Kerala MLA George launches ugly attack on raped nun in full media glare
Just Now |
As pressure mounts on Kerala police to arrest Jalandhar Bishop Franco Mulackal on charges of raping a nun, Poonjar MLA PC George triggered a controversy with shocking comments on the victim’s “character”.
At a press conference convened in Kottayam, the Independent MLA called the nun a “prostitute” in full media glare and questioned her allegations. “What do you call a nun who has sexual relations with someone over a two-year period?”
Playing judge, he went on to compare the “characters” of the victim and the accused. “I am not saying that the Bishop hasn’t done any wrong, but when you weigh his character against that of this nun, it is evident she is not above reproach. She says she was abused 13 times. How is it possible that she didn’t have any complaint 12 times and it only became rape the 13th time? A nun is supposed to be a virgin. Like the mother of Jesus. If a nun loses her virginity, she cannot be treated as a nun.”
