Ram Mandir Inauguration: Singer KS Chithra Draws Criticism for Social Media Post

Ram Mandir Opening Ceremony KS Chithra

Ram Mandir Opening Ceremony: Renowned singer KS Chithra faced social media criticism for her appeal, urging people to chant Lord Ram's mantra and light lamps on the evening of January 22.

In the video, known as the 'Nightingale of the South,' Chithra said, "When the consecration ceremony is held in Ayodhya on January 22, everybody should recite the Ram mantra 'Sri Rama, Jayarama, Jaya Rama' at 12:20 pm. Similarly, everyone should light a five-wick lamp at home. Praying that God's blessings are showered upon everyone. Loka Samastha Sukhino Bhavantu."

Singer Sooraj Santhosh responded on his Instagram story, saying, "The highlight is the innocence of the people who say, "Loka Samasta Sukhino Bhavantu," conveniently forgetting the history, putting aside the fact that the temple was built by demolishing a mosque. How many idols are going to be broken one by one? How many more KS Chithra will show their true colors? Pity."

Writer Indu Menon expressed on Facebook, "No matter how much you chant in the blood of people, their migration, and their pains, no Rama and Vishnu are going to come. Even if you light 5 lakh lamps, your mind is not going to be filled with light. The world believed that it was Nightingale only because of the voice, but it has been proven that you are actually a 'fake Nightingale.'"

Singer G Venugopal came to Chithra's defense, urging forgiveness. He stated, "All this is very upsetting for somebody who has not been involved in any kind of controversies till date. If there is a difference of opinion, can we not forgive her, who has sung so many songs for us, once?"

KS Chithra, a Padma Bhushan awardee, has received six national film awards and 36 state film awards from six states. With over 25,000 recorded songs in various languages, she has made a significant contribution to the music industry.
