Catholic school attacked in India

Catholic World News - March 01, 2011

Suspected Hindu fundamentalists have attacked a Catholic school in the southwestern Indian state of Karnataka, smashing windows and causing damage to the building.

“We are alarmed because we fear that this could be a reaction by Hindu fundamentalist groups after the protests by Christians in Karnataka in recent weeks,” said Father Lucio Mascarenhas, vicar general of the Diocese of Belgaum. “However the faithful will not be stopped by injustice and falsities.”

“Christians in Karnataka have planned a chain of protests: first in Mangalore, then in Bangalore, now in Belgaum, in the next few weeks in other cities around the State, in a way to gain the authorities' attention and public,” he added.
