Thirumavalavan, the chief of the Viduthalai Chriuthaigal Katchi (VCK), has once again poured venom on the Hindu religion, arguing that building temples are a profitable business.
While speaking at a book release event in Chennai, Lok Sabha MP Thirumavalavan said, “Building a temple is a business. I am not joking. Building temples, unlike any other business, is the most profitable and provides the highest income.”
Thirumavalavan added, “Which other business is more profitable than the income generated by the Tirupati temple? What are the temple’s income and expenditure? People donate money to the Tirupathi temple. People pour money into the Ayyappan temple.”
“This is true even for small temples, unlike big temples like Ayyapan and Tirupathi temples. You plan and occupy any land, build a small temple, and see how big (wealthy) you become in ten years,” he further continued.
Later, while addressing the reporters in Krishnagiri, provoking racism against North Indians, Thirumavalavan said, “More people are coming to Tamil Nadu from northern states. It causes fear. The Tamil Nadu government should pay more attention to this regard. Northerners should have the right to vote in their own state and not in the state they migrate to. If the northerners get voting rights in Tamil Nadu, the individuality of the state will be taken away.”
He further said, “The Governor of Tamil Nadu is working against the Government of Tamil Nadu. He should be taken back from Tamil Nadu. Atrocities committed against tribal people must be stopped. We will request the Tamil Nadu government to enact a law against honor killing.”
