Ban preferential Treatment for Christians and Muslims- BVK

via HK published on May 4, 2007

Thiruvananthapuram:Bharathiya Vicharakendram, the premier Think Tank in Kerala has passed a resolution requesting the government and the Minority Commission to withdraw special minority status accorded to Professional Medical Colleges managed by the Christian Pushpagiri Medical Society. The special minority status was issued by the Central Minority Commission consisting of members of the minority community. With this ruling, Christian owned Pushpagiri Medical society can manage Medical, Dental, Pharmacy and Nursing college under its management to recruit students of their choice without merit, collect exorbitant capitation fee, charge addition fees, and disregard quota for scheduled caste and tribes mandated under the constitution. Under the new directive, Christian management is entitled to maintain their policy on admission, quality control, and management
Vote bank politicians and Muslim/Christian appeasing bureaucrats are increasingly eager to invoke special rights, privileges and quota system for Muslims and Christians. It is a terrible decision favouring Christians who control more than 300 colleges including professional colleges in Kerala. This danger approval by the commission granting extra rights to Christians and Muslims over the poor majority Hindus will only help to increase the dominance of Christians and Muslims in the state.Without any benefits itself Christians control over 300 higher education institutions and Muslims control over 200 institutions and is presently dominating Kerala’s education, finance, bureaucracy and wealth. Since they are already a powerhouse in banking, industry, agriculture, education and politics, this special status for Christians will further erode opportunities for Hindus specifically scheduled castes and tribes.
It is unfortunate that the media and politicians have succumbed to vote bank politics. The policy of appeasement and minority quota system is unconstitutional. It will not only discriminate against against Hindus, it will also marginalize those who do not enjoy any reservation. The effect of special minority status for Christians will systematically eliminate Hindus from participating in the admission process based solely on account of their religious affiliation. It is unconstitutional and impermissible.
The government should undertake massive legal, sociological, and public-relations effort to overturn the unjust, immoral decision of the Minority Commission to accord special minority status to Christian management of Pushpagiri Medical Society. Majority Hindus must demand equal protection and opportunity under the constitution
