Goa Jesuit chief says Citizenship Amendment Act-NRC can be abused

CAA

In his first outright critique of the Citizenship Amendment Act and the National Register of Citizens by the Goa Church, the head of the Jesuit Mission in Goa, Fr. Roland Coelho, has called for opposition to the CAA, saying the controversial Act along with the NRC was ominous and could be abused in Goa. “The CAA-NRC can be abused in Goa. Goa has fostered peaceful and harmonious existence between people of different faiths. Tourists often visit Goa because of the friendliness of people here and the pluralistic fabric of this state that makes people feel at ease with one another. This will change,” Coelho said in a statement on Thursday. Coelho is the Provincial of the Goa region of the Society of Jesus and heads the influential Jesuit Catholic order in a state where more than a quarter of the population is Catholic in religious orientation.
