Bishops conference cautions against right-wing wave

Catholic churches are working for the development of the poor and have good relations with them, said Myanmar Bishop Cardinal Charles Maung Bo SDB.

Speaking at the conference of Catholic bishops here, he said India is facing a challenge from the rightwing ideology.

"India, under the rightwing ideology, today is standing against the oppressed. We all need to unite and fight against the ideas that sow hatred," he said.

Apostolic Nuncio to India and Nepal, Archbishop Giambattista Diquattro, said Catholic churches have been rendering yeoman service in the field of education and medicine, and stressed the need for continuing that tradition.

Bengaluru Archbishop Bernard Moras was present at the event.
