After Udayanidhi’s statement came to the fore, a controversy started over it. BJP IT cell head Amit Malviya alleged that the son of Tamil Nadu CM MK Stalin and a minister in the DMK government is appealing for genocide of those who follow Sanatana Dharma. 

Malviya wrote on the social media platform X (formerly Twitter), "Udhayanidhi Stalin has linked Sanatan Dharma with Malaria and Dengue. They believe that it should be abolished, not just opposed. In short, he is calling for the genocide of 80% of India’s population who follow Sanatan Dharma." He further wrote, "The DMK is a prominent member of the opposition group (India) and an old ally of the Congress. Was this agreed upon in the Mumbai meeting?"

Udhayanidhi on BJP’s allegations

Udhayanidhi hit back at BJP’s allegations of genocide of 80 percent people and accused them of spreading fake news. Responding to Malviya’s tweet, Udhayanidhi wrote, ‘I never called for the genocide of people following Sanatan Dharma. Sanatana Dharma is such a principle which divides people in the name of caste and religion. To uproot Sanatan Dharma is to uphold humanity and human equality.’

Annamalai calls the statement Udayanidhi’s frustration

Tamil Nadu BJP president K Annamalai attacking Udhayanidhi wrote on X, "Udhayanidhi Stalin, you, your father, him or your ideologues have bought ideas from Christian missionaries and the idea of ​​those missionaries was to create fools like you to promote their malicious ideology. Tamil Nadu is the land of spirituality. The best thing you can do is grab the mic at an event like this and vent your frustration!"
