Archbishop Peter Machado of Bangalore in India said the Church will continue to do its work without fear despite the challenges and threats.
“Even if a case is filed against me, accusing me of indulging in conversion, for providing education and healthcare to the Dalits and the marginalized, I would continue with those good works,” said the prelate.
“No government can stop us from doing good works; no one can challenge us,” said the 68-year-old head of the southern Indian archdiocese. He also leads the ecumenical All Karnataka United Christian Forum for Human Rights.
Archbishop Machado called on the government to come out with data on the number of children converted in Christian educational institutions as he slammed fundamentalists for playing politics and spreading fake news.
Earlier, the archbishop called the anti-conversion law in Karnataka “dangerous” and described its implementation as a “sad chapter for the Christian community.”
