Missionaries of Jesus condemns nuns’ protest

Indian Catholic nuns protest against bishop accused of rape

"I feel there are people who are against the church, they are using these sisters".

The bishop confined the nun to a guestroom in St Francis Mission Home in Kuravilangad in Kottayam district of Kerala.

In early August, one PIL was filed seeking arrest of the Bishop.

Five nuns joined street protests at the weekend organised by Catholic reform groups claiming the police were dragging their heels in the case.

The letter ends by saying that though she had filed a complaint with the police two months ago, no action was taken against the bishop due to his influence.

However, United Russia lost the first place to the Communist Party in the republic of Khakasia and Irkutsk and Ulyanovsk oblasts. The protests coincide with elections for 26 heads of Russia's 85 regions, including in Moscow , which are being held on Sunday.


She added that she herself went to see the nun, who was in a deep trauma, and alleged that the Punjab government and the Kerala police were not taking the matter seriously.

He said that a nun is supposed to be a virgin like the mother of Jesus and once she loses her virginity, there is no reason to call her nun. 12 times she enjoyed it and the 13th time it is rape? In a statement, the congregation said, "We strongly condemn the protest in Kochi".

The Missionaries of Jesus sister has also complained of harassment - including multiple death threats - since going public with her complaint against Mulakkal.

She demanded removal of the Jalandhar Bishop from the post, alleging that by continuing in the position, Franco and his close associates "are using the wealth of the diocese to divert" the course of the police investigation. "No accused would be allowed to escape the clutches of the law", he told reporters in Kannur.

Referring to a single bench's earlier order, which said it is the investigating officer's discretion to take a call on the arrest of the bishop after interrogating him, the petitioners had alleged that no progress has been made in the matter of arrest of the bishop. "Your highness, I would like to ask: Will the Church authority -who stand to protect Bishop Franco and safeguard the dignity of the Church by hiding his wickedness- be able to give back what I have lost?" she asked in the letter.

Five nuns from a convent in Kottayam, to which the victim belonged, also took part in the demonstration and alleged that she had been denied justice by the church, police and the government as no action has been initiated against the accused, Bishop Franco Mulakkal of the Jalandhar diocese.

Copies of the letter were sent to 21 others, including the Catholic Bishops Conference of India (CBCI) President Cardinal Oswald Gracias and Delhi Metropolitan Archbishop, Anil Couto.

The priest also hit out at those protesting against him.

Terming the allegations against him as "serious", the bishop said only three persons knew the truth. I suffered it silently.
