Chennai. Describing Tamil as the ‘language of God’, the Madras High Court has said that consecration in temples across the country should be done through the compositions of Arunagirinathar, Tamil hymns composed by saints like Azhwar and Nayanmar. In a recent order, a bench of Justices N Kirubakaran and B Pugalendhi said that in our country it has been made to believe that only Sanskrit is the language of God. The judges said that every language spoken by the people is the language of God.
The bench said that different countries and religions have different beliefs and places of worship also change according to culture and religion. He said, the local language is used in those places for works related to God, but in our country a belief was created that only Sanskrit is the language of God and no other language is equivalent to it.
