Tamil Nadu: UPA MP says Hindu temples are places with ‘dirty idols’, complaint lodged

Following the anti-Hindu statements, Hindu groups such as Hindu Munnani have lodged complaints in different police stations in Ariyalur district demanding the registration of an FIR against Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) leader Thol Thirumavalavan.

In a shocking incident, Thol Thirumavalavan, the Member of Parliament from Chidambaram constituency of Tamil Nadu, has made offensive statements against Hindu temples triggering a massive uproar across social media, reports Swarajya.

Thol Thirumavalavan, the founder of the Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK), who fought the 2019 Lok Sabha elections under a UPA-DMK alliance ticket, on Wednesday made a derogatory reference to Hindu temples at an event in Puducherry.

Reportedly, in a video that has gone viral on social media now, the UPA MP Thirumavalavan can be seen addressing a meeting for “opposing Sanatana Dharma education policies” and mocking the Hindu temples in front of the audience stating “if the building has a dome, it is a mosque; if it is tall and straight, it is a church; and if it has dirty idols/dolls, it is a temple”.

One Congress from Tamil Nadu, Americai V Narayanan, had tweeted that he had conveyed his displeasure to Thirumavalavan and the latter has stated that the derogatory statement was made ‘in a flow’.
