Nun Sister Nirmala Speaks:

Bhubaneswar, Oct. 7: Superior-General of the Missionaries of Charity Sister Nirmala on Tuesday after meeting Chief Minister Naveen Patnik said the situation in Kandhamal was still bad.

Christians daring to return to Kandhamal continue to face death threats and forceful conversion to Hinduism. Government have totally failed to provide security to the poor and marginalised Christian community.

Raped Nun: Probe by CBI demanded

Police in Orissa responsible for protecting its citizens against the onslaught of Bajrang Dal led attacks, neglect their duties or turn a blind eye to the religious cleansing of Christian community.

The Church leaders gathered in Delhi on October 7th, demanded probe by the CBI rather than Orissa Crime branch into the confirmed rape of a Catholic nun at K. Nuagaon of Kandhamal district on August 25.

How can the very police who were silent spectators probe the crime in whose presence the Nun was gang raped and paraded naked?


Evangelical Fellowship of India requests its readers to write to the Chief Minister of Orissa, the Prime Minister and President of India appealing for a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation(CBI).
