AIR programme showed Hindu gods as ‘oppressors’

Subhashitham’, a programme presented by scholar Dr C N Parameswaran last week, had allegedly depicted the mythical war between ‘devas’ and ‘asuras’ as the fight between the upper class, who came from outside the country, and the indigenous people.

The BJP alleged the morning programme, which has a wide audience, portrayed Hindu gods Lord Rama and Lord Krishna as “oppressors” and had thus hurt the community’s sentiments.

BJP state secretary B Gopalakrishnan said he would soon file a case against the scholar as well as the AIR staff for hurting the sentiments of believers.The leader also asked how he could be a just silent listener when someone tried to depict his favourite gods in poor light.

“I am a hardcore Sri Krishna devotee. How can I simply sit and listen when someone says Sri Krishna and Sri Rama are not Indians and they are outsiders and they came to the country and oppressed the indigenous people here?” he said.

He also said Parameswaran, who presented the programme, could air his views in a public place but cannot use a platform like AIR for hurting the sentiments of a community.

Gopalakrishnan said he would soon file a case against the scholar as well as the AIR staff for hurting the sentiments of believers and for attempting to destroy religious harmony.

He also said he would upload the recording of the programme on the social media.

Denying the charges, station director in-charge M N Rajiv said there were no anti-Hindu contents in the programme.
