Kummanam Rajasekharan urges Governor, CM to expel Chief Secretary urges Governor, CM to expel Chief Secretary

Thruvananthapuram, Nov 29 : Hindu Aikya Vedi General Secretary Kummanam Rajasekharan today urged the Kerala Governor and the Chief Minister to expel Chief Secretary Jiji Thomson from the post since he acted as evangelist encouraging religious conversion to Christianity.

In a statement here, Kummanam pointed out that the Chief Executive of a State acting as a Gospel preacher and encouraging evangelism is a serious offence and a strict violation of the Constitution.

Hence, Governor P Sathasivam and Chief Minister Oommen Chandy should take immediate action against him, he added.

“It is such a time when the Parliament members are engaged in hot discussions about the salient features of the Constitution in connection with the 125th birthday ceremony of Dr Ambedkar, that a responsible person like the Chief Secretary had made such a serious comment on the propagation of a particular religion and violated the Constitution,” he opined.

Mentioning a similar incident, he said earlier the Tamil Nadu Government took action against Uma Sankar IAS for such a serious offence.

Evangelism was a step taken by Christian missionaries to convert people of other religions to Christianity. It is highly objectionable and such a tendency should not be tolerated in India where versatility of religions, cultures and customs exist.

The act of Chief Secretary is therefore nothing but a dangerous one encouraging religious terrorism and thus spreading intolerance in the society.

Reminding the huge protest by secular parties against the Ghar Wapasi, in which people converted to other religions were brought back to Hinduism,  he said those who raised their voices against it now remain silent.

“Even, Kerala Home Minister Ramesh Chennithala warned that the people who are engaged in Ghar Wapasi will be arrested and action will be taken against such deeds. The cultural activists and leaders who protested against Ghar Wapsi also remain silent, which shows their partiality in such issues,” he added.
