A 44-year old nun has been raped and sodmised by Bishop Franco Mulakkal. Not once but 13-times.

The nun tried to reach out to the elders in the Catholic Church to intervene and save her from the repeated trauma.

The elders in the Catholic Church in India and at the Vatican acted deaf, dumb and blind to her repeated complaints and cry for help.

In her desperation and fight for survival she turned to the Indian law after losing faith in the Canon law.

In return for this bold and defiant step, the Catholic Church guided by the accused rapist Bishop Franco Mulakkal started to indulge in a smear campaign against the raped Nun and started targeting all those priests, nuns and laity supporting her in her fight for justice.
