Missionary’s death is a lesson for us all


Re Indian police struggle to recover body of American, Nov. 23 The unfortunat­e murder of a young American on a remote island in the Andaman and Nicobar archipelag­o (India) at the hands of an isolated primitive tribe is an example of how misadventu­re and irresponsi­bility lead to the demise of a dream and the end of a precious life.

A community has the right to protect its privacy and the integrity of its lifestyle. Several ancient tribal communitie­s around the planet are facing dangers of extinction.

We need to be more responsibl­e towards local ethnic and ecological sensitivit­y. Saikat Kumar Basu, Lethbridge, Alta.
