Cardinal calls upon activist to end hunger strike

Catholic World News - August 26, 2011

The president of the Indian bishops’ conference has called upon activist Anna Hazare to end his hunger strike against endemic corruption.

“I’m appealing, and the Church has appealed, to Anna Hazare to call off his hunger strike, because we know that only God is the giver of life; only God can take away life,” said Cardinal Oswald Gracias of Mumbai. “I mentioned to Anna Hazare that you have succeeded in bringing corruption to center stage, and making everybody realize, and also the government, that this matter has to be addressed urgently and seriously…but we also have the constitution to follow.”
