Followed by the huge outrage, an explanation video of Surendar Nataraj to the media created furore in social media. Surendar Nataraj who belongs to “Karuppar kooottam” youtube channel facing severe hatred from the devotees of Hindu religion after making a video on “Kandha Sashti Kavasam” which is a devotional poem written to praise Lorn Muruga.
Now, after being a subject to legal cases including including Section 153 (intent to cause riot), 259 (p) (defiling a place of worship), 153 (A) (1) (a) (creating hatred between two religion) of Indian Penal code, Surendar has said that he is ready to face them. “I never said anything that “Kandha Sashti Kavasam” didn’t contain. As majority number of people wouldn’t understand the pure Tamil written in “Kandha sashti Kavasam”, I just helped for their better understanding. Not me, it is the poem that abuses Lord Murugan by seeking his help to save their body parts. Lord Murugan won’t save your entire body at once ?? I just clarified how Hindutva organisations are degrading him. If clarifying is a problem, I am ready to face the legal case for that” he said.

This speech from him irked many other cinema celebrities who demanded his apology for his video published in “Karuppar Kootam” youtube channel. Draupathy director Mohan G said that there is no use on arresting them. “Ignoring them in cinema is the only way” he said in his tweet.
நான் இப்பவும் சொல்றேன்.. இவனுங்கள கைது செய்தோ, வழக்கு தொடுத்தோ திருத்த முடியாது.. மொத்தமா புறக்கணிக்கணும்.. சினிமாவில், இலக்கியத்தில் இவனுங்க வேரை பிடுங்கினால் இவர்கள் ஆட்டம் அடங்கும்.. இல்லனா இப்படி கேட்டுட்டே இருக்க வேண்டியது தான். pic.twitter.com/3eWu6lJgCj— Mohan G Kshatriyan 😎 (@mohandreamer) July 16, 2020
“He is acting as if he didn’t understand what crime he committed! He is contradicting himself !!! All medical books shud be condemned if you can’t write about body parts!!! After speaking so cheaply, he has the guts to give an interview like this?! No resentment?!” said actor, Director and TV host Lakshmi Ramakrishnan.

Political analyst Sumanth Raman said that it seems he is not going to apologize for what he did.
On Monday, along with BJP party members, several other Hindu organisations sought immediate action against a youtube channel named as “Karuppar Kootam” which allegedly made derogatory comments on Hindu lord “Muruga”. In a memorandum to District collector K Rajamani, representatives of party’s district unit and the outfits alleged a man in his Youtube channel made abusive remarks against “Kandha sashti Kavasam” which is a song dedicated to Lord Muruga. As a result of these outrage, Nartheegan aka Surendran Natarajan has approached Madras high court seeking anticipatory bail after knowing about the cases filed against him.
