CHENNAI, INDIA, August 20, 2001: Various Christian organizations in Tamil Nadu on Monday took out a procession here to condemn the DMK's action in putting up posters in several parts of the city, portraying the political party's leader, former Tamil Nadu chief minister, Karunanidhi, as Jesus Christ. Recently, Karunanidhi had told newsmen that he had ordered the posters to be removed as soon as he came to know about their appearance all over the city. The DMK party is officialy atheistic. When the present chief minister, Jayalalitha, was in power during 1991 to 1996, some of her party activists had put up posters describing her as Virgin Mary.
