Chennai, Sep 24 (UNI) Reacting to the 'fatwa' issued by a VHP leader against Tamil Nadu Chief Minister and DMK President M Karunanidhi for his remarks on Lord Rama, United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Chairperson Sonia Gandhi has called for overcoming such problems by acting in unison.

In a telephonic talk with DMK Parliamentary Party Leader and Union Minister T R Baalu last night, she said, ''let us continue to concentrate on pubic service without being cowed down by such threats.'' Mr Baalu had dashed off letters to Ms Gandhi and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, demanding stern action against former BJP MP and VHP leader Ram Vilas Vedanti for issuing the 'fatwa'.

Following Mr Vedanti's 'fatwa' that he would reward with gold anyone who beheaded Mr Karunanidhi or cut his tongue for questioning the existence of Lord Rama, DMK cadre had attacked the offices of the BJP, VHP and Hindu Munnani in the city and registered their protest across the state yesterday.
