In Gaya, Bihar, PM Narendra Modi said that 80–90% of the people who drafted the Indian Constitution were Sanatanis

Inquiring about individuals who misuse Sanatan Dharma, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that “80–90% of the people in the Constituent Assembly that made the Constitution of India were Sanatanis” during a rally in Gaya, Bihar, on Tuesday.

“Dr. Rajendra Prasad had a significant role in the constitution’s creation. It was prepared by Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar.”Those who misuse Sanatan should pay close attention to the fact that 80–90% of the members of the Constituent Assembly who drafted the Indian Constitution were Sanatanis, and those Sanatanis helped Ambedkar create such a wonderful document,” he said.

“Our Constitution is pure,” PM Modi said. A flourishing India was the ambition of the Constitution’s founders. But the Congress party, which dominated the nation for decades, missed the chance.By your “sevak,” 25 crore impoverished people have been lifted out of poverty.”

The Prime Minister was cited in a Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) tweet as stating, “The haughty alliance members question why pass 400? The nation’s citizens have made the decision to surpass 400! as the nation’s citizens want to see India developed by 2047. However, the people of the nation want to award 400 votes to the NDA in order to punish those who plunder the nation, engage in corruption, and meddle with the Constitution. In addition to helping the NDA win, another goal of this election is to punish those who often do harm on the nation. Consequently, the count will surpass 400.”

Modi said that Congressman Mallikarjun Kharge protested to his government’s November 26 Constitution Day celebration. “Modi’s ‘guarantee card’ has been revised for the next five years. There are plans to build three crore residences for the impoverished, provide free rations for the next five years, provide free treatment up to Rs 5 lakhs for people over 70, and extend the PM-Kisan Samman Nidhi. These are all assurances from PM Modi,” he said. “Ghamandia Gathbandhan lacks both trust and vision.” They base their requests for votes on the efforts made by Bihar Chief Minister Nitish Kumar. “The Prime Minister stated that the entire state of Bihar is aware of the reason behind their attempt to claim credit for the work done by Nitish and the central government. The RJD is accountable for the devastation of Bihar through their land for jobs and fodder scams.”

Any Hindu, regardless of class, caste, or sect, is required to follow the “eternal” or “absolute” set of obligations or religiously mandated rituals known as Sanatan Dharma. Sanatan Dharma’s principles are outlined in Vedic texts including the Bhagavad Gita, Mahabharata, and Ramayana. Virtues, moksha, yoga, reincarnation, Karma, Paap, and Punya are a few of the tenets and practices. The Varna system, which separates society into four varnas or groups—brahmana (priests), Kshatriya (kings/administrators), Vaisya (merchants), and Shudra (workers)—based on each individual’s nature and inclinations, served as the foundation for the social framework of the Sanatan Dharma. Contrary to popular belief, there are three sufficient indications in the scriptures that the varna may alter. The scriptures advise determining a person’s varna or caste based on his guna (nature) and actions rather than only his birth certificate.

Tamil Nadu minister Udhayanidhi Stalin stirred up controversy in September of last year when he compared the phrase “Sanatana Dharma” to illnesses like dengue and malaria and said that it need to be “eradicated” rather than just rejected. The comment caused a huge uproar on social media and drew harsh condemnation from BJP officials. Stalin is competing for the Indian National Democratic Alliance (NDA), which is headed by the BJP, alongside the Congress-led Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance (INDIA) group.

Many have asserted that the Constitution has a Sanatan connection:

Article 1(1) declares that “India, that is, Bharat, shall be a Union of States.” The stories of old Hindu customs are the source of the name Bharat. “The country that lies north of the ocean and south of the snowy mountains is called Bharat because there dwell the descendants of the Bharat,” the Vishnu Purana states. The prime minister recently mentioned this in his address to the Lok Sabha. Since the period of the Mahabharata, India has been referred to as Bharatvarsha, after the monarch Bharata. He was the son of Hastinapur’s King Dushyanta and Queen Sakuntala. The whole Bharatvarsha was subjugated by the mighty monarch Bharat (region covering the Indian subcontinent as of today).

Union of States: The term “Union of States” refers to the cultural-historical reality that a multicultural, multiple, and tolerant society with a multitude of subcultures coexisting and flourishing has been the foundation of Hindu civilization in India.

The Constituent Assembly of India was founded in 1946 with delegates chosen indirectly to design a constitution for all of India, including Bangladesh and Pakistan. The new president is Rajendra Prasad. Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar established the “Drafting Committee,” a seven-member group, on August 29, 1947. The other members were N. Gopalaswami, Alladi Krishnaswami Ayyas, K.M. Munshi, Saijo Mola Saadulla, N. Madhava Rao, and D.P. Khaitan, with Dr. BR Ambedkar serving as the chairman.

A total of twenty-two committees were established by the Constituent Assembly to handle various aspects of the constitution-making process. Eight of them were significant committees, while the other ones were smaller groups. Ambedkar, Nehru, Sardar Patel, JB Kripalani, G V Mavlankar, Harendra Coomar Mookerjee, B Pattabhi Sitaramayya, Moturi Satyanarayana, AV Thakkar, and Gopinath Bordoloi were among the influential individuals heading the committee. Benegal Narsing Rau, Deep Narayan Singh, P. Subbarayan, Kailash Nath Katju, TT Krishnamachari, Rameshwar Prasad Sinha, Durgabai Deshmukh, M. Mohammed Ismael, Krishna Ballabh Sahay, Frank Anthony, Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, John Mathai, Pratap Singh Kairon, K Kamaraj, Chidambaram Subramaniam, Jaipal Singh Munda, Hargovind Pant, Kala Venkata Rao, Hifzur Rahman Seoharwi, and Ranbir Singh Hooda were among the notable members of the constituent assembly in addition to Nehru, Patel, Prasad, Ambedkar, and members of the drafting committee.
