Rahul Gandhi said, “I read Islam, read Christianity, read Buddhism, know Hinduism. No religion asks to spread hatred.”
New Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi called Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath a thug. He accused the BJP of indulging in “adharam” in Uttar Pradesh. He said Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath cannot be a religious leader because of the language he uses.
India Today reported that an attendee at the meeting which was not open to the media quoted that at the meeting Congress Leader said, UP CM is not a religious leader, he is a common thug. Gandhi claimed that Adityanath was “insulting the heritage of his Gorakhnath Math by the kind of language he was using,” at an interaction with members of civil society about the just finished Bharat Jodo Yatra at the Delhi Constitution Club.
At the meeting, Rahul Gandhi was questioned about the situation in Uttar Pradesh. In his reply, Rahul Gandhi said, “No religion is promoting violence in Uttar Pradesh, but Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath cannot be called a religious leader because of his language. One does not become a religious leader just by wearing saffron. I would like to apologize, but Adityanath is not a religious leader, but a common thug. BJP is spreading ‘adharam’ in Uttar Pradesh.”
Rahul Gandhi further said that no religion spreads hatred. Congress is a party of ascetics, he added.
He said, “There is no storm of religion in Uttar Pradesh. I read Islam, read Christianity, read Buddhism, know Hinduism. No religion asks to spread hatred. As soon as one stops doing tapasya, he goes into a state of delusion. Congress is a party of ascetics, and BJP and Sangh run opposite to this. Bharat Jodo Yatra is the first and small step. We will make more such efforts in the future.”
Recently, Yogi Adityanath addressing an event stated, “Leaders like Rahul Gandhi in the opposition are making the job easier for the BJP. They are really creating a favorable environment for the BJP. Since 1947, the Congress has been dividing the country in the name of caste-religion.”
