Days after Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin’s son and state minister Udhayanidhi Stalin made a controversial remark about the eradication of ‘Sanatan Dharma,’ another DMK Minister and MP A Raja on Thursday compared Sanatana Dharma with the social stigma like HIV and leprosy.
“Udhayanidhi Stalin was soft in comparing and claiming that it should eradicated like malaria and dengue. But these diseases don’t have a social stigma. To be honest, leprosy was seen as disgusting and so as HIV. So, we need to see this as a disease ridden with social stigma like HIV and Leprosy,” the DMK MP said.
The minister further said that he is ready to answer all the cabinet ministers if the Prime Minister convenes a meeting.
“I am prepared to give answers for all cabinet ministers if the Prime Minister convenes the meeting and let them permit me. I will explain which one is ‘Sanatana Dharma’ thereafter you decide,” A Raja told reporters.
Notably, Udhaynidhi Stalin is facing lot of flak for his controversial comment.
