Jalandhar Bishop raped, Kerala nun complained, Police action taken, but, the Vatican, CBCI and others want to cover up! [2]

Pope, Cardinal, bishop - in India what they do

Letters and documentary evidences prove the men rea of the rapist bishop: In a July 12, 2018 letter to Cardinal Oswald Gracias of Mumbai, president of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India, and another of the same date to Archbishop Giambattista Diquattro, apostolic nuncio to India, 168 people asked for action against Bishop Franco Mulakkal of Jalandhar[1]. The letter asked Archbishop Diquattro to “advise Pope Francis to relieve the bishop concerned of his pastoral responsibilities so that the Church is seen to actually practice the zero tolerance it professes to observe in abuse cases.” The signatories include representatives of the Indian Theological Association, a forum of Catholic theologians; the Forum of Religious for Justice and Peace, an advocacy group for women religious; the Indian Christian Women’s Movement, a national conference of women religious and others; and the interdenominational United Christian Forum for Human Rights[2].

Nuns talked ill of raped nun supporting rapist-bishop 12-07-2018

Sister Rejeena Kadamthottu, Mother General of the diocese accuses raped nun: Serious allegations were raised against the nun who brought out sexual abuse allegations at Jalandhar Bishop Franco Mulakkal by Sister Rejeena Kadamthottu, Mother General of the diocese, in which the nun belongs[3]. She told Mathrubhumi News that the she had received a complaint that the nun, who filed complaint against the bishop, had maintained illicit relationship with another person[4]. The Mother General said that the nun’s relative in Delhi submitted the complaint that the nun had illicit relationship with her husband. In the complaint, the relative alleged that the nun and her husband were involved in an illicit relationship and hence she was on the verge of committing suicide. As this complaint was beyond her authority, she handed over the complaint to Bishop Franco Mulakkal who heads the Diocese. “Subsequently, the church conducted a probe over this. But the nun was not ready to cooperate with the probe,” Sister Rejeena said. She also alleged that the nun has come up with allegations against the Bishop fearing disciplinary action. “The nun gave the letter raising allegations against the Bishop in June 2018. However, I have not received any such complaints against the Bishop before. Nobody had bad opinion about the Bishop,” Sister Rejeena said.

Sister Regeena’s campaigm appears disgusting, unbecoming and anti-woman: Ironically, this news appears to be planted as it is none of Regeena’s business to research into another woman’s personal life, when, she does not bother about the complaint made now[5]. One woman wanted to have sex with another man or not does not give any authority for Franco bishop to rape a nun for one or many times. As a woman, that too with authority of “The Mother General” and all, it is unbecoming for her to speak before the media degrading womanhood[6]. In fact, she should have felt ashamed for the behaviour of the Cardinals, bishops, pastors and other priests who are continuously involved in many crimes[7]. Thus, the nuns supporting the rapist bishop on one or the other pretext is  disgusting, unbecomibg and anti-woman, when the Christian missionaries, propagandidst organizations and others have been aggressively campaiging as if they are the sole selling agents of human rights, women rights, child rights and so on!

Bishop, cardinal and nun

The taped conversation between the nun and the Cardinal released – 19-07-2018: The conversation on a four-minute audio tape surfaced a day after Alencherry told investigators that he had not received any sexual assault complaint from the nun. Hindustan Times could not independently ascertain the authenticity of the audio-taped conversation. But the 43-year-old nun is heard complaining against Mulackkal in the purported conversation that took place in December, six months before she registered a police complaint, accusing Mulakkal of raping her 13 times between 2014 and 2106. Alencherry is heard saying on the purported tape that he will say he was unaware of any complaint if the police approached him. He is heard advising the nun to settle everything on her own and not to drag others into it. The police have found he was at the convent when the nun was allegedly raped after checking the visitors’ diary. The police have recorded the nun’s statement before a magistrate court. They have also rec- orded statements of other nuns and employees at the convent.

Jimmy Poochakkat accepted the tape conversation, but, as usual claimed that it was edited[8]: Syro-Malabar Church spokesman Father Jimmy Poochakkat admitted the two spoke in December, but insisted the audio taped conversation had been edited to defame the church[9]. “It seems the conversation is not complete. It is being used to show the church in a bad light.” If that is the case, again, it is proven that the whole affairs of rapping is well known to the Church, even at higest authority, yet, they wanted / want to suppress the sexual crimes. Moreover, he should come out with the facts, who are interested in editing such tapes. Alencherry reiterated he had never received any sexual abuse complaint from the nun when Vaikkoam deputy superintendent of police K Subhash-led police team recorded his statement. “The cardinal had informed us that the nun had told him about some issues at her convent. However, he did not receive any complaint of sexual assault,” said Subhash. The nun has maintained she was forced to approach the police after many including Alencherry ignored her complaints. The nun’s father and brother also claimed to have complained to the church superiors. The nun, who is also a mother superior, is a Punjab-based Missionaries of Jesus congregation member. She was heading one of the two convents the congregation runs in Kerala. She alleged Mulakkal had raped her at the convent’s guest house. The police are yet to question Mulakkal, who has pleaded innocence saying he was being implicated for exposing financial irregularities at the convent.

Christian-watch forums are alerted and disturbed by such sexploitation and suppression of evidences[10]: UCAN News reported as follows[11], “A TV channel in Kerala has released a recording claimed to be of a telephone conversation between Cardinal Alencherry and the nun.The nun is heard referring to the continued harassment she and others suffer within the congregation, and the cardinal suggested she complain to Latin-rite bishops’ conference head Cardinal Oswald Gracias of Mumbai. The nun then seeks his help to get an appointment with Cardinal Gracias but Cardinal Alencherry refuses to do so. “You go to Mumbai and approach him directly,” the cardinal says”. The other Christian agencies have also been conciously worried about the revealing Christian sex crimes[12].  As Indian press has been so secular, liberal and has freedom, pehaps, it has started slowly bringing out facts. Or a situation has reached that the true Christians themselves cannot tolerate such crimes have been hoing on with the support of higher authorities like the cardinals and the Vatican[13]. Thus, it is amply proved to show how the Church and the Vatican run a parallel government controlling the Christians and protecting the criminals of all sorts, just to save bthe name of Christianity and the Vatican.

Why Christian schools exceed the limits of education, resort to psychological methods and indulge in sexual harassments, molestations and rapes?

May 1, 2018

Why Christian schools exceed the limits of education, resort to psychological methods and indulge in sexual harassments, molestations and rapes?

Georgris Britto arrested, Jaipur catholic priest-School

Why more and more Christian religious heads involve in sexual crimes?: The Christian indulgences in sexual harassments, molestations and even rapes have been increasing and become order of the day, not only throughout the world, but also in India. Every day, news is coming about the involvement of Christian cardinal, bishop, pastor, priest and so on in the violations of Acts and rules of the land. Initially, they have been adjusting and compromising within the church and hence suppressing many such incidences do not come out and get published in the media. But, later, slowly, the violations exceeded limits and such contraventions warranted legal action, adjudication and persecution. Though, the church-related crimes have been increasing, the responsible religious heads have been trying to suppress, instead of bringing discipline in the church. The Jaipur sexual harassment issue has not been drawn attention of the media, though, much hue and cry has been made out for other sexual crimes. In Tamil media, virtually, there has not been no whisper is made about the issue.

Britto arrested, Jaipur catholic priest

Georgish Britto surrendered or tried to ran away hiding?: A Catholic priest has been sent to a jail in Rajasthan for allegedly sending an obscene message to a teenage girl student of his school. In one of the messages, the accused wrote – ‘Your husband is always waiting for you’. Police on April 20, 2018 arrested Father Georgish Britto, vice principal of St Anselm School in Alwar[1]. A case was registered against him two days earlier for texting the 15-year-old ninth grader[2]. He was arrested when he went to “surrender” to the police, Father Edward Oliveira, vicar general of Jaipur diocese, told Matters India on April 23, 2018. The school is managed by the diocese of Jaipur. Alwar is some 160 km northeast of Jaipur, the state capital and the diocesan headquarters. According to other reports, the accused vice principal fled to Dausa in a bus after he came to know about the police case[3]. He called up his friend in Alwar from Dausa. The police traced the call and a team was immediately rushed to Dausa and arrested from Lalsot Road[4]. He was brought to Alwar where he is being interrogated. Sources said that the man was “planning to flee” to his native village via Jaipur. So the catholic priest wanted to “surrender” to the police or “planning to flee” to his native village has to be decided by the God!

Why Georgish Britto was sending obscene messages and videos?: On Wednesday [18-04-2018], there was a huge drama at the school when the girl’s parents accompanied by members of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad and the Bajrang Dal protested against the school’s vice principal. Following this, senior police officials arrived at the school to pacify the protesters[5]. The girl’s family alleged that not only was the vice principal sending their daughter obscene messages and videos from the past few days, but was also forcing her to change her religion[6]. Local political leaders including MLA Banwari Lal Singhal also arrived at the school to take stock of the situation[7]. The protesting group alleged that the vice principal was hiding somewhere in the school and police is deliberately not arresting him[8]. Paul, the principal of the school, however, said that he was unaware about the vice principal’s activities. After the high-octane drama, IPS Anil Beniwal reached the spot and asked the girl’s father to report the matter. “The vice principal has been booked under the POSCO Act and search is on to find him,” Beniwal said. The girl had not complained about the obscene messages earlier, obviously afraid of the school authorities.

Georgish Britto – can he capable of giving counselling to the girl?: According to the Times of India, the administration called in additional forces to keep the situation under control. While the protestors argued with the cops; the parents accused the school of shielding their teacher. Father Oliveira said the girl’s brother beat Father Britto on April 20, 2018. The vicar general said Father Britto, who was ordained hardly a year ago, had counseled the girl’s family to sort out some domestic problems. How can he indulge in such activities of counselling the girl is intriguing. The girl’s elder brother had also studied in the same school. The girl apparently developed some “infatuation” toward the young priest and used her father’s mobile to message him at night after her father went to sleep, the vicar general explained. This type of counter accusation by the Church and clergy expose their ugliest side of sexual harassment that has been going on in many Christian schools. However, the father caught the girl chatting with the priest and complained to the police. So the fact has been more clear than the Christian attempts of suppressimg the facts, in spite of their position, status etc.

Oswald Lewis letter dated 24-04-2018

In one of the messages, the accused wrote – ‘Your husband is always waiting for you’: This cleararly exposed his non-educative, non-catholic and indiscipline attitude and sexual mindset of the priest. Ironically, this has been the characteristic of the Christian church and clergy in India and the world also. Father Britto was arrested under Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act of 2012, a stringent law to end abuses of minors[9]. Father Oliveira said the groups had accused the vice principal of trying to convert the girl and fondling her, besides sending lewd messages[10]. The vicar general said the junior priest had admitted that he only sent the message to the girl but denied other charges. “He admitted what he had done was imprudent and wrong. What has happened is very sad,” he added. The school authorities reportedly claimed that the student had never complained about such messages. But, the school authorities have not been so naïve to leave the girl, particularly, when she complained to the police. Father Oliveira said the accused priest had to remain in jail until May 5, 2018. “We can move for bail only after that,” he added.

Georgris Britto arrested, Jaipur bishop- Oswald Lewis

The arrogant attitude of the Church: Here, also, evidently, the national media though silent, the few covered the incidence tried to dub the excessive reaction of the so-called “right-wing” groups. Ironically, the letter of Oswald J. Lewis dated 24-04-2018 addressed to “Clergy, Religious & Laity, and Catholic Diocese of Jaipur” has been intriguing and shocking.  “In times of trial, uncertainties, and hardships we have only one source of consolation – Jesus the Good Shepherd. We turn to him in prayer. I hereby request you to fast and pray that we may tide over this situation and that Fr. Georgish Britto may have the strength and courage to bear the cross that the Lord has given him. Do pray for Paul Pulikal too that he be guided and strengthened by the Holy Spirit. Thanking you for your understanding of the situation sympathetically and praying for us.” This clearly proves that the Christian heads have not regretted, apologized and repented for the sinful crimes and criminal sins committed, but with theological arrogance, tried to justify such heinous sexual crimes, coolly forgetting the affected girls and women of India.

Sex abuse- church cover up-

In secular state, crimes cannot be justified with theology: Crime is a crime and it has to be dealt with according to the law of the land, but, when it is justified, vindicated and defended based on religion, theology and other illegal means, then, there is a reason to believe that the offenders, wrongdoers and criminals are protected. Then, as a pattern is noted in such perpetrated crimes for the last 50 years, it is nothing but organized crime carried on under the guise of religion by a particular group or believers. When the country is secular, the criminals cannot be treated differently, just because, he is a Christian and his theology helps him to escape from crimes committed. But, the Bishop’s letter quoted above clearly proves that the Christians have such extraneous mysticism, illegal spirituality and illegitimate holiness means to cover up crimes of all sorts by divine theology. This is very dangerous in a secular state, democratic polity and civil society and therefore, every citizen of India has right to expose such heinous ideology, atrocious philosophy and dreadful dogma paraded as acceptable religion and bring the criminals to court for prosecution and punishment.
