Actor Rajkiran and director Gaurav of Thoonganagaram, Sigaram Thodu and Ippadai Vellum fame have condemned Karuppar Koottam YouTube channel for a derogatory video on Kandha Sashti Kavasam, which has hurt HIndu sentiments.
In a statement, Rajkiran said everyone has their own beliefs and it is so wrong to criticism them. He also expressed doubt that there might be some evil designs to trigger unrest with this video.
Gaurav Narayanan said in a video, “Matha pitha guru deivam.. Do you know why deivam has been placed last in this list? It takes a good mother to learn about a father. It is a good father who takes you to a guru. And you need a good guru to show you the path to god.
So, only those who did not get a good mother, father or guru will alone be unable to see God. You will not even be able to see the entity called God. There is no god is what your Karuppar Koottam group’s belief. Let that be so. Our belief is that God exists. What joy do you get in talking obscenely about our beliefs?
You will put forth a thousand reasons to say that there is no God, but to show that there exists a God, we have only one thing — our belief. Do not try to displace it. You will be the ones who will get destroyed. We have seen many atheists like you talking ill about Gods and eventually falling at the feet of Gods in our temples.
Don’t create unrest in the name of religion or in the name of God. You will be destroyed.” The BJP in Tamil Nadu on Tuesday lodged a complaint with the state police chief, seeking action against a video channel in the social media for allegedly posting derogatory remarks about Lord Muruga, stepping up pressure on the issue over which several Hindu outfits are up in arms.
The party also announced a protest on Thursday, asking its members to hold demonstrations in front of their houses with a portrait of Lord Muruga to press the government to act against those behind the YouTube channel “Karuppar Koottam”.
