Vairamuthu's speech on Andal sparks controversy, expresses regret


Lyricist Vairamuthu found himself embroiled in a controversy after a speech he gave was published under the title 'Tamizhai Aandal' in Dinamani. In the course of his speech, Vairamuthu cited the research of an American scholar who said that Andal belonged to the Devadasi community and had lived and died at the Srirangam temple in Tiruchirappalli.

This has created a huge ruckus among Hindu outfits and BJP leader H.Raja demanded open apology from lyricist Vairamuthu. Even police force has been stood outside Dinamani office. After coming under attack from several side, lyricist Vairamuthu on Tuesday said he had not intended to hurt anyone and had only quoted from a book published by the Indiana University.

In his apology, Vairamuthu clarified that what he only talked about the greatness of Andal in his article Tamizhai Andal and the controversial quote is not his opinion. “I only quoted a line from the research work of Indiana University. I don’t have intention to hurt the sentiments of anyone”, said Vairamuthu in his statement and conveyed his regrets if his article hurt anyone’s feelings.
