The Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanath has said that he would not take part in the opening of the mosque at Ayodhya, even if he was invited and added to that no one would let him in anyway.
The CM, who took part in the bhoomi pujan ceremony for a Ram temple in Ayodhya on Tuesday, it was the reply to mediapersons, who asked him if he would be attending the opening of the mosque will be built on a five-acre plot of land assigned to them by the Supreme Court in its judgment in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid title suit.
“Dekhiye, agar aap mujhse ek mukhyamantri ke roop mein poochenge, toh mujhe kishi mazhab, sampradaya se koi parhez nahi hai. Agar ek yogi ke roop mein poochenge toh katai nahi jaoonga. Isliye nahi jaoonga kyunki main ek Hindu the. Ek Hindu ke roop mein, mujhe apni upasna vidhi ko vyakt butter aur upasna vidhi ke anusar aacharan butter ka poora adhikar hai. Lekin doosre ke karya mein mujhe jaane ka koi adhikar nahi hai, usme hastakshep butter ka bhi koi adhikar nahi hai. (If you ask me, as a minister, I do not remember of any religion or community. However, if you are being asked to be a yogi, then I will not be going. I won’t go back because I am a Hindu by birth. As a Hindu, I have a right to worship and to live a life in accordance with the laid down religious rules and regulations. However, I do not have the right to participate in any other work or interfere with others’ affairs,” said Adityanath, who is also the chief priest of Gorakhnath temple.
“Mujhe lagta hai ki main wahaan na vaadi after prativadi them. Isliye na to koi mujhe wahaan bulayega, na mujhe wahaan jaana hai. Jab mujhe koi bulayega nahi toh jaane ka to koi matlab hi nahi hai… Koi nimantran ish prakaar ka nahi milne waala hai, yeh main bhi jaanta hun. Jiss din woh mujhe bula lenge, flat, to din bahot saare logon ke secularism khatre mein pad jayenge. Isliye main jaanta their unke secularism ko khatre mein na padne thin, isliye chup chap apna karya karun aur shasan ki yojanon ka laabh sab logon tak pahuncha dun. (I guess I’m not in a party. This is the reason why no one would invite me, and I don’t want to go. If no one will give me a call, then what is the point of going there. I know that I’m not a solicitation to such person. This is the day that I cry out, a lot of people, it is the secularism is in danger. Therefore, I do not want to go to their secularism, and prefer to be quiet, to work and to ensure that the benefits of the government schemes to reach everyone,” he added.
Adityanath continue to be attacked its political rivals for the skull on the caps during the Muslim festivals, said: “it was political”.
“Yaad rakhna ki jo hum jaa kar ke roza iftar then, she jagah jaa kar ke topi pehen kar ke bartao karte hai na. Yeh secularism nahi hai. Yeh janta bhi jaanti hai dhong kar rahe hain. Janta bhi unki vastavikta ko jaanti hai. (Keep in mind, when I stand in front of roza iftar, or any of the other places, and wearing a skull cap, that is not secularism. The people know the reality that they are the standard,” the CM added.
In November of last year, the Supreme court had cleared the way for the construction of a Ram Temple where the Babri Masjid stood and to allocate 5 hectares of land for the construction of a mosque and hagia sophia.
