Sadhu ‘close to Samajwadi Party’ claims Kerala floods happened due to beef eating

Kerala is grasping under the wrath of the worst flood in a century. As help is pouring in from all over the country, there is also no dearth of political gimmicks and propaganda playing over the plight of hapless citizens. There have been attempts to use the tragedy to propagate secessionist ideas, spread regionalist sentiments and many instances of fake news circulation. Now there also seem to be an attempt to stir communal discord and create unnecessary controversies.

Yesterday, self-styled ‘saint’ Chakrapani Maharaj was the centre of media attention due to some of his remarks. Chakrapani has stated that the flood in Kerala has happened due to the fact that some political leaders in Kerala slaughtered a cow on the streets and made a cruel show of eating beef.

Interestingly, this was not the first time Chakrapani Maharaj has been in the news. Previously in 2016, he was part of a five-member team formed by the then Samajwadi party government to look into the ‘Kairana exodus’ and had given a report that it is only a conspiracy by BJP.

Netizens claimed that Chakrapani Maharaj was close to Samajwadi Party and is their ‘prime supporter’.

This is the team that rubbished the Kairana exodus of Hindus a “conspiracy”. The person circled in the picture is Chakrapani Maharaj who is seen with the then Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav and Acharya Pramod K (in white), who had contested the 2014 general elections on a Congress ticket. Interestingly, both Chakrapani Maharaj and Acharya Pramod K were deemed ‘fake babas‘ by the All India Akhara Parishad.

In June this year, he was also seen praising Samajwadi party’s former CM Akhilesh Yadav. Before the UP assembly elections, he had even gone on record to state that BSP supremo Mayawati is the one true leader of this country. ‘Sirf Dalit ki Nahi, Desh Ki Beti Hain Mayawati Ji’ was his statement in December 2016. He had added that the women of the country will be safe in Mayawati’s able hands and he will support Mayawati as the next CM of UP.

Here is another photograph where both can be seen with senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh. The leader who has repeatedly made remarks to fan the “Hindu terror” narrative and had also released a book titled “26/11: RSS Ki Saazish”.

Chakrapani has also often times made statements against PM Modi and UP CM Yogi Adityanath.

As Chakrapani’s statement was picked up by almost all major media outlets withing no time and stirred a controversy, many on social media had wondered whether his statement was a politically motivated attempt to deliberately embarrass Hindu priests.

Many people on social media were also concerned over the fact that while there are countless people and groups carrying out relief and rescue work in Kerala, how did mainstream media paint a self-proclaimed Sadhu as the voice of all Hindus.
