    Christianity and Islam are in the high in Kerala and these things are quite normal......

    Nothing can be done until there is a public will....

    I have no sympathy for the secular Keralites who don't miss a chance to brag about the high HDI partially maintained by the Gulf Money.

    Is the fine because of lighted candles being a fire hazard or is it because of the girls lighting candles for their religious requirement?

    Whatever, the fine is too steep.

    If candles are banned for Fire Hazard, the question that comes to mind is: does Kerala have 24x7x365 electricity? If not, then are hostel residents supposed to stay in darkness during power cuts?

    Wow am impressed at the mere mention of Kerala you people start jumping with your 'anti-secular' guns - so much for 'unity in diversity'.

    Amit Shah should turn his attention to three states for 'social-engineering' : Kerala, Telangana, and West Bengal.

    Crores of homes across India light diyas and candles on Diwali. Not heard of a fire only due to them. What is good porder, pray tell us.

    It is a naked move to indirectly ban Diwali.

    I would beg to disagree to some extent.

    My aunt died because of a fire from a diya.

    My wife was nearly burnt when she was celebrating Diwali.

    My erstwhile DQ's daughter has been badly burnt and is in RR Hospital this Diwali.

    Therefore, carelessness can cause fire.

    In a hostel, the chances of carelessness is greater.

    However, the point that there can be some religious discrimination behind the diktat is well taken.

    No fire hazard. Only bigotry cloaked under "indiscipline".

    Kerala is a demographic time bomb waiting to explode the demographic situation has since changed drastically, with the Hindu majority now reduced to less than 55 percent of the population, and declining rapidly. Over the past six decades of Marxist and Nehru-Gandhi family rule, entire institutions and government departments have been de-Hinduised to the extent that in some sectors Hindus have no hope of getting jobs or starting a new business.
    Now 55 percent of the Hindu population of Kerala controls 11.11 percent of the state’s bank deposits. On the other hand, the 19 percent Christian community commands 33.33 percent and the 25 percent Muslim population retains 55.55 percent.
    This economic disparity is due to undesirable means that are employed by the minorities under their organised leadership at various levels of governmental structure. With undue preferential treatment received from the administrative machinery, they were able to encroach upon forest lands, bid for various contract works under the government etc . In short, 90 percent of the economic gains went into the hands of 45 percent of the minority communities. It is the outcome of the power of their vote bank and coercive strategies.
