“Respect All Religions, But If People Indulge In Ugly Display Of Their Faith…”: CM Yogi Warns

Lucknow: Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said that his government will give equal respect to all religions. He has also warned that if people indulge in an ugly display of their faith to harass others, it won’t be tolerated. Speaking with officers via video conferencing, he said the show of communal amity on the occasion of Ram Navami has given a new identity to Uttar Pradesh.

“Some people tried to pollute this atmosphere on the occasion of Hanuman Jayanti, but they have been taken care of,” the CM said. He also asked the officers to gear up for May 3, when Eid and Akshaya Tritiya are likely to be celebrated together. 

He further stressed the role of dialogue in a democracy. He further cited how smoothly loudspeakers in religious places have been regulated across the state. The men in khaki have been on overdrive for the past one week to bring down the loudspeakers that have been put up at religious places without prior permission or reason.

CM Yogi Adityanath said that Uttar Pradesh has set an example before the country by removing unnecessary loudspeakers installed at religious places. They have also reduced the volumes of loudspeakers across the state with harmony.

“Instructions given for the use of loudspeakers should be implemented strictly. The people should not face inconvenience and loudspeakers should not be installed at new sites,” Yogi said.

The chief minister was reviewing law and order with officers posted at divisions, districts, tehsils, and blocks via video conferencing with officials.

The festival of Akshaya Tritya and Eid will be celebrated on May 3. The police and administrative officers should remain alert, Yogi said.

He also said, “We proved that Uttar Pradesh can remain free of riots and can become an example of communal harmony. It’s a major achievement of our government.”
