Neighbourhood News Desk/ Simran Nijhawan: A parishioner who rattled the Kerala-based Malankara Orthodox Syrian Church by exposing the sexual abuse of his wife by a group of clergymen for the last 20 years, is devastated. Sebastian (name changed) had taken up the matter with the church authorities with the hope that they will solve the issue as per laws of the Church.

I want my wife back. I don’t know how she will be able to cope with her life after this character assassination. I am an ordinary person. I didn’t have big dreams. I only want my family to be happy. I don’t know whether the Church will allow us to live in peace,” Sebastian said.
