one of their meetings, and they threatened to burn up the church if we do not empty the land," Pastor Singh said. "The BJP [Bharatiya Janata Party] district president also threatened to terminate the job of one church member if he continues to come to our worship meetings." --[wp_colorbox_media url="http://morningstarnews.org/2015/04/hindu-extremists-block-good-friday-service-beat-christians-in-uttar-pradesh-india/" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]
