Obviously, Rajaraja Chola was a Hindu King: Dr Karan Singh.

To say Rajaraja is not a Hindu is akin to saying a Catholic is not a Christian, says Dr Karan Singh entering Chola Row.

Kamal Haasan and Dr Karan SinghUpendra Bharti | HENB | New Delhi | Oct 9, 2022:: Visionary Indian Statesman, Educationalist, Philanthropist and Author Dr Karan Singh, who is also a former MP and Congress veteran said on Friday that it was “absolutely ridiculous” to say that the King Rajaraja I of the Chola dynasty was not a Hindu.

He was reacting to the recent controversy that erupted after filmmaker Vetrimaaran commented in a function that there were attempts to give a Hindu identity to Rajaraja Chola. He implied that the Chola king was a Shaivite and Hinduism as a religion did not exist in that era. Actor Kamal Haasan on Thursday had backed this line of argument.

Some anti-Hindu forces in Deccan have been trying to segregate the Tamil culture from the umbrella of Hindu concept even claiming Thiruvalluvar was not a Hindu at all.

In a communiqué, Mr. Singh said to say that Rajaraja “was a Shaivite and not a Hindu” was akin to saying that “someone is a Catholic but not a Christian”. “These semantic gymnastics in a way denigrate and confuse our great religion and are not acceptable,” he said.

Dr Karan Singh Statement

According to him, though the word ‘Hindu’ may have gained traction only later, deities like Shiva, Vishnu, Hanuman, Ganesha, Mahalakshmi and Mahakali were all part of “Sanatan Dharma for millennia”. “One should not try and create a division between Shaivism, Vaishnavism, and Shaktism,” he said, adding they were the three main streams of Hindu religion.

Mr. Singh added that Shiva is a primordial Hindu deity, focus of intense devotion for millions over the millennia from Srinagar to Rameshwaram.  One of the greatest Shiva temples – the Brihadeeswara temple built by emperor Rajaraja was an architectural marvel, where he had worshipped many times.

    The anti-Hindus are becoming noisy. Bharat the land of DEVIS/DEVTAS
    can not be changed by cruel foreign invaders and their descendants. It
    is better they keep quiet or move out. Sanatan Bharat is the HOME for
    all born or belonging to the same race. They are gifted with the blessings
    of the DEVIS/DEVTAS and no force, internal or foreign, can take this
    away. No more. They who don’t have respect for the DEVIS/DEVTAS are
    authomatically anti- Sanatan Bharat and can not be given passport nor
    getting equal rights. They don’t belong to Bharat, no matter who they are.
    Actors/filmmakers or Bollywood workers have the duty to accept what
    Sanatan Bharat is. That is the NATIVE HOME of HINDUS. This is the voice
    of Sri Hanuman Seva Sena.

    Is there a chance that South Indian Saivites will develop a love for God? And add to this a love for India and all its peoples? Saivites seldom display a sense of religious decency. They will do anything to divide India in every way. I wonder when a Tamil Saivite will ever talk about India as a united nation. I will be deeply appreciative if one day a Tamil Saivite will tell us what contribution Saivism has ever made to world religious thought.
