CHRISTIAN BREAKING NEWS: ‘Christian Community Unable to Live in Manipur’: Pinarayi Vijayan, Chief Minister of Kerala, India, Days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi Met with Christian Leaders for Christmas [#KeralaCM #PinarayiVijayan]
Days after Prime Minister Narendra Modi met with Christian leaders and BJP workers for Christmas and conveyed his festive message to Christian families, Manipur Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan picked up Manipur violence, claiming that the “minority community” was targeted.
Vijayan was speaking at the Nava Kerala Sadas in Piravam, a municipality in Ernakulam district and a suburb of Kochi in the Indian state of Kerala, which has a substantial Christian population.
“Things have reached such a pass in Manipur that a segment of people… Christian community cannot live. There was no government intervention. We have seen the governments at the Center and the state maintaining silence. That those holding responsible posts had not even uttered a word on the violence. Now, we have noticed intervention of certain persons who were not willing to stop the genocide. For votes, certain people are ready to wear disguises. Everyone can understand the motive behind this attempt to pretend friendship.”

Vijayan’s criticism of the BJP’s Christian outreach programs comes a day after Saji Cherian, a cabinet minister and a Christian face in the ministry, criticized bishops who met Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Christmas Day last week, saying they enjoyed the wine and cake but did not speak about the Manipur violence.
