According to PTI, advocate Kaushalendra Narayan also filed a complaint in a court in Patna against Udhayanidhi Stalin over his controversial remarks on Monday.

What did Udhyanidhi Stalin say?

Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam youth wing secretary and Tamil Nadu Youth Welfare Minister Udhayanidhi Stalin had alleged on Saturday that Sanatan Dharma is against equality and social justice, and had likened it to coronavirus, malaria, fever caused by dengue virus and mosquitoes.

His remarks evoked sharp reactions from the BJP across the country, with some leaders alleging that it was a call for genocide and others demanding that Udayanidhi be booked for treason.

Udhayanidhi rubbished the genocidal claim and said his speech was a pointer to social evils.

How did BJP leaders react?

 A delegation of the BJP led by its Delhi unit President Virendra Sachdeva, MPs Harsh Vardhan and Parvesh Verma visited the Tamil Nadu House to offer a protest letter addressed to CM Stalin.

"Congress leaders are spitting venom against 'Sanatan Dharma'. They talk about 'mohabbat ki dukan'. We want to ask Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi, is this their 'mohabbat ki dukan'?" reportedly said Union Minister Arjun Ram Meghwal.

.Union Minister Prahlad Patel told PTI, "Whenever there has been an attack on the 'Sanatan Dharma' and Hindus, the Congress and the opposition have kept mum. The silence of people like Rahul Gandhi and (Arvind) Kejriwal proves that this is part of a conspiracy."
