Sanatan Dharma Row Bengaluru court orders FIR against Udhayanidhi Stalin

New Delhi: A special court in the city directed the police to register a criminal complaint against Tamil Nadu Youth Development Minister Udayanidhi Stalin and three others for his controversial statement over Sanatana Dharma.

Bangalore Metropolitan Magistrate's Court, which was acting on a private complaint on Friday, also ordered summonses against the four persons. 
Special (Magistrate) Court Judge J Preeth passed the order after considering a private complaint filed by one V Paramesh.

Udhayanidhi, who is the son of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin, stoked a controversy last year by comparing Sanatana Dharma to "dengue" and "malaria".

Advocate Dharmapal, appearing for petitioner Paramesh, said, "Tamil Nadu CM MK Stalin’s son Udhayanidhi Stalin partook in an event that opposed Sanatana Dharma. He made a comment about Sanatana Dharma claiming that it has to be driven out like dengue and malaria. This was published everywhere. After that, he has been sticking to the stand and reiterating the same statement. He said that he will face it in the court as well."

Taking cognisance of the offences under Sections 153 (provoking to cause riot), 298 (hurting religious sentiments) and 500 (defamation) of the IPC, the judge adjourned the hearing till March 4.
