It’s 80% vs 20% in U.P. Assembly election, says Yogi Adityanath

Date: 10 january 2021

The 2022 Uttar Pradesh Assembly election had progressed to a battle of 80% vs 20%, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said on Sunday, perhaps subtly hinting at the religious composition in the State where Muslims make up over 19% of the population.

Responding to a question on why Brahmins in the State should vote for the BJP when the Opposition SP and BSP were wooing the caste to defeat the party, Mr. Adityanath said the fight had advanced much further from there.

“Yeh ladai usse bahut agay ja chuki hain. Yeh ladai assi banam bees ki ho chuki hain [This fight has already moved ahead from there. This fight has become a fight of 80 vs. 20],” Mr. When the anchor hinted if he meant 19% when he said 20%, a reference to the State’s Muslim population, Mr. Adityanath said 80% of the voters who favour nationalism, good governance and development would press the BJP’s lotus button in the election. And those who are against nationalism, development and farmers and are supporters of mafia and criminals, and back professionals rioters and corrupt persons and embrace anti-India elements, “those 15-20 percent people will choose a different path,” Mr. Adityanath noted.

The Chief Minister further said that the Brahmins would provide leadership to this election of the ‘80 versus 20’.

“Brahmin doesn’t mean caste but prabudh samaj [learned community],” Mr. Adityanath added.




Godman declares Islam aims to ‘capture’ nation through politics

Date: 30 december 2021

A Hindu religious leader from Maharashtra who insulted Mahatma Gandhi and praised his assassin, Nathuram Godse, has been arrested by the Chhattisgarh Police from Madhya Pradesh's Khajuraho and charged with sedition.

Kalicharan Maharaj, whose controversial speech at a "dharma sansad" or religious meeting in Chhattisgarh's Raipur led to chief patron Mahant Ramsunder Das disowning the event and walking off stage in anger, was also charged with promoting enmity between communities after former mayor Pramod Dubey filed a police case.

In his speech - clips of which have been widely circulated on social media, Kalicharan Maharaj declares that the aim of Islam is to capture the nation through politics. He also declared "Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi destroyed the country... salutations to Nathuram Godse, who killed him".

Kalicharan Maharaj demanded people elect a "staunch Hindu leader" to "protect" Hinduism.




Islam a ‘terrorist unit,’ says Waseem Rizvi as he embraces Hinduism

Date: 6 december 2021

Former Uttar Pradesh Shia waqf board chairman Waseem Rizvi denounced Islam as a “terrorist unit” while professing allegiance to Sanatan dharma. On 6 December,  Rizvi declared that he accepted Hinduism.

“There is no question of my having given up Islam as I had already been banished from it,” he said.

Rizvi’s conversion has been facilitated by Yati Narsinghanand Saraswati, the head priest of Ghaziabad’s Dasna Devi Temple in Ghaziabad. The temple made it to the news earlier this year when a 14-year-old Muslim boy was beaten up for entering the premises to drink water from a tap.

Saraswati said, “His (Rizvi) entry into Hinduism is very welcome. He has returned to his origins”.

Rizvi’s new name will be Jeetendra Narayan Singh Tyagi. It is a name of uncertain caste origins.

“Muslims have been misled into believing that Hinduism is a discriminatory religion on the basis of caste,” said Saraswati.

The name, Saraswati said, was significant because he himself was a Tyagi. “My father had two sons. One son was given to religion. Now he will again have two sons,” he said.




ex-IPS officer Vanzara points to high Muslim numbers in India, says situation is ‘dangerous’

Date: 23 december 2021

Claiming that "Hindus are in danger", controversial ex-IPS officer D G Vanzara in a provocative speech in Gandhinagar in front of thousands of people demanded: "India be declared a Hindu rashtra by establishing dharma satta (reign of religion)." 

Vanzara, who spent nearly eight years in jail in Sohrabuddin Sheikh and Ishrat Jahan encounter cases before being discharged by the trial court, made these statements while speaking at a religious function. The function named "Dharmasatta Mahakumbh" 

"In 1947, India's population was 48 crore, of which 8 crore were Muslims. The 8 crore weighed heavily on 40 crore. Of them, five crore went to Pakistan and three crore remained here. Today, they are 23 crore. It is noteworthy to think what will happen now…next 25 years is dangerous”.




This assessment identifies the risk—the possibility—that a mass killing may take place. On average, one or two countries experience a new episode of mass killing each year. But relative infrequency does not make the brutality less devastating for victims: a mass killing, by our definition, is 1,000 or more civilians deliberately killed by armed forces (whether government or non-state), over a period of a year or less, because of their membership in a particular group. Virtually all cases of genocide include mass killings that meet this definition.
