If such an eligibility criterion exists, certainly it can\'t be a secular Constitution !

I have never heard of that requirement. We have seen in recent government some key positions were assigned to NRI\'s who are not christians. I don\'t think that\'s a requirement at all in USA. I am not sure of that but I need to verify it.

Sorry Sir, your question is based on totally wrong premises. If that was the condition, how come Obama administration has appointed so many Hindus and Muslims and that too in very high positions. Latest appointee was a Kashmiri Muslim for a very senior position. Is not Jindal is a Hindu and happens to be a member of the Senate?
