Re: What is the truth of the matter ?
- This is in reference to Mr. Eldho Daniel's write up.
The split actually occurred immediately after the
ascension of Vattaseri methran as Malankara methran.
In first meeting of the managing committee he refused
to give the keys of the "Besgasa room" to the Priest
and Lay trustees. (Konat Mathen Achen and C.J.Kurian).
Patriarch Abdella II 's and Abdel Masiha's arrival and
Vattaseri methran's mudakku are history.
When the methran kakshi consecrated Murimattom
catholica in 1912 the split was complete.
After Vattaseri methran's mudakku there arose some
questions "who is the malankara methran" and who
would take the interest of 'vattipanam'. Cases
followed one after another and still continue.
1934 is important only for the introduction of
"constitution" to the methran kakshi.
