Christians fear satanic youth activity in Indian city

Catholic World News - July 01, 2013

Catholic clergy and lay leaders have joined Protestant clergy in expressing alarm about reports that up to 5,000 youth in Kohima, capital of the largely Christian state of Nagaland, are involved in Satanic worship.

“We are shocked to learn about this news,” said Father Charles Irudayam, secretary of the justice and peace commission of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India. “Satanism is not, however, a widespread phenomenon in India. Those groups in the northeast are an alarm bell. The Catholic Church and other Christian communities intend to work hard to deepen and strengthen faith in children and young people through pastoral programs of formation.”

The Fides news agency reported that members of the Nagaland Catholic Women’s Association have “taken to the streets” in an effort to “save their children.”
