TR Balu controversy: The Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (DMK) is a regional political party in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. The party’s stance towards Hinduism has always been a matter of debate and criticism over the years. It was founded in 1949 by C.N. Annadurai was initially focused on the upliftment of the Dravidian people, but has ended up supressing the very class since its advent.
If we look at with non-prejudice mind the party has long history for its strong anti-Hindu stance, and decisive politics on regional card. The very foundation of DMK was as an effort to oppose the Brahmin-dominated Congress Party back in 1950’s and 196o’s but sadly went on to become oine more pathetic group of ideas opposing Hinduism agt large and nothing more. In the 1950s and 1960s, the DMK began to increasingly focus on Hindu-bashing and often accused upper-castes of oppressing the Dravidian people. However, their theory of the Dravidian and Aryan, to score brownies itself has been challenged following the Archaeological Survey of India’s survey in the Sinauli village of Uttar Pradesh.
Recent Anti-Hindu Act by DMK
DMK men, or members of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam political party in India, take pride in demolishing hundred-year-old Hindu temples and it is nothing new as this has been part of their political ideology. They also believe that the traditional Hindu religion is responsible for the oppression of the lower classes and the denial of their rights.
Recently, a video was shared by BJP leader Annamali on twitter. In where it was clearly visible how elated TR Balu felt when he dismantled several temples such as Laxmi temples, Parvati temples and many more.

Although the demolishing of Hindu temples is a controversial and divisive issue an act of vandalism and disrespect to the Hindu religion. Some argue that the demolition view it as a necessary step for development.
The DMK’s TR Balu actions have caused outrage in India, particularly in Hindu communities. The party has been accused of encouraging hatred and violence against Hindus and inciting communal tension between different religious groups. And this can lead to widespread protests and demonstrations against the DMK and its actions.

This Mindset is Threat to National Security
Despite the controversy, the DMK and its members remain committed to their beliefs and continue to promote their ideology through the demolition of Hindu temples.
It is outrageous that TR Balu can get away with making inflammatory statements that hurt the Hindu community simply because TR Balu is using Tamil may not reach to major section of people outside Tamil Nadu.
What if citizens took this matter to the streets, with more than 80% Hindus in the Tamil Nadu population, it would be pandemonium that Udhayanidhi Stalin or his father M.K Stalin would not be able to sustain. DMK should understand and respect the sentiments of the majorities because appeasement politics has already seen its doom.
Back in 1972, The DMK’s aggressive anti-Hindu rhetoric had resulted in the party’s disastrous split, when M. Karunanidhi, Udhayanidhi Stalin’s grandfather, took an even more hostile stance towards Hinduism. This resulted in the formation of the AIADMK, or the All-India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam. Hope they will take this as a lesson from history and not make the same mistake again.
