Union Minister Meenakshi Lekhi has responded to Tamil Nadu Minister Udhayanidhi Stalin’s recent statement regarding the “eradication of Sanatana Dharma.” Expressing her concern, Lekhi has attributed the surge in such reactions to what she perceives as a form of mental bankruptcy.

Lekhi argued that these reactions are coming from individuals who not only lack an understanding of and respect for the traditions of Sanatana Dharma but also have limited knowledge of their own living heritage.

“The one who is steadfast in his statement is engaged in politics… He harbors hatred against Sanatana. This is not the first time that Hindu society has faced such hatred; it has persisted throughout history. However, today, people are not accepting this resistance. We are witnessing a surge in reactions because this kind of mental bankruptcy is prevalent among those who show disrespect towards Sanatana traditions and possess minimal knowledge of their own living heritage,” she remarked.
