DMK welcomes all Hindus, supports Sanatana Dharma followers: Tamil Nadu minister

by The Technical Blogs


Days after Tamil Nadu minister Udhayanidhi Stalin sparked a row by commenting on Sanatana Dharma, Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Minister and Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) leader, Sekar Babu, said his party welcomes all Hindus and supports Sanatana Dharma followers.

“We don’t oppose those who follow Sanatana Dharma. But some of its principles, such as not allowing women to be educated, ‘sati pratha’, and ‘kula kalvi’ are not progressive. We say that there should be no division among people and want to eradicate untouchability. As all this is mentioned in Sanatana, we oppose it,” said Minister Sekar Babu, who also claimed that DMK welcomes Hindus wholeheartedly.

Sekar Babu said Tamil Nadu BJP chief Annamalai was speaking without sense and had only picked up the Sanatana debate as he had nothing else to criticise regarding the way the state is being governed.

“He claimed that women practised ‘sati’ to safeguard their chastity. He is confused. He is not able to understand how to make his party win in Tamil Nadu,” stated minister Sekar Baby, who also claimed that Annamalai’s padayatra had failed and he had to take up the Sanatana debate.

Minister Sekar Baby also said DMK runs an inclusive government and recently certified 93 priests from all castes; three were women.

The minister’s comments came a day after the Mira Road Police in Mumbai registered an FIR against Tamil Nadu minister Udhayanidhi Stalin following a complaint over his remarks on Sanatana Dharma. DMK leader Udhayanidhi Stalin recently blamed Sanatana Dharma for promoting division and discrimination among people and said it should be eradicated.
