INDIA Bloc Hates Hinduism: Amit Shah On DMK Leader’s Sanatan Dharma Remark

New Delhi:

The remark on Sanatana Dharma by DMK chief MK Stalin’s minister son shows that the Opposition bloc INDIA “hates Hinduism” and is “an attack on our heritage”, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said today.

Mr Shah was speaking at Dungarpur in poll-bound Rajasthan at the launch of the BJP’s Parivartan Yatra. The BJP is pushing hard to defeat the ruling Congress and return to power in the upcoming Rajasthan polls.

Addressing a writers’ conference in Chennai, Tamil Nadu minister Udhayanidhi Stalin said the idea of “Sanatana Dharma is against the idea of social justice and must be eradicated”. He also drew a parallel between Sanatana Dharma and diseases such as dengue and malaria.

The remarks have sparked a massive row, with BJP leaders terming them a call for genocide.

Responding to the criticism, Mr Stalin has said Sanatana Dharma “is a principle that divides people in the name of caste and religion”.

“I never called for the genocide of people who are following Sanatana Dharma. Uprooting Sanatana Dharma is upholding humanity and human equality. I stand firmly by every word I have spoken. I spoke on behalf of the oppressed and marginalized, who suffer due to the Sanatana Dharma,” he has said.
