Archbishop Dr Peter Machado Condoles Bereaved Families of Pulwama Martyrs
Bengaluru: “The world stood still in a state of great shock as the horrific attack that killed over 40 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel and many others injured when terrorists targeted a convoy with a car bomb at Awantipora in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama District on February 14, in what is considered as the worst attack ever on security personnel in the state”, stated the Metropolitan Archbishop of Bengaluru Dr Peter Machado in a press release on February 16.
Archbishop Dr Peter Machado further stated, “Needless to say, the attack on CRPF personnel in Pulwama is despicable. We strongly condemn this dastardly attack. The sacrifices of our brave security personnel should not go in vain. The need of the hour is to remain in unity, and exercise resilience against all the provocations of the enemy”.
Our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families of the brave soldiers. Saddened and shocked of the cowardly attack on our CRPF Jawan’s, the Bishops, the Priests, Religious Sisters and the lay faithful of the entire Christian community of Karnataka join the nation and the families of the brave martyrs in this hour of pain and sorrow.
We also wish and pray that the injured soldiers may quickly recover, gain good health and join their dear families at the earliest.
May the souls of the departed brave hearts, Rest in Peace.
