Karunanidhi doesn’t have any locus standi to talk about ‘culture’!

The Chief Minister Karunanidhi has reiterated his insensitive statements on Lord Rama for the third time, there by exhibiting his arrogance. While reacting to the attack on his daughter’s house in Bangalore and burning of a TN bound bus near Bangalore by some anti-social elements, he has unnecessarily blamed the RSS without any concrete evidence (even the Bangalore city police has not said that) and had also said that the attack exposes the “culture” of Rama Bakthas.


RSS is a socio-cultural organization known for its discipline and democratic principles. Since the beginning, the ‘Rama Sethu protection movement’ has been protesting through democratic methods like, Padha Yathra, hunger strike, picketing and courting arrest on road-rokos, etc, apart from approaching the Courts legally. There was not even a single violent incident in the last one year of continuous protests! This is the “culture of Rama Bakthas!


Whereas, on the other hand, people are aware of the “Dravidian culture”, which has metamorphosed from throwing stones & wielding cycle-chains to using knifes, swords, wooden logs, sickles & guns to planting remote control bombs. Drinking alcohol, abusing Hindus, their religion, Gods & culture and indulging in arson & violence are “value additions” to the Dravidian culture. Crime, Cunningness & Corruption is the hallmarks of Dravidian culture. The state of Tamil Nadu has been engulfed by this sort of Dravidian culture for the last forty years, true to the saying “Yathaa Raja; Thathaa Prajaa” meaning the people follow the ways of the ruler!


Where was Karunanidhi’s “cultural conscience” when his party men were garlanding the statues & portraits of Hindu Gods with footwear & broomsticks?


Where was his cultural conscience when his party men were attacking the Temple priests?


Where was his cultural conscience when the ‘Dinakaran’ office in Madurai was burnt and three staff were murdered allegedly by his eldest son and his goondas?


Where was his cultural conscience when his family was following the ‘Rama Baktha culture’ by prostrating before His Holiness Sri Sathya Sai Baba?


Where was his cultural conscience when his wife & son inaugurated a Kalyana Mandapam in Madurai as per the ‘Rama Baktha Culture’?


Where was his cultural conscience when he allied with the Rama Bakthas (read BJP) in 1999 and enjoyed power at the center?


He has not shown even an iota of ‘real’ cultural conscience through out his public life spanning almost six decades. Let him understand that Lord Rama is a personification of “Dharma”, as told by the Sanskrit saying “Rama Vigrahavaan Dharmaha!” and that the Bakthaas of Rama follow Dharma!


As the attack on his daughter’s house and the burning of a bus expose the Dravidian culture, the Karnataka BJP, being a partner of the ruling alliance, must pressurize the CM Kumarasami to order for a CBI enquiry, so that the truth will come out, whether the incidents were orchestrated or not! The fact that his daughter & son-in-law were not present inside the house at the time of the attack indicates that the attack might have been ‘organized’, similar to the knife-attack on his son Stalin in Madurai Railway station! As expected the Union Home Minister Shivraj Patil has extended permanent security for his daughter and her residence, similar to the provision of security (Z-category) to his Son Stalin, at the expense of taxpayers’ money!
