Collector flayed for attending Christian meet

SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT                                                      KOCHI, November 25, 2011                                                                                                                        The Joint Christian Council has termed inappropriate Thrissur Collector P.M. Francis's presiding over a youth meeting organised by the Thrissur archdiocese of the Syro-Malabar Church.
The council, in a statement here recently, pointed out that the youth meeting had decided to launch an agitation against the Women's Code Bill proposed by the V.R. Krishna Iyer-headed panel and also adopted a resolution against population control which was a long-standing policy of the State and Central governments. Since the Collector was the symbol and representative of the government in the district, by taking part in such a parochial meeting, the Collector had committed a major impropriety.
The council contended that by participating in meetings of religious organisations, government officers would badly damage secularism and democratic principles. It wanted action against the Collector as he had violated the code of conduct of government officials.
The council criticised the nomination of Archbishop Andrews Thazhath by Union Minister Mukul Vasnik to the committee on social justice under his Ministry. The archbishop was a religious leader and his nomination to such a committee was against secularism, the council said.

The Joint Christian Council has welcomed the Kerala High Court verdict upholding the order of the State government approving Mother Superior, Little Flower Convent, Njarackkal, as the manger of the Little Flower Girls High School, Njarackkal, and that the school belonged to the convent.
In its verdict on Thursday , a Division Bench of the High Court restored the Government Order, which was earlier rescinded by a single judge.
The contention of the Mother Superior of the convent was that the Vicar of St. Mary’s Church, who was nominated by the Convent as ex-officio manager on regular basis, had committed breach of trust and claimed that the school belonged to the Church. The government issued the order when the Mother Superior approached the government after she noticed that the Vicar had obtained an order from the Regional Deputy Director of Public Instruction to the effect that the school belonged to the Church.
The government had found that the school was set up and run by the Convent and cancelled the Deputy Director’s order. The government also found that the claim of the Mother Superior was genuine because the Vicar could not produce any document of title or ownership or control over the school except that he was the manager.
The Division Bench’s verdict came on an appeal filed by the Mother Superior against the single judge’s order.
