Malankara Church has been in the court after a split since 1974. The case went through several stages and a final verdict was issues in 1995 by the Hon. Supreme Court of India. The execution of that was completed in 2002. According to the verdict of the court, all churches and institutions in Malankara Church have to be administered in terms of the 1934 constitution of Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church. But a group of people calling themselves as “Jacobites” under the Syriac Orthodox Church of Antioch split themselves with a new constitution and formed “Jacobite Syrian Christian Association Church”. They but, claimed many of the Churches that come under the purview of the Supreme Court verdict and forcefully occupied them. Litigation continued to release these Churches to bring them under the constitution. Finally a clear verdict was issued by the Hon. Supreme Court on July 3rd 2017. However, the “Jacobites” refused to obey the orders. So tension mounted in several churches. Public media took up the issue to discuss it. This video contains my statements in one of those discussions on an issue related to Piravom St. Mary’s Orthodox Church (26, 9, 2019). The Hon. Kerala High Court ordered the district administration to remove all those who illegally occupy the church and grant access to the priests and people of Orthodox Church that accepts 1934 constitution.
