Uttar Pradesh: Police detains one Ramswaroop Mishra for organizing Christian Missionary event in Bakewar

The agenda of the event was 'Illumination of the Invisible Good' and Ramswarup Mishra was the speaker of the meet. He is apparently a retired officer of the Navy.

Etawah Police has detained one Ramswarup Mishra for organizing a Christian missionary event in Uttar Pradesh without any official permission for a religious event, officials informed a person on social media who brought it to their attention. They also said that Bakewar Police, which detained him, warned him not to engage in such activities again.

The pamphlet shared by Twitterati @ShaileshTewarie showed that the event was organized by one ‘Mitra Susamachar Prarthna Dal’ of ‘Naya Jivan Samiti Matirampur’, which can be roughly translated to ‘Friends Good News Prayer Group’ of ”New Life Society’.
