Vijeyandra Saraswathy condemned for being seated while singing Tamil Valthu

Vijayendra Saraswathi-700-01

Tamil Nadu politicians and Tamil activists have expressed condemnation over Kanchi Sankara Mutt junior pontiff Vijayendra Saraswathi being seated while Tamil Valthu was being played and standing up when the National Anthem was played.

The incident occurred at an event by Tamil Nadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit yesterday, to release a Tamil-Sanskrit dictionary. It is reported that the junior pontiff sat in his chair on the dias with his eyes closed and stood up when the national anthem was played, which led to a controversy.

DMK Working President M K Stalin said "I consider this an affront to mother Tamil, especially when it happened in the presence of the Governor. Vijayendra Swami not standing up when the anthem was played is condemnable."
