Karunanidhi's remarks on Lord Ram spark legal row

CNN-IBN

TimePublished on Saturday , September 22, 2007 at 00:30 in Nation section


New Delhi: While Karunanidhi gets the Left's support on the Sethusamudram project, an advocate has now filed a case in the Chief Metropolitan Magistrate's Court demanding action against him.

Advocate R K Venkatesh, who is also the Joint Secretary of the (South Chennai) AIADMK, filed a petition in the Court stating that Karunanidhi's speech had been made with "malicious intention" to outrage the religious feelings of followers of Hinduism.

Venkatesh has sought action under Section 295 A and 298 of the Indian Penal Code - requesting the court to direct the Chennai Commissioner of Police to file an FIR under Section 156 of the Criminal Procedure Code and initiate action against the CM.

The complainant criticised Karunanidhi's comments on Lord Ram.

"He is in a responsible post. So don't you think he should be all the more responsible in his words? He's hurt the religious sentiments of a community. Will he have the audacity to address the same to the Muslim community or the Christian community?" said Venkatesh.

Though the Central Government had withdrawn its affidavit filed in the Supreme Court on the Rama Setu-Adam's Bridge issue, the Chief Minister had been repeating his statement. It was a matter of belief that Lord Rama used the Setu to cross the sea to reach Sri Lanka.

Tirumala Tirupati Devastanam (TTD), managing the affairs of the Lord Venketeswara temple, has also expressed its 'unhappiness' over Karunanidhi's recent remarks on Lord Ram.

Without taking Karunanidhi's name, TTD chairman, B Karunakara Reddy on Friday told reporters that the temple administration was "unhappy" over the remarks made against Lord Ram and the epic Ramayan by "some political quarters".

He also advised the politicians to stop making "negative comments" immediately on Hindu Gods and hurting the centuries-old sentiments of people professing the religion.

However, he declined to comment on Ram Setu and the Sethusamudram project.

Myth, I usually refrain from commenting on posts with religious overtones, but I do want to say something here. What Mr. Karunanidhi thinks is his personal belief. He has nothing to prove that Sri Ram did not exist, and he can yell it from the rooftops till he is hoarse, but that will not change anything for whom Sri Ram is an embodiment of their faith and religion. This is not about being politically correct or not being able to speak your mind, or not being allowed to question divinity. This is a matter that concerns the faith of millions of people which he cannot negate simply because he doesn't believe in it.

 Karunanidhi is the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, hence  he can not comment on a issue like an ordinary person. He has to gain a lot by this comment in the TN politics. As an elder politician and as a person in the reponsible post he can not commend negetively  evenif he is not believing it.

No doubt Ram sethu good for india Smile
Mr.Karunanidhi's comments,He is a non-believer, and its true that there's no such a evidence n our hand,Cos Lord ram lived in tretayug,b4 lord krishna (dwaparyug)And its very difficult to get evidence, but Ayodhya ,Lanka n some other name's also mention in Ramayan,the places still there... His statement Hurts Majority of Believers in india. Embarrassed I think a political leader should careful b4 putting such a statements,I dont think he can gain anything from such a comments. Embarrassed
