THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan on Friday reiterated that his government was committed to implementing the Supreme Court verdict on the Malankara church row.

Replying to questions at the Cabinet briefing, the Chief Minister said the Supreme Court had brought clarity on the issue earlier.

 

At that time the apex court was not averse to having a platform for discussing the issues amicably.

The Supreme Court has now said that the government should imbibe the spirit of the verdict.

“We are doing the same. We acknowledge the spirit of the verdict. It is true that the government that made an attempt to bring the warring sides across the table and find a consensus. The government had constituted a Cabinet subcommittee to take up the matter. Several rounds of discussions were held with the representatives of the two sides,” the Chief Minister said.

He said people of the state expected resolution of the dispute through consensus. All issues cannot be resolved through use of force.

On Thursday, the Chief Minister told the Assembly that the state government was trying to the implement the Supreme Court judgment in the Malankara church dispute by evolving a consensus between Jacobite and Orthodox factions.

He said that the government would not allow any clashes that would lead to the locking up of the churches.

The SC had lashed out at the State for not implementing its 2017 judgment resolving a prolonged dispute between the Orthodox-Jacobite factions on management of the Malankara’s numerous parish churches.
