JACOBITES WILL PROTEST ON JULY 10TH AGAINST POLICE ATROCITY
- Jacobite Church declared July 10th Sunday as `protest day' against
the police atrocity on the faithful at Aluva St. Mary's Church. The
Church Working Council met yesterday decided to conduct protect
meeting in all Churches in Malankara and later `silent procession'
Police brutally lathi-charged the priests and believers assembled at
Aluva St. Mary's Church on last Sunday, in support of the hunger-
strike of the Catholicose H.B. Baselius Thomas I. The Catholicos
started his `Fast until death' protesting the government support
given to Orthodox Catholicose-designate to enter into the
Trikkunnath Seminary Chappel on Saturday evening, while the area was
under CrPC 144 ban. It is alleged that the Chief Minister Oommen
Chandy, who is a member of the Orthodox Church is behind allowing
the Catholicose-designate for his entry into the Seminary.
The Working Council meeting demanded a judicial enquiry into the
events and punishing the culprits in the police. The meeting was
presided by Episcopal Synod Secretary Joseph Mor Gregorios
