Citation[edit]

Citation 7 in the lead section is from the book Land of Charity: A Descriptive account of Travancore and its people . I quote the passage here:

Truly we may say, in view of these enormities perpetrated in the sacred name of religion, "The dark places of the earth are full of the habitations of cruelty".

We have not space for more than the bare mention of a curious phenomenon in the religious history of Travancore, which has appeared within the last forty years, - namely, the rise of a new sect of religionists, who have adopted an absurd medley of Hinduism and Demonolatry, with a slight tinge of the Christian element. This superstition was originated by one Muttukutti, a poor Palmyra climber, who laid claim to be an incarnation of Vishnu, and pretended to possess miraculous powers; by these means he attached himself to thousands of credulous followers. Since the death of their leader in 1848, he has been worshipped by followers as a manifestation of the Supreme God; and this singular people display considerable zeal in the defence and propagation of their destructive errors.

How does the above passage provide reference to the statement "It is conceived as an independent monistic religion by... academic research" in the article? Maybe the editors of the article are referring to the use of the phrase "the rise of a new sect of religionists.."?

On a different note, the above passage talks about "superstition", "pretended to possess miraculous powers", "attached himself to thousands of credulous followers", ".. display considerable zeal in the defence and propagation of their destructive errors". IMO, this source would be more appropriate when used to discuss questions on the credibility of Ayyavazhi. --Madhu (talk) 13:14, 28 May 2008 (UTC)

Since so many questions raised so far on the creadibility of Ayyavazhi I personally feel that it will not benifit the article if this citation was removed. But since it promote negative view over Ayyavazhi it will be appropriate to leave a notein the reference section itself about this and have done. Thanks for your valuable comments. - PAUL RAJ 07:06, 3 June 2008 (UTC)

Never heard of this religion even though I am from Tamil Nadu. Are you sure tehy have so many adherents? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 122.167.100.238 (talk) 05:05, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Please take a look into the citations. - PAUL RAJ 18:39, 17 November 2008 (UTC)
