Villupuram: Thanks to timely intervention of Hindu organisations, Move by Christian Missionaries to construct a church in place of a Historic temple was thwarted. The historic Kothandaramar (Vishnu) temple in Gingee, Villupuram District became an object of controversy. Christians suddenly stated that the temple land belongs to them. They produced fake documents. Meanwhile the temple was closed by the Christians, abetted by a Christian sub-collector.

The Hindu Munnani protested against this loot and released a statement that a State-wide protest will be held by the organization. At this point, the District Collector corrected the anti-Hindu stand of the Christian sub-collector and handed over the keys of the temple to the public in presence of Hindu Munnani leaders. Sri Kanchi Kannan, Hindu Munnani functionary, Sri S V Subramaniam, VHP Secretary C Durairanga Ramanujadasar were present.
