CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Kuriakose Bharanikulangara of Faridabad called on Prime Minister Narendra Modi to rebuild Little Flower Syro-Malabar Church. AsiaNews reports that the 15-year-old church was destroyed because a government office considered it “unauthorized.”

“They arrived without warning,” said Father Jose Kannumkuzhy, the parish priest. “I was there when it happened. They destroyed everything: statues, objects used for prayer, the registers, the sound system. The altar is still standing but it is still unusable.”
