Jacobite and Orthodox Church dispute in India ends with a fast
« on: September 12, 2011, 06:57:09 PM »
A disagreement between Jacobite and Orthodox individuals, over who had the right to use church facilities in Kottoor, India, resulted in a unique tactic: both groups took up a fast.

From the article:
Quote
Problems arose on Saturday, when Jacobites were denied permission to enter the chapel to offer the evening prayers by the Orthodox Church.� The Orthodox faction demanded the rival group to abide by the district court order.

Maybe after it they'll finally heal the schism.
