The advertisement said that only Hindus need to apply for the posts, which has led to a major uproar.

K. Pandyan, former president of Association of University teachers while speaking to IANS said, “HR&CE department has 36 schools, five arts, and science colleges and a polytechnic college and this is the first time that such an advertisement. has appeared stating that posts are reserved for Hindus only.”
