Resentment brews after dismantling of makeshift church in Tripura

Agartala, Oct 5 (UNI) A group of tribals dismantled the makeshift prayer hall of Christian believers in Kamlai village of Amarpur in Gomati district of Tripura on Sunday which has gone viral on social media triggering resentment across the state during the celebration of Durga puja.
According to a local report, the prayer hall was made inside the ‘holy boundary’ demarcated during Ker Puja (a major religious festival of Hindu tribes) in August. The police held a peace meeting on Monday in the village with the members of both communities and Christians agreed not to proceed further with the prayer in the location.
However, Jyotish Jamatia, Secretary of Jamatia Hoda – the apex body of the Hindu Jamatia community denied the charge of dismantling the Christian prayer camp and clarified the structure was pulled down after a mutual understanding between the local Christian and Hindu communities in presence of police.
