(BosNewsLife) – The Madras High Court in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu has ordered police to seize the travel documents of Canadian evangelists D. Ron Watts and his wife Dorothy Mary Watts in an effort to prosecute them and to force the couple to leave India , BosNewsLife established Tuesday, July 12. The Watts, who are also senior leaders of the growing Seventh Day Adventists domination in India , have been criticized by local authorities and hard line Hindu groups for converting people from Hinduism to Christianity. India , with a population of 1 billion people, currently has an estimated Seventh-day Adventist Church membership of 350,000 and that number is rapidly increasing, church officials say. However the Rastriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), a nationalist Hindu party, claim Watts was involved in converting at least one million people.In what is seen as a controversial move, the Madras High Court apparently agrees that these activities violated Indian regulations for foreigners. “The Superintendent of Police [in] Krishnagiri District” must therefore “execute the Leave the Country Notice of the Ministry of Home affairs, government of India,” the High Court said, a reference to possible expulsion after the prosecution process.
