    The Chief of Urology at Ahalia Hospital describes the victim, Dr. Rajan Daniel, as "very religious and a gentleman". A few hours before his death, the victim wanted to read the Bible. The suspected murderer is a man of Pakistani nationality, maybe a patient.

    Mumbai (AsiaNews) - A "gentleman" with a strong faith in God and with an unwavering sense of duty: thus Dr. PK Gopinath Menon, Chief of Urology at Ahalia Hospital in Abu Dhabi, describes Dr. Rajan Daniel, the Indian doctor murdered on November 2 by a man of Pakistani origin. There is still no news regarding the case: Mohamed Abdul Jamil, the alleged murderer, is still detained and the police of the United Arab Emirates continue to investigate. Meanwhile, Sajan George, president of Global Council of Indian Christians (Gcic) explains there is ounting amazement at the silence of authorities and media in Kerala, the victim's country of origin.

    According to the testimony of his wife Geetha, the day of the murder Dr. Daniel, 58 years old, came home in the afternoon, after participating in a Conference in Dubai. The couple took a tea; before returning to the hospital for the evening shift, the victim read the Bible for half an hour. "Despite being a very religious man- his wife says - he did not usually do this, having little time. However, I did not want to disturb him". The murder happened immediately after his return to the hospital: Jamil was waiting for Dr. Daniel, and he attacked him procuring eight stab wounds. It is still unknown whether the suspect was the victim's patient.  .

    Last week, the Dr. Daniel's eldest daughter, Junu, with her family had visited from India. "He told me- says Dr. Menon- that he loved spending time with the two grandchildren, who, unfortunately, he could not see very often because of work commitments". "Rajan Daniel - the doctor continues - was a gentleman to the core. He would never hurt anyone ".

    After 24 hours of silence, China’s media today published excerpts, comments and editorials about Pope Francis’ interview with Asia Times. Although the pope did not address religious issues or Church problems, many saw the interview as an attempt to improve diplomatic relations between China and the Vatican, and advised Francis to accept Mao Zedong’s "three principles of independence" (theology, administration, jurisdiction), which would leave the power to appoint bishops in the hands of the Party. The People's Daily’s Global Times publishes an editorial on the issue.
