More kudos for CWN correspondent

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Sep 05, 2013

For the 2nd time in recent weeks, a veteran Catholic World News correspondent has been recognized for his work exposing the savage violence against Christians in India’s Kandhamal region, and their heroic faith. Anto Akkara, who was named in July as this year’s recipient of the Titus Brandsma award-- an award he will receive at an international conference in Panama later this month—has now published a new book, Kandhamal Craves for Justice. The book was launched in India at a press conference featuring a federal government minister, an archbishop, a leading judge, and of course the author. Kandhamal Craves for Justice will soon be available through Amazon; for now interested readers should see the author’s web site.
