i have commented before about how there are no kerala christists in the armed forces. they are happy to let hindus die protecting the country. they, on the other hand, killed off the kottayam-sabarimala railway line because "the line would require take-over of christist property, and christists get nothing from it". i paraphrase, but that's pretty much what oommen chandy's christist government said. the sabarimala link would be primarily of benefit to hindu pilgrims. i posted this material on this blog some time ago.

Subject: Muslims in the Defence forces

Rajeev, the Indian army apparently has been asked about the number/position of muslims in its fold.
and the Army has declined to provide such a data.
But the worst part is that the airforce and navy have given the required data. Sounds scary.
