Chennai: Hundreds of Christians, priests and pastors from various parishes, led by an Archbishop, today observed a one-day fast here against alleged police action in a church near Idinthakarai, the epicentre of the anti-nuclear protests against Kudankulam Nuclear Power Project (KNPP).
Alleging that police had entered St Lourde’s church campus on September 10 under the pretext of looking for anti-nuclear
protestors, Rev AM Chinnappa, Archbishop of Madras-Mylapore said, “They had insulted religious symbols.”
Chinnappa and other priests also alleged that police damaged church property.
They demanded action against police officers who permitted the personnel to enter the church.
The church is in Idinthakarai near Kudankulam, where anti-nuclear protestors, spearheaded by People’s Movement Against Nuclear Energy, have been agitating against commissioning of KNPP.
