Indian bishops call for peace in Assam

Catholic World News - July 27, 2012

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India (CBCI) is appealing for peace in Assam, the eastern province in which fighting has flared between Christian tribals and Muslim settlers.

“The Catholic Bishops' Conference of India is deeply pained at the violent clashes taking place in Lower Assam,” said CBCI Secretary General Archbishop Albert D'Souza. “It is disheartening to hear that three districts of Assam are undergoing ethnic violence that has lead to loss of 40 deaths. The humanitarian crisis and the mindless violence have shattered the lives of many. The Church while expressing heartfelt condolences to the families of the deceased assure solidarity with those displaced and suffering due to the clashes.”
