PM Modi Defends Sanatan Dharma: Hidden Agenda of the INDIA Alliance
Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a massive gathering in Bina, Madhya Pradesh, shedding light on the controversy sparked by Tamil Nadu Minister Udhayanidhi Stalin’s remarks concerning Sanatan Dharma. In a passionate speech, PM Modi accused the Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) of harboring a “hidden agenda” aimed at attacking and dismantling the cherished cultural heritage of Sanatan Dharma.
Launching a vigorous attack on the Opposition coalition, PM Modi referred to it humorously as the “INDIA alliance” due to its absence of a clear leader. He emphasized that, when India is gaining global recognition as a leader, certain political parties are endeavoring to sow division within the nation. PM Modi described this coalition as an “arrogant alliance,” questioning their leadership and highlighting the suspense surrounding their choice of a leader for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections.
PM Modi expressed his concern that the INDIA alliance is working with a concealed agenda, which he believes is aimed at undermining India’s rich cultural heritage. He went on to allege that, during their third meeting, the Opposition bloc adopted a resolution targeting the “end of Sanatana culture” in the country.
PM Modi firmly stated that the INDIA Alliance has adopted a resolution aimed at eradicating our enduring ‘Sanatana’ culture, targeting the very values, cultures, and traditions that have bound our nation and its people for centuries.
This strong response from PM Modi comes in the wake of controversial remarks made by Udhayanidhi Stalin, the son of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin. Udhayanidhi Stalin suggested that Sanatan Dharma is incompatible with the concept of social justice and should be “eliminated.” He drew a controversial analogy, equating Sanatan Dharma to diseases like malaria and dengue, arguing that it should be eradicated rather than opposed.
PM Modi’s address in Bina followed his foundation-laying ceremony for several significant projects, collectively valued at over ₹50,700 crores. These projects included the establishment of a ‘Petrochemical Complex’ at Bina Refinery and the initiation of ten new industrial projects across Madhya Pradesh.
Among these ten projects, a ‘Power and Renewable Energy Manufacturing Zone’ in Narmadapuram district, two IT parks in Indore, a Mega Industrial Park in Ratlam, and six new industrial areas throughout the state were included. These initiatives are expected to contribute significantly to Madhya Pradesh’s growth and development while aligning with the government’s commitment to bolstering economic progress and infrastructure nationwide.
