Responding to BJP IT cell’s hate campaign against his statements on Sanatan Dharma, Tamil Nadu minister and DMK leader Udhayanidhi Stalin stated that he firmly stands by every word he has spoken.
“I spoke on behalf of the oppressed and marginalized, who suffer due to the Sanatan Dharma,” he said.
“I never called for the genocide of people who are following Sanatan Dharma. Sanatan Dharma is a principle that divides people in the name of caste and religion. Uprooting Sanatan Dharma is upholding humanity and human equality,” read Udhayanidhi Stalin’s post on X.
Udhayanidhi was responding to BJP IT cell head Amit Malviya on X, formerly known as Twitter.
Malviya, who has been frequently accused of making false claims and promoting hate campaigns, alleged that the DMK leader was calling for the genocide of the 80% population of Bharat who follow Sanatan Dharma.
“I am ready to present the extensive writings of Periyar and Ambedkar, who conducted in-depth research on Sanatan Dharma and its negative impact on society in any forum,” added Udhayanidhi who is the son of DMK chief and Tamil Nadu chief minister MK Stalin.
“Let me reiterate the crucial aspect of my speech: I believe, like the spread of diseases like COVID-19, Dengue, and Malaria by mosquitoes, that Sanatan Dharma is responsible for many social evils,” he said.
He further said that he is prepared to confront any challenges that come his way, whether in a court of law or the people’s court.
“Stop spreading fake news,” Udhayanidhi said.
In another post on X, the DMK leader said: “Bring it on. I am ready to face any legal challenge. We will not be cowed down by such usual saffron threats. We, the followers of Periyar, Anna, and Kalaignar, would fight forever to uphold social justice and establish an egalitarian society under the able guidance of our Hon’ble CM @mkstalin. I will say it today, tomorrow, and forever: Our resolve to stop Sanathana Dharma from the Dravidian land would not reduce even a bit.”
