 We condemn the brutal murder of Fr. Thomas Pandipally, CMI in Andhra Pradesh on August 16th / 17th 2008.
We call upon the Government of Andhra Pradesh, very specially the Chief Minister, the Director General of Police and others responsible, to investigate into this murder immediately and to bring to book all those responsible for this heinous act.
We also call upon the Central Government and all the State Governments to look into the consistent attacks on the minorities of this country, very specially on Christians and Muslims and to ensure protection and security of every single citizen under the freedoms and rights guaranteed by the Constitution of India.

While the crimes in Orissa are going unabated, violence has also erupted across other BJP-dominated states like Karnataka and Madhya Pradesh.

Karnataka has a sizeable Christian populace who have also started an online petition - http://www.petitiononline.com/UnitedM/petition.html

Please sign here, even though the earlier one was discontinued (no idea why). It seems like it's not only the country administration that lack the will to counter the evil one, but also our church is losing it's battle to protect it's innocent.

God help us.
