(Zenit.org).- The bishops conference in India firmly condemned the attacks on Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity at the hands of Hindu fundamentalists in the Indian state of Kerala. “We forcefully condemn the two attacks against the Missionaries of Charity which occurred yesterday (Sunday) in Kerala. We are very worried by the recrudescence of Hindu fundamentalist groups seeking political space,” said Father Babu Joseph Karakombil, the conference spokesman to the Fides News Service. “But we have received the solidarity of the institutions, civil organizations and numerous Hindu, Muslim and Buddhist religious groups,” he stressed. The attacks took place in the town of Pantheerankave , north of Cochin in the state of Kerala, southern India . The town is a shanty-town inhabited by native Indians without caste.
