Nincompoops like @srinivasaiims are completely unaware of their own history. If you are a true Tamil, you should know your history. The first known Tamil grammer Agathiyam was written by Great Sage Agathiyar around 2000 B.C or even before.
He was one of the greatest proponents of Saiva Siddhanta and Devi upasakar. Bhagwan Mahavir came much later in 5-6th century B.C. He was originally from Kingdom of Videhas present day Bihar whereas the ancient Tamizhagam has been a seat of Shaiva Siddhanda since time immemorial
The divine Tamil language has its roots from Shaiva Siddhanta originated from Lord Shiva and propagated by Lord Murugan/Karthikeya. That’s why Lord Murugan is the patron diety of Tamil language.
The earliest Tamil Sangam is said to be convened by 545 sages in the presence of Lord Shiva, Muruga and Sage Agasthya.
You may be driven by agenda by calling hindutva. There is nothing called Hindutva anywhere in our history.
Only in medieval period from 6-10th century AD, due to invasion of Jain kings from North and Jain ideology spread. But there had never been any massacre happened during that time. In fact, it was the other way. Shaivaites were tortured to give up Shaivism and embrace Jainism.
Periyava puranam has huge references to this (ex. Appar, Murthy Nayanar). Hence such foolish and false claims show your foolishness and ignorance Mr. @srinivasaiims
Another agenda of so called Dravidian mushrooms is to project Thirukkural as secular. Thiruvalluvar (31 B.C - 1 AD) was himself a shaivaite and there are lot of references of how Thirukural was debuted in 2nd Tamil Sangam and contemporary poetess Avvaiyar.
Periya Puranam* by Sekkizhar (12th Century AD)
Tamizh is one of the ancient living language and its survival owes largely to Bhakti movements led by 63 Nayanmars, 12 Azhwars and innumerable poets/poetess. Tamizh literature is never secular in current meaning. It had always propagated the greatest ideals of Sanatana Dharma.
