The press and media who defiled the sanctum sanctorum of a temple

This is with regard to a priest who had his illicit sexual escapades inside Macheswara perumal temple sanctum sanctorum  in Kanchipuram , Tamilnadu. The priest with an infantile face with a tuft in his head seemed a typical gurukkal. The precocious priest had enticed many women and had sexual acts in temple. He had the audacity to vidiograph his actions with his mobile. The priest had been doing his mischief during day time and while doing it he came out intermittently to perform pooja  for the innocent devotees . He was caught when he handed overthe mobile for repair, There came a spate of CDs that catered to the voyoeristic public of Tamilnadu.

As usual, the media of Tamilnadu, both print and visual, came out with cover stories and prime time highlights making a sensation . Of couerse , they might have made money and made the innocent devoties to see  all the priests with suspicion.The police , as usual, jumped into the fray , at the height of the sensation and started giving interviews informing that they suspect  many women were involved with the priest and they would enquire all. Of course, it is a ruse for extortion. Subsequently, a women attempted suicide on being framed as a suspect.
The press and visual media had covered the incident  with sensation. They made banner stories and followed it everyday till the priest had surrendered nad sent to custody,

The press need not have given  such a sensational coverage. The public shoul not have purchased the CDs t of the priest's  ugly pranks. Who is to blame? The press or the public or the priest or the women who were consenting parties for the sacrilege?

  1. ஒரு தமிழ்ப் படத்தில் இந்த மாதிரி வசனம் வரும். அவன் ஒருமுறை தான் கற்பழித்தான். ஆனால் ஊடகங்கள்/புலன் விசாரணை/குறுக்கு விசாரணை என்னும் பேரில் அந்த அபலைப் பெண்கள் பல முறை வெந்த புண்ணில் வேல் பாய்ச்சப் படுகின்றனர்.
