India Wants Religious Freedom

Article: Cardinal: Gandhi Wanted More for India

Cardinal Telesphore Toppo, the archbishop of Ranchi, has succinctly summarized the state of affairs regarding the rights of members of the Christian minority to freely practice and propagate their faith in democratic India.

The triumph of forces opposed to the fundamentalism of the predominant majority in this country’s recent general election is proof of this. Most Indians have a true understanding of the innate goodness of Hindu philosophy and religiosity. As the cardinal said, India is a very religious nation and most of its 1.2 billion citizens are deeply devout Hindus, Muslims, Christians (Catholics and Protestants), Sikhs, Parsis, Jews, Buddhists, Jains, animists, etc. etc.
