Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has made it clear that violence has no place in Uttar Pradesh. In a video he tweeted on Wednesday, April 13, he pointed out that no violence had come up at a time when Hindus were celebrating Ram Navami and Muslims were observing Ramzan rituals.
Ramzan and Ram Navami go together in UP
He said: “As many as 800 Ram Navami rallies were held in UP, a state of 25 crore people. At the same time, Roza and Iftar were also being held as this is the month of Ramzan. There was not even an argument. Violence and riots are out of the question. This indicates Uttar Pradesh’s attitude to pushing itself to develop. “
“There is no place for riots, violence, or anarchy in the UP. We have proved this on the holy occasion of Ram Navami, “he said.
His comments come in the wake of communal violence that took place in various states—Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Jharkhand, and West Bengal during the procession of Ram Navmi. Several people got injured in the communal clashes, and a person lost his life in Gujarat amid the fights.
Yogi Adityanath came into power for a second term with a thumping victory in the UP assembly polls. He made the statement that Uttar Pradesh remained calm and no untoward incidents took place.
Yogi Adityanath’s comments have been claiming that there is no place for even “Tu Tu Main Main” in the state.
People raised their eyebrows when his government failed to take action against a hate speech given by a Hindu priest recently.
In his speech, the priest, along with several people gathered outside a mosque at the beginning of the Navratra festival in Sitapur district in Uttar Pradesh, the priest, Bajrang Muni, spoke openly and threatened to kidnap and rape Muslim women. Although police have registered a case, the priest has not yet been arrested.
Mayawati, the former chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, has criticised the government for the state’s poor law and order situation. She said law-and-order is now a mockery in the state.
