Yogi Adityanath gets a legal notice for a comment which was misreported by the media

Rajasthan Sarv Brahmin Mahasabha president Suresh Mishra has sent a legal notice to Adityanath, accusing him of using Lord Hanuman’s caste for political gain for the BJP in the upcoming elections.

A right-wing group in Rajasthan has sent a legal notice to Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath asking him to apologise within three days after some media misreported saying Uttar Pradesh CM referred Lord Hanuman to a Dalit.

Rajasthan Sarv Brahmin Mahasabha president Suresh Mishra has sent a legal notice to Adityanath, accusing him of using Lord Hanuman’s caste for political gain for the BJP in the upcoming elections. Reportedly, the notice said that Yogi Adityanath’s statement has hurt religious sentiments of several devotees.

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s campaign rally speech at Alwar, Rajasthan was wrongly reported by some media outlets. Times Now had reported that Yogi Adityanath during his speech, he had said, “Lord Hanuman was Dalit who united India from east to west, north to south.”

However, we did a fact check regarding Yogi Adityanath’s speech and found that UP CM did not make any such statements rather the media twisted his statements to give it a Dalit angle. Yogi Adityanath in his speech did not refer Lord Hanuman as a Dalit, rather called Lord Hanuman as a God who lives in the forest and does not discriminate his devotees and takes all strata of people along.

Yogi Adityanath said, “In Indian tradition, Bajrangbali is loved by all, lives in a forest and has no place to call it home. The Dalits, the deprived, He (Lord Hanuman) takes them all, everyone in the Indian community, from the north to the south, from the east to the west, together. Bajrangbali has carried out the task of uniting everyone. Hence, (voting for BJP) should be a Bajrangi Sankalp (vow).”

It is evident from Yogi Adityanath’s statement that what the media reported was a complete fabrication of the truth and what he said.
