Twitter Row -Donald Trump Congratulates Yogi Adityanath
This week has been of quite a buzz on social media for UP Elections and the mega win of BJP in the state elections. Contrary to media reports that Yogi Adityanath was a “surprise” choice as BJP’s chief minister for Uttar Pradesh, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and party chief Amit Shah had always considered the Gorakhpur sanyasi as a strong contender.
Yogi Adityanath calls himself a gau-sevak (servant of cows) and works at the gaushala (cowshed) maintained at Goraksh Nath Math. During the Assembly election, Adityanath promised to shut down all the illegal slaughterhouses in Uttar Pradesh and to ensure that no cow is killed in abattoirs across the state.
Their has been mixed reaction about the priest of Gorakhpur becoming Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister. This is how twitter reacted to this news:
We do not know who did it but this tweet took the social media by storm , USA President Donald Trump congratulating Yogi Adityanath. This has been gut-busting .
Muslims however have been quit disappointed over such the decision of the government ,expressing deep disappointment over the Bharatiya Janata Party’s decision to elect their firebrand leader Yogi Adityanath’s as Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh, Muslim Cleric Maulana Mohammad Sajid Rashidi questioned the saffron party that how can a man with a history of propagating divisive agenda lead Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s development plans for the state.
The BJP named Yogi Adityanath as the next Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister while Keshav Prasad Maurya and Dinesh Sharma have been appointed as the deputy chief ministers of the state.
Barkha dutt’s tweet though makes some sense because his rise is based on polarization & his anti minority stuff is on record. Moreover Hitler too was elevated democratically
Now why do Hindus say that India is secular because Hindus are secular? It means Indians treat and respect all religions equally irrespective of its size in India ,whether its majority or minority. secularism of Hinduism is to the fact that it’s a religion that always celebrated individuality.It is a religion that has more gods than the number of people who follow it having said that, couple of other gods like Jesus, Allah, Buddha etc won’t make a difference to the million other gods that already people worship. This hold true for the educated secular Indians who believe in tolerance and understand the diverse nature of this country. however the more radical Hindu’s who believe in “Hindutava” and making India a Hindu “Rashtra” have completely different ideologies.
Indian Prime minister who avoids tweets on some more complex and important issues in the country like Kashmir and use of PelletGuns in the valley ,Killing of Dalits ,JNU and Right wing rowdyism and beef ban but comes up prompt on congratulating Mr. Yogi on becoming the chief minister of Utter Pradesh.
Arun jaitlelys tweet however received quit rollicking reply
Adityanath’s recent hate speeches against Muslims at least 13 percent of Muslims voted for the BJP in the state assembly polls believing in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s development agenda for Uttar Pradesh, but now they are deeply disappointed with latter’s selection.Now Utter Pradesh is going to witness a different politics something which the state is not used to and time will tell how this saffron hero will hold the state together towards Modi’s vision of development.
