Last week there was a big issue of Karuppar Koottam YouTube channel making some derogatory remarks against Lord Muruga. In the said video, Surendar, the owner of the Karupar Kootam YouTube Channel, has criticized the words of Kanda Sashti Kavasam. It is one of the universal praise of Lord Muruga for protection to the body and soul, which is recited in millions of Hindu homes even today.
L. Murugan, the Tamil Nadu BJP party president, held a protest outside his home on June 16. He demanded the Karuppar koottam channel's arrest for insulting Lord Muruga and the Hindu religion and cases booked against them under NSA or National Security Act.
