Pursuit of Justice – A Prophetic Response in India

Medical Mission Sister Babita Kumari Das recently spoke at the National Lawyers Forum Conference in New Delhi on empowering Dalits, an Indian caste group that has suffered notable discrimination, even within the Catholic Church. Priests and religious lawyers gathered for the first time to reflect on the theme: Pursuit of Justice – A Prophetic Response in India. Heartened by the Catholic Bishops Conference of India’s (CBCI) recent policy document and action plan on Dalit Empowerment, Sister Babita encouraged support of the CBCI’s short and long-term action plans to incorporate Dalit Christians into leadership roles in the Church.
