Emailed letter of Honourable Justice Markandey Katju, Chairman, Press Council of India, in response to my complaint:
Dear Siddharth and Dr. Ilango,
I have seen the complaint of Dr Ilango and Siddhartha's letter to him.
I entirely agree with Dr. Ilango that the publication in The Hindu that certain flats are for sale to Brahmins only is totally unacceptable in the modern age.The caste system is a curse on our country, and the sooner it is destroyed the better. It is keeping us divided at a time when we must remain united to face the huge challenges before the nation (see in this connection my article on the caste system on my blog justicekatju.blogspot.in and on the website kgfindia.com) Hence the aforesaid publication in The Hindu was in extremely bad taste. I request the editor to take care this does not happen again.
Since Dr. Ilango's letter is being published in The Hindu I am allowing the matter to rest. However, I request Siddharth to publish this email in the Hindu at the earliest.
Regards, Justice Katju
