Tamil Nadu MP A Raja has once again created a new controversy with the statement. This time he has commented on ‘Hindu’ and ‘Untouchable’. Bharatiya Janata Party has shared the video of this matter. At the same time, Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam has been accused of the politics of appeasement. Raja is an MP from Chief Minister MK Stalin’s party. He has been embroiled in cases like controversial remarks and 2G scam in the past as well.
A video was posted on Twitter by BJP state president K Annamalai. In the video, Raja is questioning Hinduism during an event. According to the video, Raja is saying, ‘You people are Shudras as long as you are Hindus. You are the sons of a prostitute only as long as you are Shudras. You are a Dalit as long as you are a Hindu. As long as you are a Hindu, you are an untouchable.’
In the video, he also raised questions on the Supreme Court. The DMK MP said, ‘The Supreme Court says that if you are not a Christian, Muslim or Parsi, then you will be a Hindu. Have you seen such atrocities in any other country?’ He has asked people to be vocal on the issues of casteism to challenge Sanatan Dharma. He said that time has come to raise this issue in DMK and its mouthpiece Mursoli.
