I only told them repeatedly that the Bishop is taking many disciplinary actions through them just because I resisted to lie down with him.
The five nuns of Missionaries of Jesus are determined to get justice.
A nun who has accused a Roman Catholic Bishop of raping her has petitioned the Vatican representative in India alleging that the clergyman was using "political and money power" to bury the case and sought his removal from the post.
His comments attracted sharp reactions from the National Commission of Women and the Kerala Police team probing the incident. 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. "It's been 74 days since she gave a complaint, but other than the police questioning the victim, we don't see any other progress".
In a three-page statement issued to media, the congregation also alleged that the protest on the nuns are against faith. "We can not crucify an innocent soul based on such allegations", reported News18.
Two more public interest litigations have been filed in the High Court of Kerala seeking proper investigation of the case where Franco Mulakkal, Bishop of Jalandhar diocese of Syro-Malabar Church, is accused of raping a nun.
"We are not getting justice from the police, church authorities and the government". They (police) are studying it as to who is speaking truth. Deputy Superintendent of Police, Kottayam, K Subhash had earlier on August 13 informed the High Court that the investigation is going on effectively and in an impartial manner.
The survivor was also shamed by a local independent MLA PC George, who claimed on Saturday that the 44-year-old nun was a prostitute and was framing the accused.
However, Poonjar MLA PC George while speaking at a press conference had stirred up fresh controversy regarding the case where he reportedly questioned the nun's character as well as questioned her allegations. "Twelve times she enjoyed it and the 13th time it is rape?" "We will write to the Kerala Director General of Police for action against George", ANI quoted NCW Chairperson Rekha Sharma as saying.
