Kerala nun rape case: Not responsible if media circulates it, says Missionaries of Jesus after sharing victim's picture

Sep 14 (AZINS) Missionaries of Jesus landed in controversy on Friday when they released the picture and identity of the nun who accused Bishop Franco Mulakkal of raping her multiple times.

Attaching a photo of the survivor sitting with Bishop Franco Mulakkal at a private function on May 23, 2015, the Missionaries of Jesus said that they 'would not be held responsible' if the image went public.

Earlier, Kerala police has asked Bishop Franco Mullakal of Jalandhar diocese, accused by a nun of raping her, to appear before the investigating team on September 19, Inspector General of police Vijay Sakhare said Wednesday.

The decision to summon the clergyman was taken after a meeting chaired by Sakhare, IG (Ernakulam range), which was also attended by Kottayam District Superintendent of Police Harisankar and Vaikom Deputy Superintendent of Police K Subhash amid mounting pressure on police to initiate action against Mullakal. The nun had recently sought urgent intervention of the Vatican for justice and demanded the bishop's removal as the head of the Jalandhar diocese, questioning why the church was "closing its eyes to the truth" when she mustered courage to make public her sufferings.

In a scathing letter to the Vatican that was made available to the media Tuesday, the nun also asked will the Church be able to give back what she has lost. She alleged that Bishop Franco Mulakkal was using "political and money power" to bury the case against him. She had accused the clergyman of sexually assaulting her repeatedly between 2014 and 2016. The bishop had, however, dismissed the allegations as "baseless and concocted", insisting she levelled those as the catholic order had rejected her demand for favours.
