There is speculation that Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan will implement the Church Bill in the state. Meanwhile, Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church head Basilios Marthoma Mathews III appealed to the Governor on Sunday. He has urged not to give his assent to any ordinance or law regarding the Church Bill.

Let us tell you that the Orthodox and Jacobite factions of the church have been in conflict since 1970 over the control of some churches in the state. The feud between the two factions intensified after the implementation of a 2017 Supreme Court order in which the Orthodox faction was given possession of over a thousand churches and their associated properties.

However, due to opposition from both the groups, this order has not been fully implemented yet. Matthews III said there were rumors that a church bill would be introduced. He pointed out that the Supreme Court order is the law of the land and asked the Governor to use the power with his discretion if any law or ordinance is brought to circumvent the apex court’s decision in favor of the Orthodox Church.

“If any law or ordinance against that law is placed before you (the Governor) for approval by the ruling government of Kerala to disregard the 2017 judgment in favor of the Malankara Orthodox Church,” the Orthodox Church chief said at an event here. So, we strongly believe that His Excellency will use his discretion to give appropriate justice to the Malankara Orthodox Church.’

Here, the conservative group is adamant on its demand that the 2017 Supreme Court order be implemented. The Jacobite faction has alleged that the other group is misinterpreting the order and illegally taking over their churches.
