New Delhi (mizonews.net): Poor Christian Liberation Movement (PCLM) has condemned the “vicious propaganda war” launched against presidential candidate P A Sangama terming it “unfortunate”.
Sangma invited wrath of Christian leaders after his candid views on Kandhmal. Movement President R L Francis says that some vested interests in the church wants to maintain hostility between Hindus and Christians. ‘This is why they always keep attacking RSS and BJP,” the PCLM said.
Sangma, in reply to a question, has denied involvement of Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) in the murder of Graham Stains as there was no proof of this. Movement leader R. L. Francis has supported the same view point as the Supreme Court has not made adverse comment against role of RSS-BJP while delivering justice in this case.
“The Government appointed inquiry commission had explicitly told that the violence was due to converted Christians of scheduled castes and Kandh tribes. Most of the cases are sub-judice in the matter,” it added.
Francis also said that during recently concluded Goa election majority of Christians had supported BJP and a section of church had lampooned Govian Christians.
“Tribal leaders across the country are feeling proud on the candidature of P. A. Sangma. There is a need to stop propaganda war launched by church leaders against P. A. Sangma,” Francis said.
