Nagapattinam: Heads of various Hindu
mutts in Tamil Nadu on Tuesday demanded ban on Tamil book
`Thandavapuram` for allegedly defaming seventh century Hindu
saint Thirugnanasambandar.

The demand was made at a conference of heads of Mutts
at Sirkazhi, the birth place of Thirugnanasambandar here.

The heads of mutts expressed anguish over the manner
in which Thirugnanasambandar had been portrayed in the book,
authored by Solai Sundaraperumal, and alleged the contents are
hurtful, defamatory and beyond accepted levels of decency.
