Daniel Selvaratnam Thiagarajah is a Sri Lankan Tamil bishop who is the current Bishop of Jaffna in the Church of South India.

Early life[edit]

Thiagarajah was educated at Jaffna Central College.[1]


Thiagarajah was consecrated as the fourth Church of South India Bishop of Jaffna on 21 August 2006.[2] Some members of the diocese objected to the procedures used in Thiagarajah's appointment and took legal action.[3][4] At point the diocesan council severed all links with the Church of South India.[5]
