After the victory of the DMK, VCK will give a strong voice to demolish the Shiva temples in Tamil Nadu and build Buddhist monasteries.

Fact Check:

There is no date or time in the screenshot which is shared as a tweet posted by Thirumavalavan. Examining his Twitter page, no such post was featured. Opposition parties have stated they will not run in the by-elections. Nothing like that happened.

A member of the VCK said, “This fake edited tweet is being spread on screenshots on social media. They are creating misconceptions about our party at election time. Thirumavalavan did not post any such post on their Twitter page. ”

When asked if Thirumavalavan was talking about Shiva temples and Buddhist monasteries, he shared a video in 2019 of the Tamil Nadu BJP and others talking about the unification of Shiva temples and Buddhist temples while talking about the Ram temple to be built in Ayodhya.

In the 1.39 minute video, “There is no evidence that Ram was born in Ayodhya. It is inappropriate for us to ask for evidence. Because Raman was a fictional character…

If you look at it like that, there were Buddhist monasteries everywhere where there are Shiva temples and Perumal temples today. You have demolished Buddhist temples and built Shiva temples. You are building Perumal temples. So, we have to demolish it all and build Buddhist monasteries in those places. I say for your argument.

If the Babri Masjid was built on the site of the Ram Temple, then the correct argument would be to demolish the 450-year-old Babri Masjid and build a Ram Vihara on the site of the Tirupati Seven Hills. Buddhist monasteries should be built on the spot where Thiruvaranganathan slept. Buddhist monasteries should be built on the site of Kanchi Kamatchi.

The Shiva and Perumal temples in India were once Buddhist and Jain temples. Can anyone deny it? ”

The full video of Thirumavalavan talking about temples has been released on Thandhi TV in December 2017. It is understandable that they are currently creating a fake tweet post based on what they have said “demolish Shiva temples and build Buddhist monasteries” for the argument that the Ayodhya Ram temple issue.


In our search the tweet circulating that, “After the victory of the DMK, Thirumavalavan had posted that he would give a strong voice to demolish the Shiva temples in Tamil Nadu and build Buddhist monasteries was fake. We can able to find that it was an edited one.
