Students will be banned from applying sandalwood Tilak on their foreheads and wearing rings !

  • Tughlaki report submitted to DMK Government in Tamil Nadu
  • Strong opposition by BJP, as well as Kallar caste Hindus

(DMK stands for ‘Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam’)

The Justice K Chandru committee submitted its report to Chief Minister MK Stalin on Tuesday.

Chennai (Tamil Nadu) – A Tughlaki report has been submitted to the DMK government in Tamil Nadu to eradicate alleged casteism from schools. Under this, it was recommended to ban things like wrist bands, rings or forehead Tilak in school premises. The one-man committee, constituted under retired Madras High Court judge K Chandru last August after two Dalit siblings were assaulted by their relatively upper-caste classmates in Tirunelveli, submitted a comprehensive 610-page report on Monday. The committee recently submitted its report to Chief Minister Stalin.

BJP has opposed this report. Former state BJP president H Raja objected to the recommendation to ban rings and forehead Tilak, calling them ‘Anti-Hindu’. On the other hand, the Kallar caste has objected to the recommendation to remove caste titles, while teachers have opposed the recommendation related to the transfer.

These are the important recommendations in this report of 610 pages.

1. Caste words should be removed from school names.

2. Teachers should be transferred from time to time.

3. Caste of the students should not be written in the attendance sheet.

4. Caste Discrimination, Violence, Sexual Harassment and SC/ST (Prevention of Atrocities) laws should be mandatory.

5. On the administrative front, Chief Education Officers, District Education Officers, Group Education Officers and teachers in Higher and Higher Secondary Schools should not be appointed in places where there is a large population of people belonging to their caste.

Editorial Perspectives

  • What else can be expected in Tamil Nadu under the DMK Government which talks about destroying ‘Sanatan’ ? Such razakari rulers, who rise against the roots of Hindus, should be defeated in the next election by forming a Hindu unity !
  • The secularists and progressives who vehemently opposed school rules in the neighbouring state of Karnataka banning the hijab of Muslim girls will not budge. This situation is scandalous for overly tolerant Hindus.
