Karunanidhi is Ravana in Allahabad Dussehra

published on October 18, 2007


ALLAHABAD:: Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi is being projected as “present-day Ravana” by Ramlila committees in the town, which plan to burn his effigy along with that of the demon king on Dussehra.

“After Ravana, Karunanidhi has questioned existence of our Lord. He cannot see Ram from behind the dark spectacles that he wears. It seems Ravana has been reborn as Karunanidhi . We will pay him back in the same coin,” says Abhay Awasthi, a senior member of the Pattharchatti Ramlila Committee.


The committee has also brought out a book listing Karunanidhi’s remarks on Lord Ram over the Sethusamudram Project and this book is being distributed door to door in Allahabad “to awaken the people to the conspiracy of a few to play with the religious sentiments of Hindus”.


The committee says it will burn Karunanidhi’s effigy on Dussehra to spread the message that any word against Lord Ram will not be tolerated.


“The Government at the Centre tried to play with the sentiments of crores of Hindus by trying to give the impression that it would go ahead with the Sethusamudram Project. But it had to backtrack for fear of losing power. The Tamil Nadu Chief Minister should learn a lesson and should immediately tender an apology,” said Kapilmuni Karwaria, the chief of the committee.


In Allahabad, Dussehra is celebrated on a grand scale with lakhs of people participating.
