A statement from Chinmayi’s mother grabbed the attention of netizens. According to Indiaglitz, T.Padmhasini, mother of singer Chinmayi, in a recent interview made statements in a way of supporting Devadasi system. Devadasi system is a religious practice whereby parents marry a daughter to a deity or a temple. The marriage usually occurs before the girl reaches puberty. In recent decades, the practice has been used to push young girls into prostitution.
Chinmayi’s mother said that it is a great system that belongs to the nation and added that she will never forgive Periyar for destroying the system. This made many netizens to troll her and the negativity affected Chinmayi as well. Chinmayi, in way of putting a full stop to the trolls and negativities, posted a tweet saying that she is not responsible for her mother’s activities. She even asked apology for hurting sentiments. Check out her tweet below :
தேவதாசி முறையை நான் complete ஆ எதிர்க்கிறேன். என்னுடைய அம்மாவுடைய கருத்துல எனக்கு உடன்பாடில்ல.— Chinmayi Sripaada (@Chinmayi) December 30, 2019
எங்க அம்மாவுடைய கருத்துகளால என்ன தேவதாஸி ஆகுன்னு சொல்றது நியாயமும் இல்லை.
அவ்ங்க actionsகு அவங்கதான் responsible.
ஆனாலும் நான் மன்னிப்பு கேட்கிறேன் for justifiably hurt sentiments
