Modi's Vision at Risk in Uttar Pradesh

  • Yogi Adityanath

Reiterating that the style of politics that Yogi Adityanath has been practising till now does any impact on Goa's politics and political developments, he said "Goa has a distinct identity, distinct history and distinct politics, so Yogi Adityanath's style of politics can never come to Goa and we are there to never allow it to come to Goa". He is the supporter of Trump's policy of banning the Muslims entry into US.

He will be sworn in tomorrow at a ceremony at Kanshiram Smriti Upvan at 2.15 PM where Prime Minister Narendra Modi and BJP chief Amit Shah will be present. The priest's followers could "become restless if he does not carry out their agenda" of religious extremism, he said, adding that it was still possible for the new chief minister to pursue Modi's development agenda.

Another target: Mother Teresa, the late Nobel Peace Prize laureate whom Adityanath once characterized as "part of a conspiracy for [the] Christianization of India".

"Modi is saying India is a Hindu country and shall remain so", veteran journalist and commentator Shekhar Gupta told Reuters.

Adityanath has in the past accused Muslim men of waging "love jihad", or a love war, to entrap Hindu women and convert them to Islam.

Known for his inflammatory speeches against Muslims, Mr Adityanath lauded Mr Trump for banning refugees and immigrants from several Muslim-majority countries from entering the USA, and said India needed similar action to check terrorism.

Modi's appointment of the Hindu hardliner could be a sign economic development is now less important than appealing to India's majority Hindus ahead of the next general election in 2019, according to Manoj Joshi, a distinguished fellow at the Observer Research Foundation in New Delhi.

Besides, the Scheduled castes and other communities are facing different intimidating policies at the hands of cruel and barbaric upper Hindu classes. It was a triumph, above all, for Modi, who was the face of the BJP campaign there.

In the past few decades, India is witnessing rise of political movements with a broad range of Hindutva centric ideologies, striving for a radical change, often creating problems for other religious minorities mainly Muslims and the Christians.

On Yoga: "Lord Shankar was the biggest Yogi who started Yoga".

Calling it a baffling choice, independent political analyst in New Delhi, Ajoy Bose said, "Everybody is a little confused as to why the Prime Minister and party president chose this name".

Securing Uttar Pradesh was crucial for Mr Modi, who campaigned tirelessly and nearly singlehandedly carried the vote. Already, the world is facing terrorist organisations like ISIS and Al-Qaeda, which have threatened the global peace. The rising trends of Hindu extremism would be worst then the ISIS and Al-Qaeda. "That fringe is now in charge of India's most populous and politically crucial state".
