Kummanam seeks action against Chief Secretary

Kummanam Rajasekharan, general secretary of the Hindu Aikya Vedi, has take serious exception to the controversial speech on evangelisation made by Chief Secretary Jiji Thomson on the occasion of the bicentenary of the Orthodox Theological Seminary on Thursday, and has called for his ouster.

In a press note on Friday, Mr. Rajasekharan said it was unconstitutional for a person holding such august position in the State administration to be the campaigner for one particular religion and to exhort for the conversion of people from other religions to Christianity.

It was unpardonable when a Chief Secretary expresses religious intolerance and makes speeches that generate hatred, he said and called upon the Governor to take action against Mr. Thomson.

When Parliament was discussing the high moral values embedded in the Constitution in connection with the birth anniversary of B.R. Ambedkar, the Kerala Chief Secretary who has to uphold the sanctity of the Constitution had blatantly breached the Constitution. Those who made a hue and cry on ghar vapsi are silent on Mr. Thomson’s speech, he said.
