My Opinion


Hello everyone, here is a statement I made in Asianet Malayalam News Chanel (New Hour of 28/02/2021) on whether what is called “Love Jihad” is a serious issue in Kerala. I received several responses to my comments, many of them critical. I accept them with humility. But I still believe that it is part of a calculated political agenda.


I participated in a panel discussion on Dec. 30. 2020 conducted by 24 News Channel on Political parties trying to influence Christian communities in the context of Kerala Panchayath Election results and in the wake of Kerala Assembly Election coming up in few months time. This had particular relevance of both Jacobite community and Orthodox Church invited by the Hon. Prime Minister of India for discussion initiated by Mizoram Governor Sri. P. S. Sreedharam Pillai.


Asianet News Channel conducted a discussion on the issue of the Government's decision to open religious places for worship after a period of more than two months in the context of Covid 19 pandemic. This video is edited with just my responses alone. This was held on June 6, 2020 from 8 pm.


This video was prepared by the Indian Orthodox Church Media Wing. They posted it in three episodes on YouTube and Facebook. I took them and combined it for easy viewing.


There is specific and definite order from the courts regarding parishes in Malankara Church. But a group of people instigated by few leaders for their vested interest and to keep their power in some Churches is trying to prevent these orders from being implemented. Unfortunately Police and political administration is supporting these anti-social elements. This creates unrest and law and order situation in the society. The media is discussing the matter and I participated in the discussion conducted by Manorama TV Channel on Dec. 20th 2018.


There was a court order from the Hon. Supreme Court of India regarding the way it has to be administered by. But a group of people are not ready to honour the order. The Government and the police are playing politics to help these anti court order people. A discussion on the matter was conducted by Manorama TV Channel and I participated in it.


I could not keep quite when the issues was handled by the bishop and the Church in an unhealthy manner. So I posted in Facebook the following comments. The first comment was taken by Mathrubhumi TV.Posted on Facebook on Sept 12, 2018 at 6.22 pm


I made a comment on the recent Hon. Supreme Court Verdict on three Churches in Kerala belonging to the Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church. Some people did not like it. So I had to give an explanation to my position.



This message uploaded to my YouTube Channel was sent to STOC (Marubhoomiyile Neerurava) for the occasion of the memorial of their founder Metropolitan His Grace Dr. Geevarghese Mar Osthatheos on Feb 19, 2016. He, the only bishop of the Church who got entry to their country, found this congregation over 40 years back.
