Tamil Nadu Finance Minister PTR Palanivel Thiagarajan’s tweet mocking Jaggi Vasudev (Sadhguru) on his old tweet about Hinduism is not a religion but a geographical identity was trending on Twitter.
Finance Minister PTR has again stirred up the internet by responding to a tweet posted by Jaggi Vasudev a few years ago regarding who is a Hindu. The Minister responded to the old tweet of Jaggi Vasudev from 2015 which says “Hindu is a geographical identity. If an elephant in Africa is African. The earthworm in India is a Hindu.”
Minister PTR took a brutal dig at Sadhguru’s Hindu- African analogy. Sharing a screenshot of the old tweet of Jaggi Vasudev, he tweeted, “Africa is a continent; India is a country & republic; Hindu is a religion & belief. Similarly, Charlatan claims to have a special knowledge or skill which he does not really have. “ He further mocks Sadhguru by calling him Multi-DIMENSION-al Charlatan.
This tweet of the Finance Minister has become quite viral on social media. Tamil superstar actor Siddharth Suryanarayan has also taken a potshot at Sadhguru. He retweeted PTR’s tweet and wrote that shots fired and Jaggi lost. The minister’s and Siddharth’s retweets were trending on Twitter.
Tamil Nadu Finance Minister Palanivel Thiagarajan has been harshly criticizing Sadhguru since he took over as minister. In an interview with an English news agency, he said that Jaggi Vasudev is a publicity hound and charlatan who is trying to find another angle to make more money.”
