The police have registered the case against the petitioner based on the complaint of Smt. Madhura wherein allegations are made against the petitioner. The petitioner while trying to propagate their religious beliefs told the complainant that Yesu Christa can give protection against future calamity like tsunami if he is believed and if they believe they get all types of peace of mind and no other religion can provide the same.
