Only Hindus are eligible to compete for both teaching and non-teaching posts: HR&CE Department

At the Arulmigu Kapaleeswarar Arts and Science College, Kolathur, on October 18 at 10 am, the department announced on October 13 that BCom, BBA, BSc Computer Science, BCA, Tamil, English, Mathematics courses for Assistant Professors, as well as Physical Walk-in Interview for Teaching Director and Librarian Posts. It will be held in the college campus at Kolathur. In the afternoon, it will conduct walk-in interviews for 11 non-teaching posts including Office Assistant, Junior Assistant, Chowkidar and Sweeper.

As per the advertisement, only Hindus are eligible to compete for both teaching and non-teaching posts. According to teacher unions, denying opportunities in the name of religion is a violation of the Constitution. M Maharaja, a former special public prosecutor for HR&CE, said the advertisement was wrong since Section 10 of the HR&CE Act states that All employees must be devout Hindus who can only be related to temple employees.

Though the HR&CE department oversees 36 schools, five arts and science colleges and a polytechnic college, according to former president of the Association of University Teachers, K Pandian, this is the only time enrollment has been sought from only Hindus. According to T Veeramani, head of the Tamil Nadu Government Collegiate Teachers Association, the requirement to apply only by Hindus is unacceptable. HRD and CE Minister P K Shekhar Babu and Commissioner J Kumargurubaran were not available for comment following repeated attempts. From 2021 to 2022, the HR&CE department will open four new colleges, including Kapaleeswarar College in Kolathur.
