In the midst of the ongoing political controversy surrounding Tamil Nadu Minister Udhayananidhi Stalin’s remarks on Sanatan Dharma, Karnataka Minister Priyank Kharge has expressed his support for the son of Tamil Nadu’s Chief Minister. Priyank Kharge, who is also the son of Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, has echoed Udhayananidhi’s stance, asserting that any religion failing to uphold equal rights is comparable to an ailment.
Previously, Udhayanidhi faced significant backlash when his statement was reported as follows: ‘Sanatan Dharma is like malaria and dengue and so it must be eradicated and not opposed.’
Backing Stalin’s viewpoint on Monday, Priyank Kharge told reporters, ‘Any religion that does not promote equality, any religion that doesn’t ensure that you have the dignity of being a human being is not a religion, according to me. So it is as good as a disease.’
