We also request you to officially intimate your Parishioners through Pulpit Announcements about this Rally for special Prayers and also Participation of leaders/church members at the Rally, as similar announcements are being made in all the mosques for participation by Muslim community.  Necessary Police permissions have already been obtained & other work with regard to the Rally is in progress with active involvement of  different leaders of the Adhoc Committee Members of the Federation and the support of the respective Bishops/other Community Leaders. 

We seek your prayers and full co-operation for the utmost success of this Unique Joint Rally organised by the entire MINORITY COMMUNITY.  Various leaders have taken responsibility of distributing the pamphlets in their respective Churches/Mosques/and  Denominations.  As such, on behalf of KMN, we request you Pastors/Leaders to  collect the pamphlets. Your encouragement will go a long way in our joint efforts for God’s Glory by protesting against the atrocities against us by the Religious Fundamentalists violating HUMAN RIGHTS &  CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS IN KARNATAKA STATE with earnest prayers in the matter.
