The Papal Nucio’s office in Delhi claims diplomatic immunity and is not willing to entertain any telephonic complaints from the laity and in fact if one manages to reach them telephonically after repeated attempts the answer you receive is ” We are not under any obligation to give you any answer since the office enjoys diplomatic immunity”.
Members of the laity who have interacted with the said office in the past will be aware of the type of attitude of this office where the receiver refuses to give their names despite asking the caller for his .
Members of the laity will also be aware that all e mails sent to the said office go unanswered and one of the callers was told that these e mails are consigned to the waste paper basket.
Since the Nuncio’s office is representative of the Vatican in our country and is claiming diplomatic status when confronted with any problems in the local archdioceses one may ask ” Whether can a diplomat proselytize?”.
Recently the Pro Nuncio visited Mumbai and a few archdioceses and institutions and his observations reported in the Press are in-congruent with his diplomatic status.The said Pro Nuncio has also celebrated mass publicly.
In the circumstances the Government of India should cancel his accreditation with immediate effect.
