Upper caste Hindu Nair outfit Nair Service Society (NSS) on Saturday ruled out joining hands with the BJP for a broader Hindu alliance.

The NSS made its stand clear, following the decision of the backward Hindu Ezhava outfit, Sree Narayana Dharma Paripalana (SNPD) Yogam’s decision to go for an electoral understanding with the BJP.

NSS general secretary G Sukumaran Nair said that his outfit has no political ambitions. The NSS does not want to float a political party after scarifying the basic values. He added that the NSS has been standing for secularism and democracy since its inception. The organization aims at social justice through maintaining an equi-distance from all political parties. The NSS is not ready for a broader Hindu alliance, he said.

Earlier, SNDP Yogam had tried to forge an alliance with the NSS, but it failed to take off.

The NSS and SNDP Yogam hold contrary views on reservation policy. While the NSS wants reservation for the economically backward segment in the upper caste communities, the SNDP Yogam is against changing the present reservation system. Besides, NSS does not favour a third front in which SNDP Yogam general secretary Vellappally Natesan has a greater role.

    The truth is that under Sukumaran Nair, the NSS has become very weak and it is heading for a total collapse. He behaves like the bull in a China shop and still thinks that he is a Nair Feudal Lord. Today, the condition of the Nair community is pathetic in Kerala ( so is the condition of Brahmins). Both the communities lost their land following the Land Reforms Act and are not getting proper jobs also due to reservations. Sukumaran Nair should ideally join the BJP front or he and his organisation will fall by the road side.

      NSS is headed ( he calls himself as Nair's pope) by a mad dog. It should be beaten to death to protect Nairs.

        india's existence,cohesiveness and unity depends on the majority of hindus. when the day comes when hindus will be a miority, india will be balkanised . in kerala this has happened. in north east conversion to christianity and incursion of bengali immigration -illegal - already reduced hindu potion. many hindus feel that time has come to unite themselves to protect way of life. in that context what nair service society is doing is not correct. they should re think on their stand

          Forcible religious conversion is banned in this country but conversion on one's own belief is permitted. But is this rule applied within the cast systems of Kerala. I am aware many people from SC/ST are trained for Brahminic tantras and permitted to do pooja in temples. Is it to be promoted for Inter-cast conversions by one's own option to slowly eradicate caste discrimination.
