Sudha Ragunathan face severe accusations as her daughter is set to marry a foreigner

1 share

Sudha Ragunathan is one of the most popular carnatic singers . She had received a lot of awards and she was also given the Kalaimamani award in 1994 by the Government of India. She was pulled into a controversy and she has been bashed very badly in social media platforms by the common people from last weekend. The wedding invitation of her daughter’s marriage to a foreigner is going viral in Twitter handles. Her daughter name is Malavika and there were talks stating that her daughter was going to make a religious conversion i.e. from Hinduism to Christianity. A lot of people who preach Hinduism got agitated and they were making statements like “Sudha Ragunathan is not allowed to perform in temples and sabhas anymore”.

The comments against the family started on June 19 and it continues till date. The groom has an African assent and his name was Michael Murphy, this further raised racism issues also. They were talks stating that the entire family is getting converted to Christianity. There were tweets like the singer had brought the art both personally and professionally. Some people supported the singer by stating that marriage is a personal choice and it has nothing to do with one’s career and such a huge discussion for her personal matter is not necessary too.

When Swarnamalya, the singer’s acquaintance was contacted she stated that accusing such a great singer is seriously bad and she deserves respect for her art. Similar accusations were faced by OS Arun and Nityashree Mahadevan in August 2018 for recording songs that praise Jesus in carnatic ragas.

Criticism is accepted, but criticising a person based on her personal life and further making a statement
against her career keeping something else in mind is definitely not fair. Sudha Ragunathan is a great vocalist and she had made a very big contribution in carnatic music. She has to be respected for her work and targeting and bashing her is not required and this is not the solution too.
