AIZAWL, Feb 10 - Special mass prayer was held in churches across Mizoram for the defeat of the Citizenship (Amendment) Bill (CAB) in the Rajya Sabha, Presbyterian church’s Mizoram Synod sources said on Sunday.
Members of 16 major churches of different denominations held prayers on Saturday night.
The appeal made by the Mizoram Kohhran Hruaitute Committee (MKHC), a conglomeration of leaders of major churches, had asked the local churches of all denominations to pray so that the Bill gets stalled in the Rajya Sabha.
A press statement issued by MKHC said that the Bill is “harmful” for Mizoram and Christians.
“Passage of the amendment Bill can result in suppression of the freedom of religion and is against the spirit of secularism,” the MKHC statement said. – PTI
