IAS officer converts religion, says feeling ‘victimised’

Chairman of Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation Umrao Salodiya, image:twitterJaipur, Dec 31, 2015, (PTI) : Alleging that he is being “victimised” because of his Scheduled Caste origins, a senior IAS officer here has changed his religion and applied today for Voluntary Retirement from Service (VRS) in protest against the extension of tenure awarded to Chief Secretary CS Rajan.

“I am Chairman of RSRTC and Additional Chief Secretary for over the last four years and competent for the post of Chief Secretary but the present CS is given 3 months extension by the state government. Hence I cannot work under a junior,” Chairman of Rajasthan State Road Transport Corporation Umrao Salodiya said here.

“I was under the impression that being a member of Scheduled Caste (SC) and senior IAS officer cadre, I would be given a chance to work as Chief Secretary. I feel victimised.

Hence I submitted three months notice of VRS to the state government,” the Additional Chief Secretary rank IAS officer said.

“Now the state government has to take a decision on my VRS cum protest letter within three months. However my retirement is due June, 2016,” he said.

Giving another example of a case in which he filed an FIR with GandhiNagar police station against a judicial officer in 2014, he said that no action was initiated by the police.

“Now I will be called as Umrao Khan,” the officer said.

“Being a Hindu and SC member, I was always victimised. Hence I converted my religion to Muslim by reading “Kalma” in a masjid but members of my family have not changed religion,” he said.

When asked whether he has any plans for re-marriage with any Muslim woman/girl, he said, “No way. I have my family. I feel happy now. I am satisfied that I protested against victimisation”.

Incumbent Chief Secretary C S Rajan, who was to retire today, has been given three months extension by the Raje government.

When contacted, the Department of Personnel Official said he had also heard about the matter on a TV news channel, but so far no letter landed there.


  1. Looking at how he is playing ‘victim’ card, it is quite clear that his new religion would be a good fit for him. They play victim card everywhere from New York to Uppinangady.

  2. For vote bank politics, the politicians side with different religions, castes and creeds to assure themselves of getting enough votes. A time has come to eliminate these quotas and treat everyone as equals. Virtually, all politicians are worried about themselves, their families (and people and the nation is left to be dogs) and are ready to cover up faults, scandals and irregularities for the false notion of party image and unity They are totally wrong, because if a political leader throws the notion of party image and unity in the garbage can and takes punitive actions against the corrupt and/or unpatriotic, their public and national image will enhance by leaps and bounds. The politicians are under the mistaken belief that in saving their comrades, they can fool the people and make a monkey of them. Ultimately, it is the people who will have the last laugh, if the results of the elections in Delhi and Bihar are yardsticks.

    When will Indians realise that apart from religions, there are many important things like education, good jobs, having a broad-mind and a live-and-let-live attitude and realising to appreciate universal cultures, how people live in these countries, how corrupt India is vis-a-vis these countries and associating with people who are well informed and unprejudiced.

    • Nelson Lewis – “When will Indians realise that apart from religions, ….. a live-and-let-live attitude and realising to appreciate universal cultures…”

      Sir, the present government is the creature of religious jingoism by a few ultra elements, misleading the majority! How the creature defy the creator?

      ಸ್ವಾಮೀ, ನೀವು ಕೋಣನ ಮುಂದೆ ಕಿನ್ನರಿ ಊದುತಿದ್ದಿರಿ!

    Sir, Once father of Indian constituency Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar also victim like this poor IAS officer.

    Later RSS political wing BJP took him as role model but abandon his draft of constitution.

    Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar had burnt Manu Smriti. In this meeting Manu Smriti, which is the most cruel symbol of the Brahminic ideology, was consigned to flames in the presence of thousands of people and in front of a large number of policemen.

    BY glorifying RSS political wing BJP, justifies the burning of old book of inequality?

    Jai Hind
