Church calls for restraint on issue of vandalism

The desecration of burial places belonging to Christians and Muslims at Curchorem has shocked the people of Goa, the Church said Monday. In a release, the diocesan centre for social communication media said, “That there could be people who could resort to such dastardly and cowardly acts to vent their feelings is beyond understanding, and the Church expresses her pain and distress at this vandalism.”

The statement further said, “The Church also manifests her solidarity with the aggrieved local communities and shares in the pain and injustice caused by this unwarranted profanation of the resting places of their dear and near ones. The places of final disposal of bodies are next only to houses of worship, demanding utmost respect and veneration.”

The Church also called for restraint from the aggrieved communities in expressing their “justified anger”, while adding that it expects the state machinery to be effectively geared to nab the culprits and that such acts are not repeated.
