‘Never use the term Hindu,’ preacher rants against Hinduism in front of DMK chief MK Stalin at Christmas event, says ‘no religion called Hinduism’: Details

The statement has sparked quite the outrage on social media with calls being made to reject DMK with state elections looming around the corner.

The rampant Hinduphobia that has come to dominate certain political parties was evident during a recent speech that was made in the presence of DMK president M.K. Stalin. Kalaiarasi Natarajan, a preacher, declared that there is no religion such as Hinduism and claimed that ‘we are all Shaivites’.

The speech was made at a Christmas event organised by the DMK in the run-up to the festival. She said, “Tamil denotes Saivas. Saivites are Tamils. No matter where they are and which religion they follow or ‘create’, they are Tamils. Fundamentally, they are Saivites. Here in Tamil Nadu, the Christians and Muslims are old Tamils. They are our umbilical cord relatives. ..one of the speakers mentioned the word ‘Hinduism’.. I am disheartened by the usage of that term. Please don’t use the word ‘Hindu’ religion. There is no such thing as Hinduism. It is only 200 years old. We are Saivites. We were there even before the stone age. Whether they are Muslims or Christians, they are our umbilical cord. They are our brothers. They are our kith and kin.”

Kalaiarasi stated further, “Never use the word ‘Hindu’. It is because you use the term ‘Hindu’ that it becomes our weakness. Never use that henceforth. There is no such thing as ‘Hindu’ religion.” “Nowadays, when you hear the word ‘Hindu’, the whole body burns. I feel disgusted to listen to Hindu religious stories”, she added.

Reportedly, the Christian leaders who attended the event and even the DMK Chief clapped at the incendiary speech. The statement has sparked quite the outrage on social media with calls being made to reject DMK with state elections looming around the corner.

Only days earlier, controversial Christian evangelist pastor and DMK supporter Bishop Ezra Sargunam hurled abusive remarks against Prime Minister Modi, saying he did not have any merit to rule the country as he could not live with his wife for even five days.

Speaking at the MK Stalin-led event, Ezra Sargunam attacked Modi government over its policies and said that whatever they are speaking at the event should echo in Delhi. He said the speeches made at the event should fall in the ears of Modi.

“He is not going to change his mind anyway. He is a man who has come to loot the country and is doing his job correctly. His duty is to support the four rich men. He doesn’t care about the poor. But he will keep saying ‘I was born poor, I sold tea, I am living my life for the poor’. But friends, he keeps doing exactly the opposite,” said Bishop Ezra Sargunam making vile remarks against Prime Minister.
