An FIR has been lodged against Udhayanidhi Stalin and Priyank Kharge for inciting religious emotions with comments about Sanatan Dharma.
Police claimed on Wednesday that an FIR had been filed against Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge’s son Priyank Kharge and Tamil Nadu Minister Udhayanidhi Stalin for allegedly inciting religious emotions.
According to PTI, the two were charged at Civil Lines Police Station on Tuesday under sections 295 A (deliberate and intentional actions to insult religious sentiments) and 153 A (promoting enmity between different religious groups) of the IPC.
According to police, Udhayanidhi Stalin was arrested for his desire to eliminate Sanatan Dharma, and Priyank Kharge was arrested for supporting his views.
According to PTI, the FIR was filed in response to a complaint filed by attorneys Harsh Gupta and Ram Singh Lodhi, who cited media reports on Stalin’s statement and said that the politician’s statements had hurt their feelings.
Udhayanidhi Stalin, the son of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin, has come under fire for saying on Saturday that Sanatan Dharma should not only be resisted but exterminated.
Undaunted by the enormous hostility to his anti-Sanatan Dharma stance, he declared yesterday that he will continue to speak out against Sanatan Dharma.
“I will speak about the issue that I raised at the event on Saturday numerous times.” I’ll say more later. “I told myself that day that I was going to talk about the issue that would irritate many people, and that is exactly what happened,” Stalin stated on Monday.
The INDIA coalition appears to be fractured by the Sanatana Dharma comment controversy, with Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) officials criticising Tamil Nadu Minister Udhayanidhi Stalin for “unadulterated hate speech.”
The Opposition INDIA alliance comprising the Congress, Trinamool Congress, Shiv Sena (UBT), and Aam Aadmi Party distanced themselves from Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin’s son for talking on Sanatana Dharma.
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee remarked that people should not comment on anything that can offend people’s religious sensibilities and that she respects Sanatana Dharma.
“It’s shocking that a responsible politician would make such a completely unacceptable statement.” “I have the highest regard for the magnificent Tamil culture, but I strongly object to Thiru Udhayanidhi’s statement,” Congress politician Karan Singh stated.
