Ban Conversion and Cow Slaughter, demand UT Hindus

On April 13, Hindus of Union Territory Puducherry led by Hindu Munnani activists including the UT head of HM Sanil Kumar went in procession and submitted a memorandum to Chief Minster N.Rangaswami. The memorandum included demands for enacting a conversion ban law and a ban on cow slaughter. The Hindus demanded a public holiday for Ganesh Visarjan festival in Puducherry. 

A Hindu custom can be belittled, think the Police

Abhiramam is a village near Kamudhi in Ramanathapuram district where two mosques are located on the main road. April 14 being the Tamil New Year’s day, a large number of agriculturists went in a procession to the Kali temple near the fields accompanied by mangala vadhyam (Nagaswaram) to do pooja for their new ploughs before starting their farming activities in the New Year. But the playing music was prevented by the police present in good numbers in front of both the mosques. A clash which took place years ago on a similar occasion was cited as reason for such hindering of an age old Hindu custom. 

Skeletons Tumble out from Tamilnadu CPI

Intra-party machinations and corruption allegations flying thick and fast within the confines of Communist Party of India have come out in the open, with two cadres of the party rushing to the Madras high court to declare the recent state council polls and election of a new state secretary as invalid. R Mutharasan was elected new state secretary by a margin of just two votes, only after three duly elected members were deliberately left out of the list of members. Among the reasons cited for invalidating the elections are non-submission of audit report at the state conference. Corruption charges against the then state secretary D Pandian is the highlight. The petition said he fraudulently misrepresented himself as secretary of South Madras Electricity Workers Union and sold a property belonging to the union to one J Rafeeq Ahamed and "pocketed a sum of 3 crore." Though a state secretary is chairman of Janashakthi Trust, Pandian continued as its chairman, misrepresented to banks and borrowed 12 crore and 'misappropriated the funds', the petition said. Justice K Ravichandrabaabu, before whom the civil suit filed by M Sekar and M Venugopal came up for hearing on April 10, issued notices.
