Senior Supreme Court lawyer Vineet Jindal has lodged a formal complaint with the Delhi Police against Tamil Nadu minister Udhayanidhi Stalin over remarks made by the DMK leader regarding Sanatan Dharma. Jindal, taking to social media platform X (formerly Twitter), announced that he had initiated legal action against Udhayanidhi Stalin, characterizing the Tamil Nadu minister’s comments as “provocative, inciting, and defamatory against Sanatan Dharma.”

The complaint has been registered under several sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), including 120B (criminal conspiracy), 153A (promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, etc.), 295 (injuring or defiling a place of worship), and 504 (intentional insult with intent to provoke breach of the peace), in addition to provisions of the Information Technology (IT) Act.

The controversy erupted on Saturday, September 2, when Udhayanidhi Stalin made remarks during an event in Chennai, suggesting that Sanatan Dharma should not only be opposed but also abolished. Furthermore, he equated Sanatan Dharma with diseases such as “malaria, dengue, and corona” in his speech.

These comments by the Tamil Nadu minister drew strong objections from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). BJP national spokespersons expressed outrage on X, characterizing Stalin’s remarks as a “genocidal call.”

In response to BJP national spokesperson Amit Malviya’s X post, in which he accused Udhayanidhi Stalin of “calling for genocide of 80% of Bharat,” the DMK leader clarified that he did not advocate the genocide of those following Sanatan Dharma. However, he stood firmly by every word he had spoken, asserting that he had spoken on behalf of the oppressed and marginalized who, he claimed, suffer due to the practices associated with Sanatan Dharma.

Udhayanidhi Stalin expressed readiness to face any challenges, whether in a court of law or the court of public opinion, and urged against the spread of fake news regarding the controversy.
