A Pentecostal convention scheduled to begin in Kakarkuva village of Dhar on Monday was called off after the district administration cancelled permission late on Sunday saying the event could become a law and order issue.
The sub-divisional magistrate had on April 15 given permission for a three-day Atimiya Jagruti Sabha, Satsang and prayers asking the organizer to conduct activities between 8 am and 11 pm. The other conditions were not to use loudspeakers and avoid raising “objectionable slogans”.
“We were told at the last moment that the permission stands cancelled. Many participants from other places have already come. We had spent a lot on the event,” pastor Bharat Singh Mehda told The Indian Express.
