Indian nuns demand arrest of bishop accused of rape

Bishop Targets Nun

In July this year, the nun filed a complaint with the Kottayam district police chief, alleging that Jalandhar Bishop Franco Mulakkal had raped her and had unnatural sex with her multiple times at a small town near Kottayam between 2014 and 2016.

The nun, who admitted to be under vast pressure in her battle against Bishop Franco Mulakkal, said that she was pained by the derogatory comments raised against her by sitting legislator PC George and will not meet the media.

As per the initial investigation of the police, Bishop of Jalandhar Franco Mulakkal abused his position and repeatedly raped a nun from Kerala, a special team probing the case told the Kerala High Court. Reportedly, Catholic reformation organizations also joined the protest which had been called by the Joint Christian Council.

Something really wrong inside this White House
Trump tweeted Monday that he has been subjected to "Phony books, articles and T.V. "hits" like no other pol has had to endure". Woodward said , adding that the comments by the administration officials "are political statements to protect their jobs".

"More than 70 days have passed since the nun filed a police complaint against the bishop".

The protesting nuns rejected the charge and said they will continue their agitation till justice was delivered. He went on to say that it was suspicious that the woman raised a complaint only when she was harassed the 13 time and kept quiet at all the previous instances. The nuns and their families are facing mental trauma and continuous pressure from the church, but they are keen to fight for their fellow sister. "We would like to know is there any provision in Canon Law for justice for nuns and women?"

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.

Making a fervent plea for urgent intervention, the nun in a scathing letter also sought to explain her silence before coming out against the bishop and said she had "tremendous fear and shame" and wondered why the church was "closing its eyes towards the truth". The police will decide whether the accused bishop should be summoned for questioning in this case. "The bishop should be punished", Sharma further said.

The Kerala High Court asked the police to clarify if the bishop was questioned and what steps had been taken after the police questioning.
