Cops to act against Karuppar Koottam YouTube channel

Chennai: Amid demands from various quarters, the police are reportedly planning to take against video channel in the social media for allegedly posting derogatory remarks about Lord Muruga.

The video channel Karuppar Koottam recently released a video, which had derogatory comments on Kandha Sashti Kavasam. This triggered protests and condemnations from people from various walks of life.

The BJP in Tamilnadu on Tuesday lodged a complaint with the State police chief, seeking action against the video channel. The party also announced a protest on Thursday, asking its members to hold demonstrations in front of their houses with a portrait of  Lord Muruga to press the government to act against those behind the YouTube channel.

The channel has come under fire for making denigrating remarks about Kandha Sashti Kavasam, a Tamil hymn sung in praise of Lord Muruga, son of Lord Shiva, with some of the videos going viral in other social media.

BJP State president L Murugan slammed the YouTube channel for ‘maligning’ Hindu practices and highlighted the sanctity of  Kanda Sashti Kavasam and its significance for devotees.
