Indian state expels Dutch missionary

Catholic World News - July 14, 2010

Father Jim Borst, a Dutch priest who has worked in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir since 1963, has been ordered to leave the state by the end of the month. “It is a great loss for me and the entire civil society of Kashmir,” said Bishop Peter Celestine of Jammu-Srinagar.

Father Borst operates two schools in the heavily Muslim region. “The notice is a sparked by jealous vested interests,” said Predhuman Joseph Dhar, who is working with Father Borst to translate the Bible into the local language. “The Muslim intelligentsia schools are unable to compete with his.”
