Editorial Viewpoints

  • Please note that churches and pastors encourage violence ! 
  • Will those pro (re) gressive factions and patrons of ‘Sarva-Dharma-Sama-Bhav’, who are always critcising Hindu Saints, say anything on this matter ? It has been time and again exposed how wrong the depiction of Christian bishops has been, in India, as promoters of peace, but nobody will say a word on such issues !

People from Vijhinjam including the local residents, fishermen, and members of ‘The Latin Catholic Diocese Church’ have been demanding the stoppage of the construction of Adani port and asking for conducting a study of the erosion of land in the coastal area. The agitations going on for the last 120 days became violent a few days back, for which cases have been registered against 50 demonstrators, including Archbishop Thomas J Netto and other bishops.
