Rule book says officer must be a Hindu

BANGALORE: The rather unusual situation faced by the Mandya deputy commissioner in not evicting people from the Lakshmi Janardhana temple even after expiry of lease, has thrown up questions about the idea of secularsim in administration itself.

Here's what the act says:

- The state government may, by notification, appoint an officer of the cadre of the IAS to be the Commissioner for Hindu Religious Institutions and Charitable Endowments for the state of Karnataka.

- The state government may appoint an officer not below the rank of a Group 'A' senior scale to be deputy commissioner for Hindu Religious Institutions and Charitable Endowments for one or more districts. The deputy commissioner shall subject to the authority of the Commissioner have powers of general superintendence and control for the purpose of carrying out the provisions of this Act in respect of all Hindu Religious Institutions and Charitable Endowments in his jurisdiction.

- The Commissioner and every deputy commissioner or assistant commissioner and every other officer or servant, appointed to carry out the purposes of this Act by whomsoever appointed, shall be a person professing Hindu Religion and shall cease to hold the office as such when he ceases to profess that religion.

Hindu dharma is implicitly monotheistic intolerance. What is happening in India is a new historical consciousness. Indian intellectuals, who want to be secure in their liberal beliefs, can not understand what is happening. But every other Indian knows precisely what is happening: deep down knows that the answer is a big emerging markets, although at times this response appears to him as threatening.
The only thing we have to fear is fear itself
