“Take Up Arms”: Yati Narsinghanand At It Again! Booked For Hate Speech At Delhi ‘Hindu Mahapanchayat’

New Delhi: Yati Narsinghanand, the infamous head priest of the Dasna Devi temple, stirred yet another controversy on Sunday when he said that if a Muslim became India’s prime minister, “50 percent of Hindus will convert” in 20 years, exhorting Hindus to take up arms to fight for their survival.

Following his controversial speech, an FIR under sections 153A (Promoting enmity between different groups on grounds of religion, race, place of birth, residence, language…) and 188 of the Indian Penal Code was filed by the Delhi Police.

Earlier, Yati Narsinghanand was arrested for making a provocative speech against Muslims at a Dharam Sansad in Haridwar in December 2021. He was later granted bail.

What Did He Say?

A video of Yati Narsinghanand speaking at the event on Sunday has emerged on social media. HW News has not yet verified the authenticity of the video.

Addressing a ‘Hindu Mahapanchayat’, organised by Preet Singh, founder of the Save India Foundation, at New Delhi’s Burari ground, Narsinghanand, “Only in 2029 or in 2034 or in 2039, a Muslim will become the prime minister. Once a Muslim will become the PM, 50 per cent Hindus will convert, 40 per cent will be killed and the remaining 10 per cent will either live in refugee camps or in other countries in the next 20 years.”

“This will be the future of the Hindus. If you want to avoid this future, then become a man and take up arms,” Narsinghanand is seen saying in a video of the Mahapanchayat which is being circulated on social media.
