Adimali: Joseph Konur, who had built a tomb for himself few decades back, finally committed suicide at his residence at Munithandu in Adimali.

Family of the 70-year-old said he never wanted religious rituals to get in his life or death and perhaps, this obsession to his ideologies led him to take the extreme step.

Joseph built the tomb to express his strong opposition to traditional and religious rituals. He had recently released a book ‘Sathyathinte Vazhikal’ (The Paths of Truth) which was a reflection of his principles.  

The book release function was held in front of his tomb. When his body was buried in this vault, his friend Sathyan Konatt placed a copy of the book with his body.
