Church dismisses the nun after she joined the protest demanding the arrest of Bishop Franco Mulakkal

In a shocking disclosure, a nun, belonging to the Syro Malabar Catholic church, who had joined the protest demanding the arrest of Bishop Franco Mulakkal, the Bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Jalandhar, who is accused of raping a nun in May 2014 and exploiting her sexually on several other occasions has been removed from performing church duties related to the church.

The nun who dared to stand up against the church atrocities and spoke in favour of the victim has alleged that the church took revenge for participating in the protest against the Bishop.

While speaking to Times Now, sister Lucy Kalapura revealed that today when she reached the convent the Mother Superior informed her that according to the decision taken by the head priest in the church she had to relieve herself from her duties of holding catechism classes, conducting prayers and other church-related duties.

The nun, disturbed by the church’s decision said that this was the price she was being made to pay for standing by the truth. Criticising the church authorities she said that instead of raising voice against the accused who has been involved in such a colossal sin, the authorities are instead, taking action against people who have dared to support to the victim.

For the first time in the history, the nuns had come together to castigate the Bishop for his abhorrent deed. A group of nuns had defied their vows to protest against Church atrocities and the attempts by the police to hush up the incident. However, the nuns’ agitation in Kochi, under the banner of ‘Save Our Sisters Action Council’, was called off on Saturday, a day after Mulakkal was arrested.

Saddened by the church’s decision, sister Lucy said, “I have done no wrong nor said anything against the church. No reason has been given for the decision.” She added that she would be happy if the church clarified where she had erred.

Indulekha Joseph, one of the leaders of the Kerala Catholic Church Reformation movement, alleged it was an attempt to silence the voices of protest against any form of unjust activities within the church.
