Pala Bishop Mar Joseph Kallarangatt, Bishop Geevarghese Mar Coorilos
Kottayam:Geevarghese Mar Coorilos, the Metropolitan of Niranam Diocese of Malankara Jacobite Syriac Orthodox Church has lashed out at Pala Bishop Mar Joseph Kallarangatt over his statement about the existence of love and narcotic jihad in Kerala. On Saturday, he took to his Facebook page and appealed that the altar must not be misused to propagate the politics of hatred.
He also shared another Facebook post backing Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan’s stand on the matter.
Joseph Kallarangatt on Thursday alleged that young girls were largely falling prey to "love and narcotic jihad" in Kerala and said that these tactics are being used to destroy non-Muslims.
Addressing devotees at a church in Kerala's Pala, Kallarangatt said: "They have realised that in a democratic country like India, taking up weapons and destroying others is not easy and have adopted various tactics to target non-Muslims. In the eyes of jihadis, non-Muslims should be destroyed. Two weapons are being employed and that includes love jihad and narcotic jihad."
