NSS and SNDP unity fails once again

published on February 18, 2014

KOTTAYAM: Thanks to NSS and SNDP leadership’s myopic views, the much-admired NSS-SNDP unity collapsed once again. This time also the drift is in the name of proposed Devaswom recruitment board and reservation issues surrounding it.

According to NSS , they are against giving the responsibility of Devaswom recruitment to the PSC, it had no opposition in following the reservation procedures which ensured 50 per cent of the seats to all among the Hindu communities on merit and 32 per cent to those belonging to the reserved communities.SNDP was against passing Devaswom bill and they have expressed their opposition towards it.

The first major unity effort was in the 1950s when NSS founder Mannath Padmanabhan and SNDP Yogam chief R Shanker launched  ‘Hindu Mahamandalam’ in December 1950. The experiment failed over the issue of the presidentship of Travancore Devaswom Board. In 2005, then NSS general secretary P K Narayana Panicker and Natesan joined hands “to fight for the rights of majority community”. It too lasted only a few years and the villain was graft in Devaswom boards.

When Muslims and Christians can govern their religious institutions , Majority of the temples in Kerala are under the control of government. Where temples are governed by Hindu organisations , infights and issues in the name of Nair and Ezhava is unheard of. The temples which are supposed to be the unifying force among various castes itself is being used by the government to cause rift among them along with looting the crores of income generated from these temples.

Tail Piece: As NSS-SNDP tie up is officially broken Indian National League a Muslim organization is approaching SNDP to form a front of backward Hindu’s and Muslims!
