Bishop Accused Of Rape: Is The Church Covering Up Sexual Abuse?

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. It said bringing the real truth in the case was their "moral and divine" responsibility. She also feared "threats" her family members. "Investigation should be completed quickly and the culprits should be given punishment as prescribed in the law", he told reporters in Kochi.

The present PILs have been filed alleging that despite the passage of nearly four weeks after the first PIL, no progress has been made in the investigation and that the Bishop was still not arrested.

He said that a nun is supposed to be a virgin like the mother of Jesus and once she loses her virginity, there is no reason to call her nun.

"We need more evidence to incriminate Bishop Mulakkal beyond any doubts", said District Police Chief Hari Sankar last week.

Kerala MLA P C George ran into controversy when he made insensitive remarks against the nun who an actress who was has alleged that she was sexually assaulted by a bishop.

The nuns also alleged that police probing the case were trying to sabotage the investigation. "Though there were earlier instances of allegations of sexual abuse by priests, it is a rare and first-time incident that a nun openly registered protest and submitted a complaint against the bishop". The court has also sought to ask the details of the provisions made for the protection of the nuns.

"We are not getting justice from the police, church authorities and the government".

She demanded removal of the Jalandhar Bishop from the post, alleging that by continuing in the position, Franco and his close associates "are using the wealth of the diocese to divert" the course of the police investigation. "A very strong investigation is being carried out in the case". They were joined by the Catholic reformation organisations, including the Kerala Catholic Church Reformation Movement, at their indefinite protest in Kochi, seeking justice for the nun. "Your highness, I would like to ask: Will the Church authority -who stand to protect Bishop Franco and safeguard the dignity of the Church by hiding his wickedness- be able to give back what I have lost?" she asked in the letter. The statement has also said that the allegations against the Bishop are completely baseless.

Terming the allegations against him as "serious", the bishop said only three persons knew the truth.
