Manorama projected the new Catholicose as the 91'st catholicose of the east. I have read that if the H.G Mor Ivaniose Murimattom was the successor of the ancient Maphrianate then the name should have been Baselious Paulose II instead of Baselious Paulose I. (it is also heard that the ill incumbent was taken on a four legged cot to the Altar of Niranam church and the ordination by the displaced Patriarch H.H Abded Messiah was done at gun point). When H.H Yakoob III of blessed memory ordained H.B Baselious Paulose II as Catholicose of the East in 1975 the correct and canonical Baselious Paulose II of the Maphrianate was born. Hence the claim of MOSC regarding the number is wrong. Also the name Paulose II is wrong.
Let good will prevail with them. After all what is there in a name for them!! Isn't it?
