Kostanian was a religious figure known as Very Rev. Fr. Zohrab Kostanian.

On November 11, 2005 His Holiness Karekin II, Supreme Patriarch and Catholicos of All Armenians, has issued a Pontifical Order defrocking Very Rev. Fr. Zohrab Kostanian.

From this time forward, he is recognized by his baptismal name of Hrant Kostanian and is considered to be a member of the laity.

Hrant Kostanian was defrocked for willful desertion of his spiritual service.
