“I am Fr.Tom Uzhunnalil, my date of birth is 18 of August, 1958. I received messages of concern that you sent me my dear family people and thankful to you thank you very much.
They are treating me well to the extent that they are able. My health condition is deteriorating quickly and I require hospitalization as early as possible.
They contacted Indian government authorities several times and I have seen the massage of their response, it was very very poor. They also contacted bishop, bishop of Abu Dhabi. There, too, the response was not encouraging. Neither the bishop nor the Indian government authorities ask them what they really want to get me released. It is a poor response, and I am sad about that.
My dear family people, do what you can to help me released. Please, please, do what you what you can to get me released. May God bless you for that."
