India: bishop blasts corruption but questions activist’s tactics
Catholic World News - August 25, 2011
An Indian prelate who once served as undersecretary of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue has denounced corruption in Indian society but questioned the tactics of Anna Hazare, the activist who is inspiring the nation’s burgeoning anti-corruption movement.
“In India, we are victims of pervasive corruption, from the highest echelons of politics up to the citizens,” says Bishop Felix Machado of Vasai. “Everyone is involved. Even the person who pays a bribe is complicit in corruption. It is a very serious problem and people are tired of this.”
