Christian weekly wants prayer for Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday found support from unexpected quarters as a weekly Christian publication in Kerala urged believers to pray for the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government at the Centre.

In its editorial titled ‘Narendra Modi, disciple of Jesus Christ’, Sunday Shalom – a weekly publication in Malayalam for Catholic communities — tries to trace the impact of BJP’s victory in the Lok Sabha elections on Christian faith and believers in the country.  “Narendra Modi has won on God’s design and with God’s consent. Anything that has God’s consent also comes with God’s plan,” Chief Editor Bro Benny Punnathara wrote.

Meanwhile, some of those who commented on the editorial’s online page have slammed the publication for its stance on Modi and alleged ‘political designs’ of the Church.
