My reply:

Dear (?)
Thank you for the mail and the document. Yes I noticed the matter, but I have not had the document with me.
This clearly shows either lack of knowledge of legal system on the part of the chief minister of Kerala, which is a shame for the whole state. Or he is playing a game (which I consider most probable one). Because, there are orders that are to be executed through a process and there are orders which do not need that. This case is one which does not have to be executed through a legal process. This is because the church was already in the custody and governance of the Orthodox Church, and it was the patriarch faction that filed a petition for election according to 1913 udambadi and to hand over the Church to the elected. The court rejected this application and the Church remains to be governed by the Orthodox Church. If the court had ordered otherwise, they would have needed a legal procedure for execution. Poor Keralites whose cm does not know even the basics of legal system of India.

Regards and prayers



The document is available at Malankaraorthodox.tv. It is nothing, but a disgrace, that the C.M. is making the excuse that the malankara orthodox church has not submitted yet another petition for the execution of the court's order. Where else in the world is someone who has a court order/verdict in their favor required to go back to the court asking for yet another order to get its order executed? It is shameful!

The executive branch is responsible for executing the orders of the judiciary whether or not the party that has the favorable verdict asks to get it executed.or not. Our C.M. is taking us too much for granted.

I believe it is high time that the C.M. is told that explicitly!

The executive do not have to do any thing in cases like this. They just do not involve themselves and the let the law take its own course. In the matter of Kolenchery Church, the Jacobite people simply obeyed the order of the court on the direction of the Superintendent of Police (Ernakulam Rural). The agitation started two days later on the assurance of the executive head of Kerala government that he will get them Kottoor Chapel if they start and agitation just like he did at Puthuppally. Now he says the order has to be executed through another case. It is interesting to note that the representative of the Jacobite party who attended the discussion in Reporter Chanel with me also said that we have to go to the court for execution. Two people speaking the same language! Earlier he asked H.G. Dr. Mathews Mar Severios and Rev. Fr. Johnes Abraham Konatt, "why can't you settle the matter by giving the Jacobites Kottoor Church?" Same was the question raised by the district collector. Again two people speaking the same language. Do you get the point.!!!

Yes, Thirumeni.

I did not, up until now, but I do get it now. This being the situation, there is no need for making any concession, whatsoever, let alone the Kottoor church. We do have a firm verdict from the court in our favor and hence should be able to take possession of what is legally and rightfully ours without any hindrance from any one. You are absolutely right that as we have the order in our favor there is no need for the executive branch of the government to butt in. They law of the land should be left alone to take its own course.

Best regards, Thirumeni
