If offering namaz on road cannot be banned, how can I ban janmashtami in police stations: Yogi Adityanath

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath stated that he has no authority to ban the celebration of janmashtami in police stations because he also cannot ban the offering of namaz on roads during the festival of Eid.

He also said that after being briefed by officers regarding the usage of microphones, DJs and music systems during the Kanwar Yatra, he had asked the administration if a ban on the sound could be enforced and if such a thing was impossible, then the Yatra would continue as it always had.

He said in Nepal, Mauritius or any country where Hindus of Indian origin live, they feel proud to be called Hindus. “But if we say the same in India, we will be called communal,” he said.

Maine prashasan se kaha… sabhi pradeshon ke jo adhikari aaye thay… maine kaha ki mere saamne ek aadesh paarit kariye phir ki mike har jagah ke liye partibandhit honi chahiye… har jagah ban karo… aur yeh tay kariye ki kisi bhi dharmsthal mein… uski premises ke bahar, uski awaaz aani hi nahi chahiye… kya isko laagu kar payenge?…Agar laagu nahin kar sakte hain to phir isko bhi hum laagu nahi hone denge… yatra chalegi,” leading daily Indian Express quoted Yogi Adityanath as saying.

However, he mentioned at the event organised by the Prerna Jansanchar Evam Shidh Sansthan, Noida and Lucknow Jansanchar Evam Patrakarita Sansthan that when he was told so by the officers, he stated that how would it be a Kanwar Yatra if music was not played.

“I asked if this was a kanwar yatra or a funeral procession. If they don’t play music and drums, don’t dance and sing, don’t use the mike, how will it be a kanwar yatra,” he said.

According to the Indian Express, the monk politician also said that those trying to strengthen the cultural unity of the country were being called communal.

He said in Nepal, Mauritius or any country where Hindus of Indian origin live, they feel proud to be called Hindus. “But if we say the same in India, we will be called communal,” he said.

    Actually, Janmashtami must be celebrated in Police Stations, as actually Lord Krishna was born under captivity, in a Jail.
