Udhayanidhi Stalin slammed the BJP for “spreading fake news” after a BJP spokeswoman called his statements a “call to genocide.”
Facing criticism from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) for his remarks against Sanatan Dharma, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin’s son and minister Udhayanidhi said on Sunday that he was ready to face “whatever cases they file” against him.
“I reiterate that I only criticized Sanatan Dharma and stated that it should be eradicated.” “I will continue to say this,” Udhayanidhi, the Tamil Nadu government’s minister for youth development and sports, told reporters.
He slammed the BJP for “spreading fake news” when a party spokeswoman called his words a “call for genocide.” He went on to say that the ruling party was “scared” of the opposition’s Indian alliance
On Saturday, Udhayanidhi Stalin declared that Sanatan Dharma should be “eradicated,” claiming it is anti-equality and social justice.
“Some things cannot be fought against; they must be eradicated.” Mosquitoes, dengue fever, malaria, and Coronavirus are all unavoidable. They must be exterminated. “So, too, should Sanatan [Dharma],” he remarked in a speech to the Tamil Nadu Progressive Writers and Artists Association in Chennai.
The INDIA bloc was criticized for “insulting this country’s culture, history, and Sanatan Dharma” when the Union Home Minister Amit Shah made a controversial statement in response to his remarks.
Vineet Jindal, who self-identifies as an advocate, has complained to the commissioner of the Delhi Police, the deputy commissioner of police for the Northwest, and the Delhi Police’s cyber unit, claiming that Udhayanidhi’s remarks constituted hate speech.
“A few people are being foolish and screaming that I invited genocide, while others are advocating the abolition of Dravidam. So should DMK supporters be put to death? Does Prime Minister Modi mean for Congressmen to be executed when he says “Congress Mukt Bharat”? Describe Sanatan. Sanatan, which implies nothing should be altered and everything is eternal. But the Dravida model demands reform, and everyone should be treated equally, according to Udhayanidhi, who was quoted by the news agency ANI.
