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.

Jalandhar Bishop raped, Kerala nun complained, Police action taken, but, the crimes are analyzed between Vatican and Indian authorities! [1]

Jalandhar Bishop raped, Kerala nun complained, Police action taken, but, the crimes are analyzed between Vatican and Indian authorities! [1]

Kerala church crimes increasing

Is God’s own country becoming rape and sexlpoitation state?: Kerala, the highly literate state in India has been known for “nunnery” discussed in 1980s, Abhaya rape-murder case in 1990s and now series of rape, sexploitation and multiple sexual activities of bishop, pastors and priests. The Communist government of Kerala, the secular Congress or the most secular Universities of Kerala have not been discussing and debating about theses issues. Franco Mulakkal, a Kerala bishop has been accused of sexually abusing a Catholic nun for many times. As at one stage, she could not tolerate, she complained to the Church authorities and as usual, they did not bother, as it would tarnish the image of the Church. As the CBCI, Cardinal and other higher religious orders did not bother, she complained to the police. As the police started investigation, slowly, the details are going to press and hence news is appearing. Though, the church always tries to treat it as “internal affair” to be settled amicably, the issue is treated in common, as many women are subjected to such exploitation. Moreover, there has been involvement of five priests raping a nun, who came for confession.

Does the rape-Bishop want to take asylum in Vatican and denial of charges: Here in this case, Franco Mulakkal denied the accusation of the nun. As news came that he might take asylum in Vatican to escape from rape charges, as the law has become active after “Nirbhaya rape case.” Nowadays, the Vatican has been so lenient to sex-cardinals, sex-bishops, sex-rapists of all orders of the church and the such sex clergy has been embolden to seek asylum in foreign countries and Vatican itself, to escape from the criminal and judicial proceedings of the respective countries, Thus, Franco stated denying the charges of “fleeing to Vatican”. When, the “running away news” appeared, he once again denied the charges on 12-07-2018, Thursday and the reports of his moving to the Vatican[1]. Even as a special probe team mounted a detailed investigation against Franco Mulakkal, the Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Jalandhar in Punjab, he dismissed any plans of going away anywhere[2].

Jalandhar Bishop filed complaint against nun

Kerala police alerted immigration authorities about Franco Mulakkal: It was reported earlier on 12-07-2018 Thursday the Kerala Police had written to immigration authorities to prevent Mulakkal from leaving India[3]. Apprehension that the bishop, having international connections, may leave the country to evade arrest has prompted police to write such a letter to the immigration department, the official said[4]. “We have written to the immigration requesting them not to allow the bishop to leave the country,” said a police officer supervising the investigation. Apprehension that the bishop, having international connections, may leave the country to evade arrest has prompted police to write such a letter to the immigration department, the official said[5]. The decision would be taken after investigation and collection of evidences from Jalandhar[6].

The raped nun had to complain to the Cardinal, who has already been involved in criminal and fraudulent cases: Ironically, the nun had first lodged her complaint against Bishop Mulakkal with te Major Archbishop Cardinal Mar George Alencherry, head of the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church, who is accused of involvement in a mega land scam in his Ernakulam-Angamaly Archdiocese[7]. A complaint is pending with the Kochi Police seeking legal action against the Cardinal for not alerting the authorities even after getting a complaint on a serious offence like rape from a nun[8]. So, how such accused authorities, criminally tarnished priests and others could sit and take decision judiciously? Will justice would be delivered properly and faithfully.Moreover, how and why, they could run state within the state, when law-enforcing authorities are there – like many questions start raising in the minds of common people of India. Many wonder how law of this land could differ rapists of different religions are treated differently. In Nirbhaya case, one Muslim escaped punishment on the plea that he was a “minor” while raping! So also, here, the rapist has been a bishop.

Franco claimed that the police did not come to him: The Bishop told a Malayalam TV channel in his office in Jalandhar that he has not even been contacted by the police[9]. He also said he has not applied for any anticipatory bail[10], “because he has done no wrong”. “I now hear reports that I am trying to run away to Vatican. I wish to state that I am very much here (Jalandhar) and all such reports are baseless and am not running anywhere,” he said[11]. Trouble began for the bishop when a Catholic nun alleged that she was sexually abused by him several times between 2014 and 2016. The nun went to the police on June 29 with her accusations and submitted a 72-page statement. According to police reports, the nun produced documentation and other evidence for her case[12]. Police authorities said she provided details of 13 instances when she was allegedly abused by the accused from 2014-2016. An FIR was registered against the bishop and a 114-page detailed statement was taken from the nun. Mulakkal, for his part, maintains that he has done “no wrong at all” and that the nun took part in several functions besides travelling with him.”She also took part in the functions after the death of my mother. I have no clue on why all this has surfaced,” added the bishop. The probe team has so far collected evidences from a convent near Kottayam, where the bishop is alleged to have abused the nun.

Why the Vatican, CBCI and others have been senseless and try to cover up?: Vatican will not act immediately against Jalandhar bishop Franco Mulakkal against whom a nun has levelled rape allegations[13]. It is learnt that CBCI and Vatican Nuncio are carefully watching the situation[14].”At present, Vatican is not planning any action against the bishop. Normally, Vatican does not interfere with the law and order of a foreign country,” said a priest from Punjab.”Earlier, Vatican had removed a North Indian bishop from his post on the basis of sexual assault allegations against him. The action was taken on the recommendation from Vatican Nuncio. But the Church didn’t get any proper evidence and the Nuncio had received numerous complaints against the action,” said the priest. “Every time, Vatican studies the matter in detail before taking any action. Earlier, Vatican had immediately removed Kerala bishop John from his post similar allegations. But there was no police case of complaint into it,” said a senior priest from the Syro Malabar Church. “We have received information that Vatican Nuncio has already informed Vatican about the issue. Vatican is also watching whether the state or central government in India has taken any action against the bishop,” said the priest. Meanwhile, a group of nuns, priests and laity members of the Roman Catholic Church has written to the Vatican over the nun’s allegations, urging it to provide justice to the women in the Church. It will also be forwarded to Vatican Nuncio Giambattista Diquttro and Catholic Bishop Conference of India (CBCI) president Cardinal Oswald Gracious.
