Early life[edit | edit source]

Mohandas is an Electronics and Communication Engineering graduate from College of Engineering, Trivandrum. He worked in the Maharashtra State Electricity Board and Keltron. He is also a Lawyer in Kerala High Court after completing a regular course at Government Law College, Ernakulam. He has travelled throughout India with friends like Gurumurthy, Subramanian Swamy, Ram Madhav and others.[2]

Ideology[edit | edit source]

He came into contact with the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) from childhood and still continue to be a strong proponent of Hindutva ideology in Kerala. Mohandas currently serves as the state convener of Bharatiya Janata Party's Intellectual Cell.[3] Mohandas was the General Secretary (1997) and Vice-president (2006) of Bharateeya Vichara Kendram and had served as General Manager of Ayodhya Printers, a Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh-owned company and also of Janmabhumi for a brief period.

Legal battles[edit | edit source]

He has filed several Public interest litigation cases in Kerala High Court and important of them being his challenge to Government of Kerala decision to donate Rs.5 crore for flood relief in Pakistan.[4]

The Kerala High Court has admitted a writ petition by T.G. Mohandas on November 5, 2015, seeking to declare unconstitutional the provisions of the Travancore Cochin Religious Institutions Act, 1950 which allow nomination of two members each to the Travancore Devaswom Board and Cochin Devaswom Board by a Cabinet subcommittee of Hindu Ministers and election of one member each to the two boards by Hindu MLAs. In his writ petition he challenged Sections 4(1) and 63 of the Act. He pointed out that legally and procedurally, Hindu members formed a Cabinet subcommittee or a group of Ministers. In fact, the Kerala chief minister had been conferred with a right of rejection/modification of any recommendation of the Cabinet subcommittee of the Hindu Ministers.[5][6][7]

He filed a petition in Magistrate Court in Ernakulam in February 2017, seeking an effective probe into the case registered in 2013 on the alleged conspiracy to kill P. Parameswaran by Abdul Nazer Mahdani, an Islamic fundamentalist in Kerala . The case was registered by Ernakulam Central police station on his petition to magistrate court and the probe was handed over to Crime Branch.[8] Because of the failure of Kerala police to conduct a proper investigation, he has approached the Kerala HC for an inquiry by CBI and the case is pending.[9]
