Buxar: Residents of Parmanpur
village in Bihar’s Buxar district have alleged that Christian
missionaries lure them to convert and threaten them with violence if
they don’t obey.

Anjoriya
Devi’s husband died death eight years ago and she alleges he was beaten
to death by goons hired by missionaries. “They beat up my husband when
he refused to convert to Christianity. They have threatened me too,”
alleges Anjoriya.

Mithilesh
Kumar, another resident of the village, alleges the missionaries tried
to lure him by offering him a job. “They said if I remain a Hindu, I
will remain unemployed and poor. They said I would have money and a job
if I converted to Christianity,” he alleges.

Police
in the village say they have arrested two persons after investigating
complaints. “Investigations confirm there have been instances of
conversion by intimidation. We have arrested two persons,” said Koran
Sahay, officer in charge of the local Kuran Sarai police station.

Missionaries
in the village reject the allegations and claim they are being framed.
“We have done no such thing. We are victims of a conspiracy,” said
Shyamshun Dayal Ishai, a missionary accused of intimidation.
