It was a big controversy in kerala when the High Court recruited Municifs (=Magistrates) in Kerala two years ago, entirely composed of upper caste candidates. The reservation norms were totally flouted. Backward caste candidates went to court. High Court Judge Thankapan (Dalit) ruled against the selection, but a full bench of High court approved the selection. THis was challenged in the Supreme Court which stood by the High Court decision.Now, a brilliant journalist P K Prakash from Madhyamam daily (arguably the best newspaper in Malayalam, run by Muslims) obtained the details of the examination results using the Right to Information Act. THe details give shocking informaiton on how the backward caste communities (SC,ST, Ezhava, Muslims, Latin Catholics) were carefully avoided by the High Court interview committee composed of 5 upper caste judges. The backward community candidates who won high ranks in the written exams were mercilessly removed from selection by giveing them unbelievably low marks in the interview, while upper caste candidates who obtained very low marks in the writen tests were given too high marks in the interview and appointed. THis has been happening in all selection process all over the country, but here is the unquestionable proof. And the culprit is none other than the High Court itself where we are supposed to go seeking justice. They dont care for merit they only insist that those who deserve jobs are the upper castes.The story was carried in Madhyamam of 1 August.meanwhile, it is interesting that nobody among the meritwalas are questioning Shasi Taroor contesting a geographically reserved post. (He is in the current position also by such reservation for developing coutries, but nobody even mentions this)Sultan
