Ayodhya:Reiterating the death warning against Tamil Nadu Minister Udhayanidhi Stalin over his “eradicate Sanatan Dharma” remark, Ayodhya Hindu priest Paramhans Acharya on Tuesday said that “if required, I myself will behead MK Stalin’s son, and I will also increase the bounty of Rs 10 crore if that is not enough for beheading him.” He had earlier announced Rs 10 crore for beheading the DMK leader.
A firestorm of controversy engulfed Tamil Nadu Minister Udhayanidhi Stalin following his recent remarks about “eradicating Sanatan Dharma,” a statement that has ignited outrage across the nation.
Acharya has called upon Udhayanidhi to educate himself about the history of Sanatan Dharma and demanded a public apology for his comments. He emphasized that the lack of an apology would not shield Udhayanidhi from consequences, even if he is the son of a chief minister.
Earlier, Paramhans Acharya had announced a cash reward of Rs 10 crore for anyone capable of beheading Udhayanidhi Stalin and delivering his head.
In response to these threats, Udhayanidhi Stalin has displayed unwavering resolve, stating that he is not afraid of such statements.
He pointed out that his stance aligns with that of his grandfather, Karunanidhi, who had also faced similar death threats in the past. Udhayanidhi acknowledged the anticipated strong reactions to his remarks at the “Sanatana Abolition Conference.”
The controversy stemming from Udhayanidhi’s comments has led to widespread outrage, with political leaders and citizens from all walks of life condemning his statement and demanding a formal apology. Questions have also been raised regarding the DMK party, which is a member of the INDIA alliance.
Despite the escalating tensions, Udhayanidhi remains resolute, reiterating his willingness to stand by his comments regarding Sanatan Dharma. This development continues to dominate headlines and raises concerns about the broader implications for religious tolerance and free speech in India.
