While a political slugfest has erupted in India over comments made on Sanatan Dharma by Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) leader Udhayanidhi Stalin, the mayor of Louisville, Kentucky, Craig Greenberg issued a proclamation declaring September 3 as Sanatan Dharma Day in the city. The announcement was made at the Hindu Temple of Kentucky in Louisville during celebrations of Maha Kumbha Abhishekam.
Justice Markandey Katju writes: In my opinion, there would have been nothing wrong if Udhayanidhi had spoken only against the caste system (to which I too am opposed) without referring to Sanatan Dharma. If he had apologized and said that he was only against the caste system the controversy would have come to an end. But perhaps that is too much to expect from a Crown Prince.
