Hindu means Thief ! HC Notice to Karunanidhi
20/04/2013 02:44:09  VSK Chennai

 On the day of ‘Rama Navami’, based on the petition filed on the controversial remark that the term ‘Hindu’ meant ‘thief’, Justice Kirubakaran today has ordered to serve the hearing notice to the former Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi.

It all started on October 24, 2002, when Karunanidhi, addressing a conference against the anti-conversion law brought out by the Jayalalithaa regime, said that the word 'Hindu' meant thief. On November 14, 2003, the Tamil Nadu government gave permission for the prosecution of Karunanidhi, and a chargesheet was filed before the XIV metropolitan magistrate court at Egmore.

Thieve
Poor chief of thief. He never expected, in 2002, that his entire family, including daughter would become thief. Now he is the head of family of thieves. He was (Thie)Chief minister!

You SOB try making such a comment on Muslims/Christians
Nearly 11 years ago, DMK president M Karunanidhi reportedly made a controversial statement that the term 'Hindu' meant 'thief'. A criminal case filed against him for hurting the sentiments of Hindus by making the statement has now returned to haunt him. On Friday, Justice N Kirubakaran of the Madras high court issued a notice on a petition seeking registration of a case and fair investigation into the matter.

It all started on October 24, 2002 when newspapers carried Karunanidhi's statement that the term 'Hindu' meant 'thief'. When criticism poured in, Karunanidhi reiterated his interpretation a few days later and quoted Hindi Vishwa Kosh to justify his statement.

Describing it as Hindu-bashing which hurt the sentiments of people, a criminal complaint was lodged by B R Gouthaman with the city police, stating that these statements had created unrest in society.

When the Mambalam police did not register a first information report, he filed a petition in the high court. On November 17, 2005, the high court asked police to register a case if a prima facie case is made out. Accordingly, police registered an FIR on January 6, 2006.

As there was no progress in the probe till 2011, when the DMK was in power, Gouthaman's counsel G Karthikeyan approached the HC again. "Mr Karunanidhi has made it a habit to pass irreverent comments on Hinduism, its practices and beliefs," he said. "He being a reputed political leader, many of his followers and people from different organisations are delivering speeches, taking a cue from him, which offend the sentiments of Hindus," he said.

Karthikeyan further submitted that whenever he contacted police to know the status of the FIR, he was given a bland reply that investigation was still in progress.

When the matter came up for hearing on Friday, Tamil Nadu public prosecutor Shanmugavelayudham informed the court that he would file a report on the matter before the court. Justice Kirubakaran then adjourned the matter to April 23.

Thief of Chennai
Poor Chap Karunanidhi- He must have got mixed up with The Hindu and its readers.

Well , when this poor chap uttered such words, not many reacted or responded . So, if we Hindus are not thieves , why are we hiding and what are we hiding from? I mean only thieves would need to hide and shy away from. The real thief is out in the open and making such ludicrous comments and gets away. Hindus need a leader who can give them confidence , unfortunately there is no one brave enough now; The last brave man was Hemu and we do not even remember him.

To end this puzzle, i would like to also state that by law and by common sense a thief is that person who grabs property owned by another person, maybe we will also see a day when genuine property owners are arrested when thieves grab their property. Of course this has happened in most parts of Bharat , but may be made the norm soon. Jago Hindu Jago, Grahak So Jao.

karunanidhi
While it is commendable that someone should file a case against Karunanidhi for his anti-Hindu comments, here is what Hindu Munnani workers should explain in their public meetings. Karunanidhi has said that the word "Hindu" means thief in Persian. I have recently found out the name "Karunanidhi" means "the head of a family of looters," in one of the Eskimo dialects.
