Speaking to reporters after a row over his comments on Sanatana Dharma, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin's son Udhayanidhi Stalin said,"I am saying again that I only criticised Sanatana Dharma and that Sanatana Dharma should be eradicated. I will say this continuously.
"Few are being childish saying I invited for genocide while others are saying that Dravidam should be abolished. Does that mean DMKians should be killed? When PM Modi says 'Congress Mukth Bharat', does that mean congressmen should be killed?
"What is Sanatana? Sanatana means nothing should be changed and all are permanent. But the Dravida model calls for change and all should be equal. BJP twisting my statement and spreading fake news, it's their usual job. I am ready to face whatever cases they file against me. BJP is scared of the INDIA Alliance & to divert that they are saying all this...DMK's policy is One clan, one God."
A complaint has been filed with the Delhi police against Udhayanidhi by Supreme Court lawyer Vineet Jindal. In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Jindal said that the complaint has been filed under sections 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion race, place of birth, residence, language, etc., and doing acts prejudicial to maintenance of harmony), 120B (punishment for criminal conspiracy), 295 (destruction, damage, or defilement of a place of worship or an object held sacred, with intent to insult the religion of a class of persons), and 504 (Insult intended to provoke breach of the peace) of the Indian Penal Code and provisions under the Information Technology Act, 2000.
