Dear All
Those people claim themselves are Christians are behind this murder and mafia!Hiring Killers,and killing innocent people had been there from long time ago in Malankara by the same group of people.Hovever this re-investigation I doubt whether they will be able to bring the culprits behind this incident as they are Mafia people! They influenced C.B.I and C.BI. termed this murder report as communal violence!

Enquire the murder attempt to Late Rev.Fr.George Mattammel financed by Wilson Paulose, Leader of Kerala Congress Jacob in the Malankara Varghese Murder

I am amazed at the time it took to re-start the case, when it was almost ended with the culprit/s ready to be arrested. I thought the case was buried under with the blessing of our church, as we did in the past decisions of the court. 'True Christian Spirit'. It is always better to catch and punish all responsible for this cold blooded act. Hope and pray that justice will prevail.

Gripped by Fear...

Whatever CBI invstigates, whatever the final ruling may come, Jacobite leadership is 'Gripped by Fear'...They fear their own people more than CBI, more than courts. Losing confidence of followers is more dangerous than anything.

We know there are 'some' people behind the Gundas and other accused persons. Fr Thekkekkara was only implementing some orders. Everything was planned to the core... even the escape after the daylight murder... Malankara varghese was brutaly murdered in daylight. This murder in noon time was a message for all Orthodox leaders that they would also be killed..The murderers were given places to hide in some holy places.. we know how gundas will live. The churches were made into DEN OF MURDERERS and ROBBERS by the leaders themselves who were supposed to protect them... GOD WILL NOT LET THEM GO UNPUNISHED...

As per the authentic Christian tradition
Church is the body of Christ

The members of the church are parts of his body as Christ is its head

The Catholic Church (not Roman Catholic) represents the fullness of his body.

Majority of the members of the church are the departed ones and those who living now in this world are minority.

Each Local Church manifests the entire Catholic Church and the Bishop (Episcope) manifests Christ.

Bishop is not a representative of Christ but truly Christ itself ,the REAL presence of Christ at the Holy Qurbana

There is no patriarch or catholicose or Pope hierarchically above a Bishop as per the authentic tradition.

Each Local Church with its Bishop is full(Catholic) in nature which is the Holy One Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ.

Among the 12 disciples of Jesus Christ St.Peter was considered as the leader. The Holy throne of the Jesus was given to all disciples .But that is not going to any particular Bishop (Pope or patriarch).Every Bishop Share the same apostolic succession as shared by every disciple of Jesus Christ.
But we can use the position of patriarch or Catholicose or pope for administrative purpose .He is now considered as first among equcals in all orthodox churches(Oriental or Byzantine ) in the world. This system may be good for keeping the Church as a ‘System’ for keeping its tradition, values and unity especially among communities having unique identity or culture.


The tradition is the life and mind of Holy Spirit within the Church which is always going to truth.
For knowing the real tradition we should study Bible, The Liturgy and the Teachings of Fathers .
They should be studied together not separately. If we are study them separately it may lead us to wrong teachings. For example, before we are studying a particular fathers teaching, we should need to know whether it is accepted in the authentic tradition. Similarly for the Bible also. They are witnesses of truth but not truth. No one document in the Church is regarded as infallible document in the church. Only the tradition determines whether a document or a teaching is true or not. If it found to be true in its long run, that document /teaching is considered as authentic teaching of the church.
What is happening in the Jacobite Church they are quoting teachings of some fathers, especially western fathers that patrich (of Antioch) is the successor of St.Peter and he can rule the entire Éastern Church which are not accepted in the tradition (It is like protestants use Bible).They teaches he is the Patriarch of all the EAST. They should realize that this East is the eastern province of the old Roman Empire.(It was like Lord of the East of the ancient Roman Empire. The Lord of the east is not the “Lord” of the entire eastern world. It was within the Roman province).
DEAR JACOBITES YOU MAY NOT JOIN TO THE ORTHODOX FACTION BUT YOU SHOULD REALIZE THE FACT THAT THE OTHER ORIENTAL ORTHODOX CHURCHES (ARMENIAN,COPTIC , ETHIOPIAN etc.) ARE HAVING THE SAME OPINION THAT EVERY BISHOP SHARES THE SAME APOSTOLIC SUCCEESSION AND PATIARCH OR CATHOLICOSE OR POPE IS ONLY FIRST AMONG EQUALS.

ANEETHIKONDU SATHYATHE THADUKKUNNAVAR (Romans 1: 18)

Dear Jacobite brothers who blindy believe their leadership

Please verify the credentials before you put your hope in such leaders who teach DIVISION of CHRIST's body, those who plan murders,... THEY WILL BE EXPOSED FINALLY. GOD ALIMIGHTY will not let go such people unpunished.

WHY BE PARTNERS TO SUCH CRIMES?This is time for reconciliation among all our brethren. WE ARE ONE IN HIS BODY.

Ravi George said...

The Church was united QUICKLY (two times) soon after earlier court verdicts. So many people were diappointed that this time (1995 Supre Court order) it did not happen, even after 15 years... BUT WHY?

A QUICK merger would have again made matters even worse which would only have led to another split and more cases. BUT GOD REIGNS.
We'll see the enemies of UNITY OF CHRIST'S body put to shame before the actual unity takes place. Even traces of rebellion will also be eliminated by the power of God. SABHA IS HIS BRIDE, our faith is that the Husband Christ will make HIS Bride PURE & PERFECT.

This verdict is more damaging than scores of court verdicts on churches. Some leaders in their vain thoughts have calculated that they would be able to manipulate anything by doing evil things. they thought they just needed to make statements and impress media.They played all Games and see how justice is unfolding before our eyes.

Now they must be calculating how to escape the long arm of the LAW. Dear friends, if they turn to God and become Godly, they will be cleansed. There is no other hope...

This message is for all of us including thoise in the Orthodox leadership. if anyone thinks they can manipute or use God's Church for personal benefits, they will not escape God's wrath

mohanmathew said...

Ernakulam CJM Court has given us justice - they ordered furthur investigation into the matter.

Now the ball is in CBI's corner. Here we ahev to be very alert. We have heard about scores cases manipulated. Tehelka magzine had a cover story on CBI cases which diid not see light. Only when they submit the next chargesheet, we'll coem to know that again teh investiagtion is incomplete or partial. So let us keep ourselvs alert, we should follow up matters on a daily basis. Let us pray for justice. Valipadu ( Revelations 6: 10) says murdered saints also pray for justice.

mohanmathew said...

Jacobite camp always successfully played the role of a 'browbeaten boy'. They cried and got sympathy from media, political parties, religious groups, other churches, intelectual and from every corners.
They pictured Orthodox Church as a wealthy, powerful, extreme right trying to devour the churches of 'poor' Jacobites, doing injustice and so..while doing all evils. But Truth cannot remain hidden for ever.

Ravi George said...

The morale in the jacobiet canmp is very very low, at its lowest in its history. There is no recovery in sight.

Aala (church) poayal vere undaakkam, ennal idayan poyaal aadukal chinni chitharum.. aa sthithiyil aanu ippol jacobaya athibhadrasanam.

The jacobiet leaders have almost lost the psychologial war. But don't expect a surrender too soon...

We in the Orthodox Church should always think our Church as a praying, humble, loving Church. WE Should always pray for peace and unity of Orthodox faithful.

I belive it is the rigth time to request HH Patriarch to intevene and save the UNITY of the ORTHODOX faithful in India

One Day the truth will come out. God is there.

Ravi George said...

Please do not be overconfident that CBI would now instigate further and nail the culprits. We should know that if they could put a break on the instigation, they can do it again. So we haev to be very alert here as well as in Delhi.

With Congress in power in State as well as in Delhi, we have to be very careful. There could be a few leaders who would help rebel leaders to get what they wanted. So the battle wil last longer and Mrs Varghese may face a situation to depend on court again to get justice. Hope or people will remian alert

Reni said...

This ruling was on Saturday. The news appeared in newspapers on Sunday. Today is Tuesday. So far there has been no official repsonse from any jacobite faction leaders. jacobite leaders who usually repsond within hours and issue press releases have not said a word about it. WHAT CAN THEY SAY?

Hope Antioch is watching these developments. What do they have to say abouta chruch leader they have anointed in thier Archdioces of India?
Definitely the bishop has not been charged yet. But court ordered that the evidence points fingers and CBI MUST investigate.

In the church case, when the HIgh Cou rt gave an opinion ( NOT RULING) that both should try mediation to mek peace, Jacobiet jumpeda t it and everyday they were camping near PRESS offices. BUT now a long silece has fell on them....

mohanmathew said...

A correction to Reni

The ruling was on Friday and news apeared on Saturday.

When the previous chargesheet was submited bu CBI, a jacobite friend of me said, "See you cannot do us anything, Our Hb is beyond the reach of all, nothing can harm him".

We should dbe grateful God Almighty for having a truthful judge in the court. Some people are already saying th enext step of instigation will again be offtracked.
We should be watchful and pray everyday for justice (see Revelations chaper 6)
Let us also have confidence in our judicial system. We may have to approach the court again if the investigation is not done properly

Malankara Varghese Murder Case: UK Syrian Orthodox Church Council
urges HB Baselious' resignation

LONDON -- A special council meeting of the UK Syrian Orthodox Church Council has decided to request HH Mor Ignatius Zakka I, Supreme Head of the Universal Syrian Orthodox Church for the immediate resignation of HB Baselious Thomas 1, the Presiding Hierarch of the Universal Syrian Orthodox Church in India for his alleged for his involvement in the murder case of Mr Varghese, Perumbavoor (Kerala).
The council at its recent meeting in London decided to request the Pontiff for the Catholicos (Baselious Thomas I) to stay away or go on long leave until his name is cleared in the case. The High Court in Kerala had recently ordered to re-investigate the murder case of Mr Varghese, Perumbavoor. The matter had made sensational breaking news in the regional and English print and electronic media in Kerala.
The Council reiterated that this was because the Kerala Court had publically declared the name of Catholicose Mor Baselious Thomas I to be investigated of his role and CBI had already listed Fr Varghese Thekkekara, Manager of HB Thomas I, Catholicose, as the first person in the criminal list. Hence, the letter said, the suspicion points to the involvement of the Catholicose’s involvement.
The letter dated March 2, 2011 was sent to HH His Holiness Mor Ignatius Zakka I and a copy also to HB Baselious Thomas I and HG Joseph Mar Gregorios, Secretary of the Holy Synod.
