The spokesman of the Catholic Bishops' Conference of India, Father Dominic Emmanuel, said the president of another country had no business talking about what was happening to minorities in India. "We are aware of the problems caused by right-wing Hindu extremists," he said, "but Musharraf should first put his own house in order where the minorities do not enjoy equal rights. The blasphemy law, the special votes and the attacks on churches are known to the whole world."
