Chennai, Aug 24 (BPNS)
Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, M.K. Stalin will inaugurate the diamond jubilee celebrations of an arts college under the Dhamparum adheenam at Myladuthurai on Thursday. This is to remove the perception that the Chief Minister and his party, DMK is against Hindu mutts and adheenams.
It may be recalled that in 2022, the DMK government under Stalin had banned the carrying of the Dharmapuram adheenam seer in a palanquin by his devotees which has been an age old practice. The BJP, RSS and several other Hindu mutts and spiritual organisations came out against the decision of the Tamil Nadu government under the DMK and campaigned extensively across the state that the atheist party, DMK was trying to crush the Hindu mutts and adheenams.
The government later backed off from the decision and the seer was carried in the palanquin. However this incident led to a strong belief that the DMK was totally against the Hindu beliefs, customs and traditions and the DMK wanted to remove that tag, and hence the Chief Minister attending the diamond jubilee celebrations of the college under the Adheenam.
R. Gopalakrishnan, a Hindu activist at Myladuthurai while speaking to BPNS said, “Stalin and DMK knew that the Hindu community is against this government and its continuing anti-Hindu actions. To overcome this he has decided to attend the diamond jubilee celebrations of the college. It’s an eye wash and just to appease the Mutts and adheenams. However, Stalin and his party will never change.”
