The summons stems from a complaint filed by Bengaluru resident Paramesh and was issued by a Special Court of People’s Representatives in the city. Udhayanidhi Stalin, the son of Chief Minister MK Stalin, faced criticism for remarks he made in September last year during the ‘Sanatana Abolition Conference.’

During the conference, Udhayanidhi compared ‘Sanatan Dharma’ to diseases like malaria and dengue, stating, “There are some things which we have to eradicate and we can’t merely oppose. Mosquitoes, dengue fever, malaria, corona, all these are things which we cannot oppose, we have to eradicate them. Sanatanam is also like this.”

His comments, captured in a viral video clip, triggered a political uproar, with the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Hindu leaders condemning the statement. Despite the backlash, Udhayanidhi refused to apologize and expressed readiness to face any legal challenges.

In response to the controversy, Udhayanidhi took to X (formerly Twitter) and stated, “Bring it on. I am ready to face any legal challenge. We will not be cowed down by such usual saffron threats. We, the followers of Periyar, Anna, and Kalaignar, would fight forever to uphold social justice and establish an egalitarian society under the able guidance of our honorable CM.” Stay tuned for updates on this legal development.
