Tamil Nadu Youth Welfare Minister Udhayanidhi Stalin, while addressing the recent meeting of Tamil Nadu Progressive Writers and Artists Association in Chennai, termed Sanatan Dharma as against equality and social justice and said that it should be abolished.
Udhayanidhi compared Sanatan Dharma to coronavirus, malaria, dengue virus and fever caused by mosquitoes, saying that such things should not be opposed but destroyed, while another DMK leader A Raja criticized Sanatan Dharma. Compared to leprosy and HIV. This comment of both the leaders has created a political controversy.
Thakur said, “Leaders of Congress allies are talking about ending Sanatan Dharma… but Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are silent. They are silent because elections are important for them. But for BJP, not elections, Sanatan Dharma and Baba Saheb’s Constitution are supreme.
He said, “Mughals came and the British also came and went, but Sanatan is there and will remain so.”
Thakur alleged, “Congress and its allies call Sanatan Dharma as AIDS, dengue and malaria for votes.” Congress raised question marks on the existence of Lord Ram and termed him imaginary. Congress and its allies say that Sanatan Dharma will have to be rooted out.
He said this while addressing a public meeting under Bharatiya Janata Party’s Jan Ashirwad Yatra in Barwani district.
Thakur said that Congress leaders will go to the voters to seek votes by claiming themselves to be devotees of Lord Shiva, Devi, Hanuman and Krishna, but the truth is that this party (Congress) and its allies want to destroy Hindus.
He said, “Does the Constitution of India have no value in the eyes of Congress? Look at the rule of law, the Congressmen who once described Lord Ram as imaginary are now calling themselves true Hindus. Why does Congress, which raises questions on Hindus, want to destroy Sanatan and the Constitution from its roots?
Thakur said that on one hand, people of the ‘Ghamandiya’ alliance (opposition alliance ‘India’) are insulting Hindutva, while on the other hand, the central and state governments of BJP are working to increase the cultural splendor of the country.
He said that due to the devotion and efforts of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, many works like construction of Divya Mahakal Mahalok in Ujjain, construction of the grand statue of Adi Shankaracharya in Omkareshwar are being done.
The Union Minister said that Chief Minister Chouhan is working for the development of other places of religious and cultural importance in the state. To continue this journey of cultural and religious development, once again form the BJP government in Madhya Pradesh.
