Chennai: The Bharat Mata statue at the Issaki Amman temple has been restored to its original position this morning. The cover over the statute has been removed by an Order of the Collector.

BJP leader Tarun Vijay who has been spearheading this moment to restore Bharat Mata statue took to social media to tweet “We won. Late night collector ordered to restore statue #Kanyakumari to original position.”

The Bharat Mata statue stands on the premises of Issaki Amman temple, which is 200 years old. The land is a private property and the owner installed a statue and adorned it with a tri-colour saree. They are worshipping her along with the villagers.

Deputy Superintendent of Police Baskaran acting on the orders of the Revenue Department had ordered his officers to cover the statue. 

The compliant was filed by a villager reportedly egged on the Christian groups in the village.

In his petition to the district collector, T Muthukumar, owner of the Temple, said, “The statue was on our Patta land without affecting public peace or law and order. It did not create any communal clashes. My ancestors built the temple, and we have been maintaining the same for generations.”

  1. This is not an all-is-well-that-ends-well story. This story is incomplete unless the culprits are brought to book. Please name each and everyone involved from the top to the guy who wrapped the cloth and press charges against them. Otherwise, expect this to repeat.

    • Absolutely, if not a also case against those involved in misusing the authority of law.
