“Karuppar Koottam”, a youtube channel, caught in controversy after the makers of it created several videos allegedly abusing the Hindu religion and the Gods of it, mainly targeting Lord Murugan. One of their recent video on “Kandha sashti Kavasam” of lord Murugan created huge outrage among the followers of Hindu religion. Surendar natarajan, narrator of the show alleged that “Kandha Sashti Kavasam” is abusing lord Murugan and the author of it degraded him with unnecessary requirements.
The video went extremely viral and people who belong to Hindu organisations filed case against him. They demanded arrest against Surendar and asked police officials to permanently ban their youtube channel “Karuppar kootam”.

அதே போல இந்துமக்களாகிய OBC மக்களுக்கு இழைக்கப்படும் அநீதிக்கு எதிராகவும் குரல் கொடுப்பார் என்று எதிர் பார்க்கபடுகிறது.. #OBCReservation
Several political parties of Tamil nadu has come together seeking 50 % reservation for Other Backward Class (OBCs) in post graduate medical and dental seats surrendered by the state for the All India Quota. Throughout the hearing, the parties contented that the central government is only an agent and a counselling authority to fill the seats accordingly to the reservation. Few online users even alleged that Rajinikanth is distracting the OBC reservation issue on behalf of BJP party by voicing out against “Karuppar Kootam” after a week.
