BRAZEN ANTI-HINDU AGENDA OF MK STALIN GOVT
The MK Stalin headed DMK government has made no bones about brazenly following an anti-Hindu agenda since it assumed power on May 2nd in Tamil Nadu. In a short span of three months it has singularly attacked Hindu educational institutions, infested the Tamil Nadu Textbook Board with anti-Hindu members, removed saffron clad portrait of saint-poet Thiruvalluvar from Tamil Nadu Agriculture University Library, appointed rabid evangelist Maoist sympathiser Pastor as Tamil Nadu Public Service member, broken ancient Hindu temples in Coimbatore, allowed a spate of vandalism in ancient Hindu Temples, proposed a scheme to loot Temple jewellery, passed diktat to have women priests and Archanais to be conducted in Tamil instead of Sanskrit in ancient Hindu Temples.
ARCHANAI IN TAMIL TO BE LAUNCHED IN ANCIENT TEMPLES
PK Sekarbabu, the Minister of HR&CE on Sunday, said that the DMK government would begin Archanai in Tamil at the ancient Kapaleeswarar Temple in Mylapore from coming Wednesday according to media reports.
PK Sekarbabu said that the move for Archanai in Tamil would be launched initially in 47 ancient Temples. He stated that potri would be chanted in Tamil on demand by priests. The ancient Temples would have a list of priests displayed in a board who would chant the Sanskrit mantras in Tamil.
That’s not all, the current DMK government also tried to float a balloon through proxies attempting to change the name of Hindu Religious & Charitable Endowment (HR&CE) Department as simply Charitable Endowment Department sans the words ‘Hindu Religious’. This trial balloon burst after a huge uproar by the Hindu community against the illegal move. The DMK government made a show of claiming to order a show cause notice to the concerned HR&CE Superintendent in Nagercoil, Kanyakumari. Pertinently, the Tamil Nadu government controls and manages under the HR&CE over 38,400 Hindu Temples and Hindu religious establishments.
ANTI-HINDU AGENDA UNDER GARB OF FAKE PROMOTION OF TAMIL & SOCIAL REFORM
All of these anti-Hindu, anti-Sanskrit measures have been carried out by the DMK government under the hypocritical claim of demolishing illegal structures, promoting Tamil language, promoting rights of women and Dalits. Strangely the so-called reformist measures vanish in thin air when it concerns Mosques and Churches in Tamil Nadu.
WHY NO AZAN/ NAMAZ IN TAMIL IN MOSQUES?
There is no whisper from the MK Stalin government to introduce Azan or Namaz in Tamil in Mosques instead of the traditional Arabic, starting from the famous Triplicane Big Mosque in Chennai. Ironically, Sanskrit having largely common words with Tamil is more easily understood by Tamilians, Hindus or Muslims, than the alien Arabic language which has no relevance in Tamil Nadu. But CM MK Stalin and rest of the DMK/DK bigwigs would not even dare to conceive the idea of ordering Azan and Namaz in mother tongue Tamil instead of Arabic. Their love for Tamil language and culture disappears in thin air when it comes to Islamic practices.
It is also alleged that in some Muslim dominated areas, the DMK government has done away with Tamil, sacked Tamil teachers and adopted Urdu by employing Urdu teachers in government schools.
DMK HYPOCRISY OF ADVOCATING WOMEN PRIESTS IN ANCIENT TEMPLES WHILE SILENT ON MUSLIM WOMEN’S RIGHT TO PRAY IN MOSQUES & BECOMING MAULANAS?
Similarly, Sekarbabu had mooted to remove traditional ancestral Archakas in Tamil Nadu’s ancient Sampradaya Temples and replace them with women and other priests by passing some sham half-baked one-year Archaka training course. Sekarbabu and the DMK/DK gang does not dare to give Muslim women access to all Mosques in Tamil Nadu.
Muslim women’s fundamental right to pray in Mosques is never an agenda of otherwise vocal top DMK leader, Kanimozhi. The DMK feminist cannot dare to even think of training Muslim women to become Maulvis, Maulanas or Imams.
96% OF ANCIENT HINDU SAMPRADAYA TEMPLES HAVE TRADITIONAL ANCESTRAL NON-BRAHMIN PRIESTS
Notably, for all the propaganda against Brahmins occupying Temple priest posts, the fact is out of the 38,409 Hindu Temples under the control of HR&CE, hardly 1,600 of them (about 4%) have Brahmin priests. The rest of the 96% ancient Hindu Temples are officiated by hereditary non-Brahmin priests.
All Shakti Amman Temples have traditional non-Brahmin Archakas and are managed by non-Brahmins. There are also several traditional Temples in Tamil Nadu where women have been for centuries priests according to the Agama shastras. So, the DMK drama of trying to break traditional Agama Shastras under the garb of equal rights to women is clearly a hogwash.
DMK GOVT TURNS BLIND EYE TO PROTEST AGAINST APPOINTMENT OF NON-DALIT BISHOP IN SALEM
Neither is the MK Stalin government bothered about the ongoing agitation by ‘Dalit-Christians’ demanding equal rights from the Catholic Church in Tamil Nadu. The ‘Dalit-Christians’ are protesting against appointment of a ‘non-Dalit Bishop’ for Salem Diocese by the Vatican. No governmental intervention here by the DMK for ensuring equal representation of the under privileged in Church administration.
Therefore, the DMK/DK anti-Hindu group run their Hindu hatred agenda under the garb of fighting a non-existent Brahminical oppression. Their main target is wiping out Sanatan Dharma. Their love for Tamil language, Tamil culture, Tamil pride and social reform is really a hoax.
The DMK bigwigs celebrate British Christian Evangelists like Robert Cladwell, Hindu-haters EV Ramasami and M Karunanidhi. They seldom pay respects to the greatest ever Tamil sons, Bharat’s heroes Rajaraja Chola-I and Rajendra Chola-I who apart from being great Emperors gave Sanatan Dharma scores of magnificent ancient Temples, the most celebrated of them being the unparalleled marvellous Brahadeeshwarar Temple at Tanjavur.
