Periyarists Booked for defaming Lord Muruga
Hindu groups unite in Tamilnadu to protect their beliefs
Arrested youngsters said that they were influenced by Periyar EV Ramaswamy
Tamilnadu recently witnessed an attack religious sentiment as a you tube channel supported by the Periyarist ideologies published a video defaming Hinduism. Surendran, a youngster is the lead Periyarists Booked for defaming Lord Muruga. The you tube channel named ‘Karuppar Koottam’ published a video that defames the much revered Skanda Shashti Kavacham.
Tamilnadu police arrested two youths associated with ‘Karuppar Koottam’ the Tamil YouTube channel. Police arrested the presenter of the video, Surendran and another senior member of the group M Senthil Vasan. Based on the issue, a case was filed by the police.
The arrests were carried out on the basis of petitions filed by youth division leader Vinoz P. Selvam representing the BJP in Tamil Nadu. Leaders like M.N.Raja and R.C.Paul Kanakraj have also involved in the case. The speaker Karan Praveen have informed that the issues began with the mockery towards the worship of Lord Muruga, also called as Lord Kartikeya and Lod Skanda.
Karuppar Koottam – The Anti-Hindu Group
It is evident that the you tube channel owned by Karuppar Koottam has crossed all limits. They were eager in hurting the feelings of the Tamil Hindu believers. The Skanda Shashti Kavacham is a hymn chanted in praise of Lord Muruga. The Hindu believers of Tamil origin revere it with high adoration. After receiving the complaints, the cyber crime division of Tamilnadu police arrested Surendran under various sections. IPC sections including 295 (p), 153, 153(a) (1) (A), 505 (2) and 505 (1) (b) were charged. After the registration of the FIR, yet another member of the group, Surendra Natarajan, also surrendered. He then presented himself before the police.
Periyar EV Ramaswamy – The pseudo rationalist
The Arrested culprits said that they were just following the path of the Tamil leader Periyar EV Ramaswami. Periyar was a rationalist leader. Periyar was an Anti – Hindu leader how wore a pseudo secularist leaders mask throughout his life. The demonstrations and repulsions from the Hindu sections of Tamilnadu is giving a clear message. The message that the Hindu of the present day is no longer the incapable Hindu of the past.
The agitations carried out by the Hindu groups in Kerala during the Sabarimala issue in Kerala has also inspired the Hindu groups in Tamilnadu. Otherwise, MK Stalin and DMK who might have stood in support of the Periyar ideologies have condemned the video due to fear of public outrage in this case.
After the BJP victory in Tripura in 2018, people of Tripura pulled down the statue of Lenin. Responding to that, BJP leader of Tamilnadu H Raja made a comment that Just like what people did to Vladimir Lenin’s statue, one day Periyar EV Ramaswamy’s statue would also be pulled down. However, H. Raja himself deleted the social media post. It is now evident that the ideology of Periyar EV Ramaswamy is guiding the youth in the wrong way. He was an intolerant and non-inclusive personality. Following his path resulted in a few youngsters to land behind the bars and a state under chaos.
