A program producer with Kalaignar Seithigal TV network shocked the social media users with rabid Hinduphobic posts on Facebook.
On 25 September, Iniyavan put out a Facebook post saying that something good can be found in Bible and Koran, the holy books of Christians and Muslims respectively, and degraded Bhagwad Geeta, the revered book of Hindus, comparing it to a bodily function.
In another post put out last year, Iniyavan expressed anger on Ganesh Chaturti wall posters by Hindu Munnani across Pudhukkottai town, and said that India is getting ready for a cultural war. “I appeal to my LEFT friends to wage a war against these, otherwise generations to come will abuse you,” he added.
“My comrades are either equipped with red flags or guns,” he said in a comment on the post.
In his bio, Iniyavan mentions that he is a program producer at Kalaignar Seithigal and former executive producer at Angela Studios. He also says that he worked at Oneindia Tamil and studied journalism at Loyola College Chennai after BA at The New College, Chennai.
Kalaignar TV, founded in 2007 owns several channels and is named after the former chief minister of Tamil Nadu and DMK chief M Karunanidhi.
