The Conversion Agenda

"Freedom to convert" is counterproductive as a generalized doctrine. It fails to come to terms with the complex interrelationships between self and society that make the concept of individual choice meaningful. Hence, religious conversion undermines, and in extremes would dissolve, that individual autonomy and human freedom.

YSR's Step-Brother to take over Tirumala

The game for the coveted post of TTD Chairman (Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam) took an unexpected turn today due to Indian President A PJ Kalam rejecting Office-of-profit bill. Due to 'over competition' Chief Minister Mr. YS Rajasekhar Reddy, an evangelical Chrisitian himself didn't appoint the new board. As President Kalam rejected the Office-of-Profit bill, the incumbent Chairman TS Subbarami Reddy's fate hangs in balance since he happens to be an MP and member of Union Cabinet. Another strong contender for the coveted post Rayapati Sambasive Rao is also effected as he happens to be MP of Guntur.

This left the field open to TUDA chairman and YS Rajasekhara Reddy's step-brother, Mr. Karunakara Reddy who happens to be an evangelical Christian. Mr. Karunakar Reddy has been plotting to become TTD chairman ever since Rajasekhar Reddy became Chief Minister of AP. He has drawn an elaborate plan to make some amendments to TTD constitution so that the richest temple's money could be used for many non-Hindu causes.

The decision is expected in a week.
