Kochi, Nov 07

The Kerala High has in a judgement today said that Nuns and Priests could practice as advocates. Justice Balakrishnan Nair has directed the bar council to take necessary steps to conduct the enrollment of Fr Thomas Puthussery and Sister Tessy as advocates.

The Bar Council taking the stand that the priesthood is a full time employment and the nuns and priests hence cannot take up the profession as advocate had rejected their enrollment. Pointing out that the Bar Council’s was not correct the Court said that the priesthood was not a profession but a way of life. Even if one after enrollment as an advocate takes up religious activities he should not be restricted from doing his legal profession, the court said.

    Christians are on the lookout for the vulnerable areas where they can attack Hindus for conversion
    Firstly they took over the education and started teaching moral science and degrading Hindu ethos.
    Secondly they attacked the medical field and sent all the christian girls to nursing and the next generation to the bcome doctors. Now places like Vellore is a conversion centre as sick persons are vulnerable for christian fraud.
    Thirdly they now targetting the legal profession where the litigants are vulnerable to conversion effort. This can better be seen in Tamil Nadu.

    Hindus should ask for a ban on the priests and nuns teaching in schools. For the last many years I was writing about this to many papers. Yet it requires a PIL from out group.
    This present issue should be taken to Supreme courts by our people. Kindly discuss this with the persons concerned.
