VHP thwarts Church attempt to desecerate famous Kapaleeshwarar Temple

via HK published on June 14, 2010

Chennai: Attempt by goons of Church sponsored Confederation of Self Respecting Tamilians to enter and desecrate famous Kapaleeshwarar Temple in Mylapore were thwarted by devotees who organised under VHP here.

The provocation arose after a bunch of activists, who gathered on Kutchery Road, declared that they would not give up till they entered the temple, touched the idol and performed their services themselves. Around 30 activists of the Confederation of Self Respecting Tamilians, led by church and Tamil activist M Deivanayagam, had gathered on Kutchery Road, with Tamil nationalist P Nedumaran. Also present were young activists, clad in black t-shirts with Periyar’s picture printed on them.   

Repeated requests by senior police officials not to spark tension in the area fell on deaf ears. “We know we cannot enter the temple. But we will still head towards it”, said Deivanayagam the Church leader.

Vishwa Hindu Parishad activists cordoned off the temple and made it clear that under no circumstances Hindus will succumb to such move to desecrate temples considered holy by Millions of Hindus. Christian organisations are playing with fire by trying to poke into temple affairs and no self respecting Hindu will entertain such interference in any of the temples.

The tension surrounding the temple ended only when police picked up 11 men, including Deivanayagam and Nedumaran, and one woman.
