Shocking bigotry from Tamil Nadu: ‘Stop religious preaching’ hoardings come up in Tirunelveli village

Tirunelveli: In a rather shocking development from Tamil Nadu, mysterious hoardings have come up in Alangulam village near Tirunelveli that warned people from conducting religious preachings and entering the village.

The hoardings suggest that no religious preachings would be allowed in the village and if instructions are violated, action will be taken against the violators by the villagers.

Images of the hoardings were shared by the Hindu Munnani group on their official Twitter page and they called it their moment of awakening.

As the caption in their post on the social media platform suggests, the fringe group called it their moment of awakening: “Awakened Hindu community… For the 36 years of Hindu Munnani”.

The motive behind these hoardings is believed to prevent Christian missionaries from allegedly entering the village and organising conventions and prayer meetings as can be seen in nearby villages and in the hinterlands of Tamil Nadu. However, this is the first time such hoardings have come up in villages.

When approached by Times Now and asked what they meant by ‘Hindu awakening’, the group said that Christian missionaries are trying to propagate their religion in the state, especially in the southern part of Tamil Nadu, and that villagers have had an “awakening”.

The Hindu Munnani group has absolved itself from the episode and have put it on the villagers. However, they have claimed that this is no doubt an achievement for them for their 36 years of work.

Interestingly, when a Twitter user named ‘Ram’ asked the group if they could distribute the hoardings across villages, the group said, “It’s not the matter of just putting up boards. It should come by awareness, the people by feeling should arise. It’s Hindu Munnani’s work.”

Religious preaching in a constitutional right and it cannot be curbed. The police are looking into the matter.
