Indian prelate denounces government cover-up of persecution

Catholic World News - September 07, 2011

The leading prelate in the southwestern Indian state of Karnataka has denounced a state government report on the persecution of Christians.

“The report actually denied that there were any attacks at all,” said Archbishop Bernard Moras of Bangalore. “Meanwhile there are dozens of witnesses who confirm this. Moreover, how could one even think of hiding the truth about 223 acts of violence against Christians in all 29 districts of Karnataka?”

“Another falsehood is the accusation that they were concocted by the Christians themselves, or caused by conversion to Catholicism and by the derogatory opinions expressed against the Hindu religion,” he added. In the report there is no indication of how the government intends to combat these organized groups responsible for the attacks against Christians, nor is it endeavoring to identify those responsible.”
