Kerala HC slaps Hindu group with Rs 25K fine for seeking cancellation of quota for Muslims, Christians


By Muslim Mirror Staff

New Delhi: The Kerala High Court has imposed Rs 25,000 fine on the Hindu Sevakendram, Ernakulam North for seeking to declare that Muslims, Latin Catholics, Christian Nadars and Scheduled Castes converted to any denomination in Christianity are not entitled to be treated as backward classes.

The court directed the Sevakendram to deposit the amount in the bank account created for providing financial aid to children in the state suffering from rare diseases within one month.


The petitioner Sreekumar Mankuzhy, Treasurer, Hindu Sevakendram told the court that Muslims and certain sections of Christians are provided with reservation in education, as well as in jobs, in the state, treating them as socially and educationally backward, though the majority of them are not socially or educationally backward. Socially and educationally backward Hindus suffered in Kerala, the Hindu organisation alleged.

Dismissing the petition, the court noted, “We are unable to comprehend how the petitioner has sought a declaration that Muslims, Latin Catholics, Christian Nadars and Scheduled Castes, converted to any denomination in Christianity, are not entitled to be treated as backward classes,”


  1. Only minorities citizens are backwards as they face social discrimination from majority community. Therefore SC , ST and OBC reservation should be given only to Muslims, Christians, Buddhists, Sikhs , Ahmadia community; there is not need to give reservation to Hindu citizens as they cannot be discriminated being in majority . Since their large numbers prohibits them to be socially discriminated hence no need to give them any reservation except on economic grounds .
