Pastoral letter of Latin Catholic church reminds CAA not an issue for Muslims alone
Thiruvananthapuram: A pastoral letter was read out at the Latin Catholic churches against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). The pastoral letter states that CAA is undemocratic and would break the secular democratic fabric of the nation. The pastoral letter was read out amidst the holy mass in Latin Catholic Churches.
The letter also mentions that everyone must get ready to fight for a secular India. Everyone must also utter Bharat Mata Ki Jai. By bringing in CAA, the nation would be divided based on religion and this is not the issue of Muslims alone. This is an issue for all people of the nation.
The letter states that through CAA, the nation is getting ready to become a religious state taking into account the statements put out by the leaders governing the country. The Catholic Church in India has decided to declare January 26 as the Constitution Protection day to protest against the CAA.
