CHENNAI:  An advertisement by the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowment (H&CE) for various posts in its college inviting only Hindus has created an uproar in the state with several individuals and organisations coming out against it.

The advertisement, which appeared in various publications on October 13 for various teaching and non-teaching posts for Arulmigu Kapaleeswarar Arts and Science College in Kolathur, has stated that the posts are ‘Only for Hindus”.

The HR&CE department is opening four new arts and science colleges, including Kapaleeswarar college in Kolathur from 2021-22. In the advertisement, walk-in-interview for the post of assistant professors to teach Bcom, BBA, BSc Computer Science, BCA, Tamil, English, Mathematics courses as also for Physical education director and librarian posts. Walk-in interviews for the post of non-teaching staff, including office assistant, junior assistant, watchman, and sweeper were also sought.

The advertisement said that only Hindus need to apply for the posts, which has led to a major uproar.

K. Pandyan, former president of Association of University teachers while speaking to IANS said, “HR&CE department has 36 schools, five arts, and science colleges and a polytechnic college and this is the first time that such an advertisement. has appeared stating that posts are reserved for Hindus only.”

He further said that a department that is run by the government cannot discriminate on the grounds of religion and make candidates from other religions ineligible.

Pandyan cited the example of Muslim Service Society Wakf Board College in Madurai which has several non-Muslim faculty members. He said that the government can run the colleges only on the basis of what is written in the constitution.

      Didn’t you read the article, stupid pagan a55hole? “Muslim Service Society Wakf Board College in Madurai which has several non-Muslim faculty members.” “He further said that a department that is run by the government cannot discriminate on the grounds of religion and make candidates from other religions ineligible.” Don’t you ever get tired of making a fool out yourself, sh1t eater? You just spam your RSS IT cell cow dung without thinking, Nazi monkey worshipper doesn’t know a thing about the Indian constitution.

      Muslims should make signs “Hindus only” for the cleaning our toilets and gutters. That’s why all these malnutritioned Hindu bhikaris escape bhangi mata to come to Muslim countries.

  3. Advertisement is wrong as it is not about Pujari or Maulvi post but about assistant professor or teaching posts of non-religious posts . Here in Middle-East Arab muslim countries we have Hindu , Muslim and Christian teachers and doctors as our colleagues including Hindus from lndia , Bangladesh & Sindh ( Pakistan) . Arab Muslim countries don’t use words like ” Muslims ” only for teaching & medical or any other posts . There are many Hindus in medical and university teaching posts and Christian nurses & technicians as well in Dubai / UAE , Saudi Arabia , Kuwait , Oman etc.
