Bishops condemn terrorist attack in India

Catholic World News - September 08, 2011

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India has condemned a terrorist attack outside the Delhi High Court. A bomb in a briefcase killed 11 and injured 74, according to a CNN report.

“We are deeply pained at the heinous act of terror which has no meaning in any form but exposes the hollowness of the perpetrators who are anti-national and a great threat to society,” the bishops said in their statement. “Each human life is a gift of God and we must do everything to protect it. Those who forcefully take the lives of innocent people work against the divine plan and prove themselves as enemies of a peaceful social order.”

“We call upon those who indulge in violence to give up the path of destruction and follow the path that leads to unity and peace in society,” the bishops continued. “We urge the government of India to do its best to nab the culprits behind the bomb blast and bring them to justice. We also urge the civil society to be more vigilant at all times and assist the administration in doing away with terrorism in our country.”
