All India Christian Council

The All India Christian Council (AICC) on Wednesday took offence to the ‘sale of Holy Bibles’ as ‘recyclable scrap’ after they allegedly found trucks transporting copies of the Bible to a paper mill in Srikakulam.

“We are not accusing anyone but we are grieved by this incident, which has hurt the sentiments of Christians across the State,” AICC national secretary Sam Paul told mediapersons. He has requested the Andhra Pradesh government to initiate an inquiry so that such an ‘unfortunate’ incident does not repeat itself. “

On May 4, we found that six trucks from Bhimavaram were carrying Bibles to the paper mill,” State president M. Prasad said. “We reported it to the police and those who were responsible apologised.” A month later, however, two trucks from Rajahmundry were found carrying Bibles to the same paper mill. “There have been reports of demonstrations in some parts of the State,” Mr. Paul said.
