PRESS RELEASE ON THE OCCASION OF ID-E-MILAD
 
The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India most cordially greets our Muslim brethren as they celebrate the festival of Id-e-Miladwhich commemorates the Prophet Muhammad's birth and his teachings. During this festival when the Muslims are invited to recall and emulate the Prophet’s mercy for all mankind, his forgiveness, generosity, gentleness, trustworthiness and all his noble behavioural attributes, we join them in praying for an India full of these virtues.
 
May compassion and gentleness prevail in our country and may our respect for each other help us to build a stronger, more harmonious and peaceful India.
 
May the Almighty bestow on our Country his abundant blessings.
 
Bishop Theodore Mascarenhas SFX
Secretary General 
Catholic Bishops Conference of India
