Bishop Franco Mulakkal, who is accused of raping a nun from the Missionaries of Jesus congregation and out on the bail by Kerala High Court, was given grand welcome in Jalandhar on Wednesday. In his grand welcome, he was garlanded and showered with rose petals. When Franco reached many supporters have recited prayers in support of Mulakkal and Catholic Church.
This welcome to alleged rapist Franco was in the sharp contrast to the #MeToo wave that swept the country recently and resulted into the resignation of MJ Akbar, the Minister of State – External Affairs.
Considering the #MeToo wave, many people expressed their shock over a grand welcome.
Two prime time news:
MJ Akbar resigns for charges of molestation.
Franco Mulakkal welcomed with garlands upon his release on bail.
Pssst! There is no correlation between the two.
