Isha Condemns Malicious Attempts To Discredit Free TN Temples Movement
The Free Tamil Nadu Temples campaign has had an overwhelming response from the Tamil people. Tamil temples are the pride of this Dravidian Culture and the people of Tamil Nadu have expressed that they want them back in the hands of devotees. Sadhguru has given voice to millions of devotees in Tamil Nadu and has found a response in varying degrees from across the political spectrum.
A press meet was recently held to discredit the movement through baseless allegations against Sadhguru and Isha Foundation. We condemn this flagrant act to blemish the democratic attempt of Tamil people to responsibly put forth before an election, what truly matters to them and beats in their hearts. Sadhguru and Isha Foundation have found adoration among millions of Tamil people for the extensive work spread over 3 decades in Tamil Nadu. Repeated attempts by various groups to deter the activity of the foundation have not succeeded because of the tireless and selfless efforts of millions of volunteers across Tamil Nadu. This attempt will meet the same fate.
Pop-up outfits who have not spoken when the Tamil Nadu government submitted to the High Court about the plight of Tamil Temples should not preach to the Tamil people about who should manage temples. Unfettered by attempts of vested interests with the purpose of derailing this peoples’ movement, Isha Foundation will continue to work with the democratically elected government to find a solution to bring Tamil Temples back in the hands of devotees and restore their glory.
