Catholic Church of Anatongre village under Kiphire district was reportedly pulled down by some villagers on July 9 at around 4.30 p.m., in an alleged opposition to the newly formed catholic community in the area. Perturbed by the incident, the St. Peter’s Parish Council (SPPC) Kiphire, in a press statement issued Sunday, strongly condemned the act and said such action would upset “religious tolerance and Christian spirit of Nagaland.” The statement said that the incident has brought suffering to members of the catholic community and their fundamental right to religion and worship. Meanwhile, the SPPC Kiphire informed that the matter has been forwarded to the district administration and the victims of the incident were awaiting justice.
