It is relieving to know that the patriarch had a narrow escape from the suicide attack at his homeland, Kathi in the district of Qamshi. He is a saintly figure who has contributed much for the unity of people of Kerala.

Kodiyeri Balakrishnan noted in his press release that the suicide attack aimed at the Supreme leader of Syrian Churches including Kerala’s Jacobite church has shocked not only the believers but also the secular population of Kerala.
