Christian group asks Ilayaraja to ‘kneel down and apologise’ for saying there is no evidence of Christ’s resurrection

A Bangalore based Christian organisation has filed a case against arguably one of the greatest music composers, Ilayaraja, for his alleged comparison between Jesus Christ and Ramana Maharishi over resurrection. The Church has threatened Ilayaraja saying that they will not leave him alone until he ‘kneels down and seeks apology”.

The Christian organisation named Indian Church Renewal has filed a case at a magistrate court in Bengaluru, as the organisation claims that Ilayraja had commented something objectionable against Jesus Christ. As reported by Swarajya, The chief of Indian Church Renewal Gregory Ashok Arokiasamy, in his petition, argued that Ilayaraja’s interview at Google’s headquarters in March this year had hurt the feelings of crores of Christians.

Gregory Arokiaswamy in his Facebook post has threatened of consequences and asked him to kneel down and apologise for his comments made in March. Reportedly, the court has admitted Indian Church Renewal’s petition and decided to hear the matter on 9 October.

Arokiasamy further accused the Ilayaraja of defaming and attempting to create an outrage over the religious feelings of the Christians. He also threatened Ilayaraja with a defamation case under Article 295A.

In his interview at Google headquarters in Silicon Valley in the USA, Ilayaraja had said that there was no evidence to prove Jesus Christ had resurrected. “I regularly watch documentaries on Youtube. It is said that Jesus was not resurrected, the True resurrection has happened to only one person, Bhagavan Ramana Maharishi at the age of 16,” Ilayaraja had said at that event.

A few people belonging to Christian community had protested in March against his comments claiming that the music maestro’s statement had hurt their religious sentiments. Ilayaraja, a born Christian as Daniel Rasappa, has embraced Hinduism in the later part of his life.
