Justice still lacking in Orissa, Catholic prelate reports

Catholic World News - February 08, 2010

Reconciliation cannot come to India's troubled Orissa state unless the Christian minority receives justice after a series of violent attacks, said the region's leading Catholic prelate. Archbishop Raphael Cheenath of Cuttack-Bhubaneshwar pointed out that over 50,000 people where driven from their homes by the violence that broke out in 2008, and most have not been able to return. Few of the ringleaders responsible for the anti-Christian pogroms have been prosecuted, he said, and authorities have shown little interest in the welfare of the refugees.
