What is the Truth?

The DMK rule received criticism for many things like the Dharumapura Atheenam Pallaku issue, Goshala, naming the Tiruvarur road after Kalaignar, and the ban on beef biryani at the biryani festival. In this case, if the Tamil Nadu Police had saluted and honoured Jeeyar, there would have been a debate in the media and political circles. But, no such news was seen.

A keyword search related to the viral video resulted on the website and YouTube channel ‘vandeguruparamparaam’ about paying tribute to Sringeri Shankaracharya Bharathi Theertha Swami during his Yatra in Kerala in 2017. It is also mentioned that Sringeri Jagadguru has been officially announced as the state government guest.

Rumours are circulating on social media with a video of Kerala’s Sringeri Sankaracharya being given state honours by the police 5 years ago as an honour to Jeeyar during the DMK rule in Tamil Nadu.


The video circulating that the police saluted Jeeyar for the first time in Tamil Nadu during the DMK regime is wrong. The video is all about the honours by the government when Sringeri Shankaracharya visited Kerala in 2017.
