As Arvind Kejriwal declares himself ‘Ram bhakt’, netizens remind him of his anti-Hindu comments

Arvind Kejriwal's sudden 'Hindu' assertion does not go down too well with Netizens, remind him of his anti-Hindu statements.

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal on Wednesday declared himself a devotee of Lord Hanuman. He also claimed that since Lord Hanuman is a devotee of Lord Ram, by extension, even he is so.

Kejriwal announced that after the Ram Mandir is constructed in Ayodhya, he will take the elderly people from Delhi to Ayodhya for darshan. Except, Arvind Kejriwal’s assertion of his Hindu identity did not go down that well with netizens who reminded him of his own previous tweets and statements where he not only mocked, but insulted Hinduism.

Kejriwal had earlier questioned the construction of same Ram Mandir where he wants to take Delhi’s elderly for pilgrimage.

When Leftist students at JNU had attacked ABVP students in January 2020 over semester form in Jawaharlal Nehru University, Kejriwal had shared above cartoon to depict how Lord Hanuman, of whom he is a devotee, ‘set fire’ to JNU as a distraction.

Ahead of 2019 general elections, Kejriwal had shared an image where a man with a broom can be seen hitting the Swastika symbol, a symbol holy to Hindus, Buddhists and Jains.

Netizens also mocked that after having taken the made-in-India Chinese coronavirus vaccine, Kejriwal seems to have had sudden change of heart.

However, not everyone called him out for his soft-Hindutva ahead of UP elections where AAP wants to contest. Many were upset for him straying from his ‘secular’ credentials.

Similarly, some were upset how he ‘ended up’ being a Ram Bhakt.

He was also accused of ‘pandering out to religious majority’.

This is not all. Kejriwal and his party has time and again insulted Hindus.

AAP tweet

In August last year, the official Twitter handle of AAP had shared pictures of Kanchenjunga in Sikkim, Kamet Peak, and Nanda Devi hills in Uttarakhand and drew analogies with a humongous landfill at Ghazipur in Delhi. The contentious tweet was accompanied by the caption, “Highest Mountains of India.”

In 2016, during the run-up to the Punjab assembly elections, AAP’s youth manifesto had an image of AAP election symbol, the broom, on the holy pool at The Golden Temple.
