Respected Mr. Collector,
In a country where 83% of the people are Hindus and where the nation-state India is also an ancient timeless civilization, it is but natural that the national ethos should derive from the culture and religion of its majority populace. This is how it is around the world, without exception, especially in all Christian and Muslim nation-states.
The Vana BhadraKaliamman Temple is located inside the Madurai General Hospital and if the homam is performed inside the temple the Collector, no mater how exalted he thinks he is, has no voice in the matter. I would urge you to tackle dengue and other diseases, garbage disposal, hospital cleanliness, and issues which fall within your jurisdiction.
This country's secular polity has allowed the Church to run amok in hospital services and educational institutions. Every christian hospital and school and college has not only the Cross inside every ward and classroom, they also have chapels where Chrsitian services are held during the day.
The adherents of Christianity and Islam, no matter where they are placed - from the humblest of postions in government service to the most exalted offices in the country will actively serve the cause of their religion and co-religionists. Hindus alone serve secularism, constitutionalism and infamous idiot Hindu tolerance.
The pernicious judicial observation that government offices must not carry religious symbols was made by Justice Ibrahim Khalifullah now elevated to the exalted position of Judge Supreme Court. And do you know Sir that in the Madfras High Court, every Friday all Muslim judges rise at 12.30 PM - one hour before lunch - to offer namaz? So how secular is the judiciary and hiow double-faced Jusitce Ibrahim Khalifulla's observation?
Newspaper reports also carried the news that the incumbent CoP Chennai had instructed police offices not to perform Ayudhapooja. Islam and Christianity have been allowed to gain ascendancy which reflects in these anti-Hindu pronouncements becasuse you Sir, an IAS officer and I hope a Hindu, insulted the religious sensibilities of the majority populace of this country and thus served secularism.
In stark contrast, your colleague, the obnoxious Umashankar IAS formerly Chairman Co-optex, removed the pictures of all Hindu gods from Co-Optex offices but Umashankar IAS is himself is a professed evangelist who has gone on record saying tsunami happened because people are worshipping false gods.
If you say homams cannot be perfomed in hospitals then make sure we dont have padris and nuns using distress in hospitals as hunting ground for harvesting Hindu souls for Jesus and also make sure Umashankar IAS does not bare his Christian fangs when he continues to remain a serving IAS officer.
I believe you Sir have threatened to order an enquiry into the 'mindless event'. You have described the performance of homams inside the temple as a mindless event. What is mindless Sir is your tasteless observation. And as long as the TN government does not order enquiry into Umashankar IAS for being a christian evangelist you, as government servant have no moral or any other authority to question homams inside temples.
A temple is not sarkari 'baap ka maal'.
