TN govt withdraws ordinance – Your Opinion

According to NDTV, Tamil Nadu government has decided to withdraw the ordinance that would have allowed non-Brahmins to become priests in temples. I would like to know your views on this topic? Being a sensitive topic, I request readers to refrain from making any inflammatory comments.

The Tamil Nadu Government has withdrawn its ordinance to allow non-Brahmins to become priests in the state’s temples. Earlier this month, the Supreme Court put a stay on the ordinance passed by the Karunanidhi government in July which had said any Hindu could become a priest. The decision to break the brahminical hold over temples was a major election promise of the DMK. However Chief Minister M Karunanidhi says this was the dream of the Periyar – the father of the Dravidian movement.
