Incidents of temple attacks in TN leave devotees in shock

Two instances of temple attacks in Tamil Nadu in the districts of Coimbatore and Tirupur have left Hindus shocked. In Coimbatore, an Amman temple was vandalized by unidentified people and the murti was damaged. Trishul placed in front of the murti was broken and the clothes used for dressing up the deity were burned.

All this happened even as AIADMK cadre were putting up posters and banners as the CM was scheduled to visit the place for campaigning close to the temple and policemen were patrolling the area ahead of CM’s visit. It has left the devotees shocked as miscreants managed to vandalize the temple even when the area was buzzing with people.

In another incident, villagers complained of the temple in their village being razed to the ground. In Tirupur near Avinashi, a neem tree that the villagers worshipped was uprooted and the ancient temple under it was demolished by some miscreants. The Lingam and the Nandi murtis in the temple were also stolen, the villagers alleged. They have filed a complaint with the local police and requested them to find the murtis and punish the culprits.

Snake worshipped as Naga Devata killed by temple land encroacher

Recently encroachers who tried to usurp the land adjacent to Thandu Mariamman temple in Tirukazhugundram killed a snake that lived in the termite nest and was being worshipped by the devotees. The nest was part of the temple and snakes were said to have taken refuge in it. It was worshipped as Puthu Kovil, a prevalent practice across TN of worshipping Naga Devata.

Anti-social elements who tried to encroach the temple land demolished the nest using a JCB machine and a snake died in the process. This despicable act was done despite the devotees warning them that snakes live there. Outraged devotees informed the police and forest department officials have arrested the JCB driver and the person who instructed them to do it under the Wildlife Protection Act.
