Bhopal: Nearly 3000 members of several Christian and progressive organisations took out a silent march from St. Philomena's Church premises in Mysore city on Saturday morning as a mark of protest against the recent attack by miscreants on Holy Family Church in Hinkal.


The activists of Sarva Dharma Samanvya Samithi, Popular Front of India and various progressive and Christian organisations took part in the march. Earlier, a meeting was held in the Church premises to condemn the attack on Hinkal Church.


According to Star of Mysore online, a daily web news portal, Bishop Rev. Thomas Antony Vazhapilly, who addressed the meeting, strongly condemned the attack and said that the government should take stringent action against the culprits. The Government should also take measures to prevent such attacks on churches in future, he added and called upon the people to maintain peace and discipline while taking out the protest march.


Rev. Fr. Marie Joseph, Parish Priest, who also addressed the meeting, recalled the attack on Holy Family Church and said that he was in the church from 9.30 pm to 11.30 pm that night, following which he went to sleep.


He said that the attack on the church took place after midnight. There was an attack on the Hinkal Church in 2002 also but no case was registered then. Avila Convent too witnessed attack in 2006 and both the cases were not taken seriously by the police, the Parish Priest reportedly lamented. The Police are now trying to cover up the attack on Hinkal Church as a case of robbery, he said and urged the Government to trace the culprits and take stringent action against them.


Leaders of Christian organisations, Priests of various Churches, former Minister Dr. H.C. Mahadevappa, MLCs Sandesh Nagaraj, K.T. Srikantegowda, Chikkamadu, KRRS President Puttannaiah, former MLCs D. Madegowda and B. Chidanand, leaders and Corporators of different parties attended the meeting. Later, a silent march was taken out from St. Philomena's Church via Ashoka Road before culminating at Gandhi Square where the protestors staged a silent dharna in front of Mahatma Gandhi's statue, the report said.


The processionists representing various Christian and other organisations from the city, Kollegal, Mandya, Chamarajanagar, H.D. Kote and other places wore black badges and held banners of their respective organisations. They also held placards that appealed not to disturb communal harmony and calling for maintaining peace, the report added.
