Writer, poet and composer Vairamuthu caused outcry around the world for his statement in Dinamani magazine that the Tamil poetess Andal was born into a prostitute community. Mr. Vairamuthu claims he had read this in an article by one Subash Chandra Malik of the University of Indiana.

Records will show that Andal was an infant who was found and raised by the Brahmin scholar, Vishnuchittha. Records will further show that the individual quoted has no affiliation whatsoever with the University of Indiana.

This petition calls for an immediate written statement of apology from Mr. Vairamuthu and Dinamani magazine.
