Director Bharathiraja condemns H.Raja for his statement against Vairamuthu

Lyricist Vairamuthu's latest speech about Aandal lineage had come in for criticism and various people have different angles towards the same. Popular politician H.Raja criticized Vairamuthu for his speech  by saying that it is Vairamuthu's custom to speak bad about Hinduism.

Raja's statement has now been strongly condemned by legendary director Bharathiraja, who has released a statement. 

"En Iniya Tamizh Makkale,

It has been a long time since an individual got the rights to speak what he feels. The freedom of speech has been taken away in Tamil Nadu. This recent incident has been disturbing me daily, and not allowing me to sleep. We should all be thankful and be blessed to live in the same time as Tamil Nadu's pride and legend Vairamuthu lives. He has made every Tamilian proud with his accolades like Padmashree, Padma Bhushan, Sahithya Academy Award and more.

How can people criticise a man of that stature, who has spread the language of Tamil, across borders? Vairamuthu is not a single individual; he is an identity of Tamil people and language. A creator can write or say what he feels, and no one has the rights to comment about that.

Mr.H.Raja, what you spoke was indecent. You spoke ill and bad about a man, who spoke about Andal, through 'Thamizhai Aandal'. Will you degrade a renowned writer like this?

Raja, Thiruppaavai is not Sanskrit, and it is Tamil. Realise that in the first place. You have talked all nonsense about a writer, who should actually be celebrated. Who gave you the rights to speak like that? Will you be able to produce contents like Vairamuthu in Tamil, for the language's development? Can you write an inspirational song to wake up all the lazy people? Don't try to degrade the identity of a proven man.

How can you speak like this, about a man born in a poor family, who rose to a talented writer, introducing Tamil to 23 other languages in the world? Many of his works are part of the academic syllabus for school and college students. Vairamuthu is an inspiration to everyone. Only because of people like you, I have a fear, that India might go to the wrong hands.

H.Raja, be careful the next time when you speak like this. There are lots of people like you in this country. But, identities like Kaviperarasu Vairamuthu are only a handful of people."

Following the controversy surrounding the words of lyricist Vairamuthu during a speech wherein he spoke about Aandal's lineage, industry stalwarts for whom it did not bode well have voiced out in public, expressing their opinions.

Actor Vivekh posted on his Twitter: "தமிழுக்கும் இலக்கியத்துக்கும் திரைப் பாடலுக்கும் பெரும் பங்களிப்பு செய்தவர் கவிப்பேரரசு.அவர் படைத்த”மரங்கள்”கவிதை வனங்களின் தேசிய கீதம்.It pains to see the phase he undergoes.His explanation may kindly b received.கண்ணியம் காப்போம்"

"அனைத்து மத ஆன்மீக உணர்வுகளையும் நாம் மதிக்க வேண்டும்.தாயார் ஆண்டாள் இறையருள் பெற்ற கவி.ஆழ்வார்களில் ஒருவராகப் போற்றப்படுபவர்.யாரோ வெளி நாட்டில் எழுதிய கட்டுரை தேவையற்றது.கவிப்பேரரசு மன்னிப்புக் கேட்பதும்;அந்தப் பெருங் கவியை மன்னித்தலும் பண்பாடு"

Roughly translated, the actor has stated that it pains him to see someone as accomplished in Tamil literature and lyrics as Vairamuthu undergo this scenario, and that Aandal is a poet respected greatly by a religion, which should be respected by all. He also says that a random foreigner's article is irrelevant, and that it is only proper that the great lyricist apologize and be forgiven.
