Fr. Cedric Prakash, Director of a voluntary organisation, Prashant, has condemned the continued attacks on Christians and Christian institutions in Orissa and in other parts of the country. “It is a matter of grave concern and deep shock,” he said.
This is not the first time that Christians are being attacked in the State of Orissa. The unthinkable burning to death of Dr. Graham Staines and his two little sons already figure high up in the list of inhuman acts in World History.
Earlier, in the night of December 20 in Gujarat, some Catholic nuns, priests and students were brutally attacked in a village near Kawant, Baroda District.
“It is the Constitutional duty of every Chief Minister, to safeguard the rights and freedom of every single citizen of one’s State,” Prakash said.
He called upon the Chief Ministers of the concerned States to ensure that such terrorist acts are put to stop immediately and those responsible for these heinous crimes are brought to book.
He also called upon the Central Government and statutory bodies such as the National Human Rights Commission and the National Commission for Minorities to intervene immediately so that the situation does not worsen and that communal harmony and peace prevail.
