A good move

Kerala has made a good initiative.

It has stated that henceforth, PSC applications as well as various job applications for government jobs which do not mention religion will not be rejected. One can also leave the column for religion blank in your school leaving certificate, in case you do not want to take the benefit of reservation.

Let the state spend towards free and compulsory education so that no one lags behind. Just this shall give the nation the most benefit. Let religion not be the basis for giving financial assistance.

This needs to be emulated in the rest of the country too. This will stop politicians from dividing the people and twisting them in their hands for the sake of votes.

While in Kerala, SM Krishna also mentioned that Haj subsidy would be scraped since Muslim organizations have requested so. Even otherwise such subsidies do not reach the deserving candidate.



  1. some good news, I think all subsidies should be scraped if they are based on religion.

  2. A much overdue decision. What began as way to enumerate religion and caste wise betterment,turned out to be a tool to parochialism.

  3. Renu: Great to have back in the blogosphere.. missed you.. Yes. .all subsidies in the name of religion should be scraped..

    Anil: Yes.. it is high time, it is done with specially since we have creamy layers amongst all...
