The facebook page of actor Vijay Sethupathi is now overhauled by the comments and discussions about one act of the actor,supporting the stand of Kerala CM Pinarayi Vijayan in Sabarimala issue.
The “Makkal Selvan” of Kollywood recently said that he was a ‘big fan’ of CM Pinarayi Vijayan in a interview.
While he was in the shooting location of a film in Alappuzha,questioned the validity of the argument that portrays women as “impure” because of their menstrual cycle. He is also reported to have said that, “the Chief Minister is right on the Sabarimala issue. I don’t understand why there is so much problem about it.”
The Supreme Court verdict on September 28, 2018 allowing the entry of women of all ages to enter the Sabarimala temple has literally divided the state of Kerala on religious and political lines.
Several comments supporting and outrageous flood into his page,one person commented,“Before expressing your views on Sabarimala issue, find sometime to study about the history and beliefs of the temple. Majority of Keralites are hating our hitler CM Pinarayi Vijayan for the Sabarimala issue,”.
In an another outrageous comment the actor was critisised for his double standard in Jellikkettu and Kerala-Sabarimala supreme court verdicts.
“No one should fail to see that innocent mind of actor Vijay Sethupathi who stood against the SC verdict on Jallikattu in Tamil Nadu and his support for an atheist CM over the Sabarimala issue in Kerala. He is an actor who would do anything to get applause,”
n the other hand,he also received several supporting comments saying,he is a big man.
“He is someone who came from the lower strata of the society..Respect to our Makkal Selvan for upholding progressive values and for accepting the laws of the highest court of the country,” commented a user.
The actor also showed his gratitude to Pinarayi Vijayan for donating Rs 10 crore to Tamil Nadu relief fund after the Cyclone Gaja, despite Kerala dealing with the floods,while giving an interview to New Indian Express.
