Amid Row Over Ramcharitmanas, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister’s Remark

Yogi Adityanath, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, attacked the Samajwadi party on Saturday in response to the Ramcharitmanas controversy in the state assembly by comparing it to what would have happened if other sacred texts had been insulted.

In addition to fabricating the incident during the Global Investors Summit, which was held in Lucknow earlier this month, Yogi Adityanath accused the party of trying to “insult” the Hindu community in India and around the world.

“The moment Global Investors Summit was about to begin, the Samajwadi Party started the Ramcharitmanas row about Tulsi Das ji. Some people tried to tear Ramcharitmanas. What would have happened if the same thing would have happened with some other religion? Does it mean whoever wants to insult Hindus, can do it? You want to insult the entire (Hindu) community,” he said during his Address in the ongoing Budget Session.

The phrases from the Hindu text were read aloud by the chief minister, who also clarified their meaning.His comments followed Samajwadi Party leader Swamy Prasad Maurya’s call for the removal of “insulting insults and sarcasm” directed at specific castes and religions from the Ramcharitmanas, a poem based on the epic Ramayana, which caused a significant uproar.The Ramcharitmanas, written by Tulsidas, allegedly contains words that are hurtful to the Dalit community, according to Mr. Maurya.

On January 30, Mr. Maurya made fun of Mahant Raju Das by claiming that he could have simply cursed him rather than shelling out $215,000 to have him killed.

In a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Mr. Maurya had asked that certain passages of the epic be changed or banned because they allegedly demean women and Dalits.
