Hundreds of thousands of Indian Catholics are petitioning the government to improve living conditions there.
The Syro-Malabar Catholic Congress presented Kerala state Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan with the petition late last month after a major signature campaign, one meant to address what the congress described as “unprecedented crises” facing the Christian community there.
Vijayan “was very concerned and assured to consider our demands,” Catholic Congress President Biju Parayannilam told UCA News this month.
“Around half a million Catholics” in Kerala signed the petition, UCA News said.
