Won’t attend mosque inauguration, says Yogi Adityanath

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath remarked that he would not attend the inauguration of the mosque to be built in Ayodhya, replacing the demolished Babri Masjid.

Adityanath said he couldn’t go for the mosque inauguration “as a yogi and as a Hindu”, in an interview to a television channel on Thursday.

“If you ask me as a chief minister, I have no problem with any belief, religion or community. If you ask me as a yogi, I will definitely not go because as a Hindu I have the right to express my ‘upasana vidhi’ (way of worship) and act accordingly,” Adityanath had said.

“I am neither ‘vaadi or “prativadi’ (petitioner nor respondent). That is why neither will I be invited, nor will I go. I know, I won’t be getting any such invitation,” he said.

“The day they invite me, secularism of many will be in danger. That’s why I want that their secularism should not be in danger and I continue to silently work to ensure that everyone benefits from government scheme without any discrimination,” he said.

He claimed that the Congress never wanted a solution to the dispute. “They wanted the dispute to continue for their political benefit.”

“Attending roza-iftar with a skull cap is not secularism. People also know that this is drama. People know the reality,” the CM said.
