Church burning: Christian delegation wants to meet Modi

Worried over the recent attack on a church in the national capital and fearing more such attacks, the Delhi Catholic Archdiocese (DCA) has sent a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi seeking an appointment to discuss the issue.

At a time when the national capital is gearing up for Christmas celebrations, attack on a church — which was strongly condemned by the Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh — has ‘sent a
sense of insecurity’ among the Christians.

Spokesperson of the Delhi Catholic Archdiocese Fr Savarimuthu Sankar said, “We have lots of expectation from the new National Democratic Alliance government but the recent attacks on churches has really forced us to think about our security. We are worried.”

 “We have sent a letter to both Union Home Minister and Prime Minister Narendra Modi for their appointments to express our concern. So far, we have not received any official communication from their respective ministries. But we are hopeful that our PM will spare some time for us,” he added.
