Seems like a self goal by BJP or a deep ploy..Too complex to make any sense... :Sigh:

Hiren



I am not a supporter of Yogi Aditya Nath.

However, he has equal rights as others to become a CM. Don't just hate him just because he is an "Yogi" and wears saffron clothes. He should be judged based on his ability to rule a state as per democratic values. Hating him is also an extreme case of intolerance.

I am sorry, I don't think there was any hate in my post. I am just alarmed at this choice. A 4 time MLA from same seat and there is hardly any thing to show for his productivity except Ghar vapsi and love jihad kind of activities. By choosing such a polarising individual as CM of an important state IMO is a step backwards from development agenda of NaMo and Amit Shah. So unless there is a very complex political maneuver, the appointment seems illogical.

Anyways good luck to the new government.

Hiren

Hiren, you don't need to feel sorry!

I personally didn't knew much about him. Exactly what you said - anything that is painted by Media - and that can be manipulative - was in my mind as well. We have experience the treatment of NaMo during the decade by the same Media.

I was listening to one of the discussion and an unknown panelist from UP, an author of a book, told the panel that He is one of the top-most active MPs in the parliament, not just under BJP government but also during the UPA. His average of presenting private member bill is double. His attendance is among the highest and double than many prominent faces. His contribution in the all sorts of discussion is among the top. And this entire focus in parliament is development and not the religion as we might have thought.

He is heading 100s of institutes (Education, Hospitals, Charity etc) and there is absolutely no discrimination based on religion and infact there are so many minority students in the institutes run by him.

Of-course we can treat his some statements as provocative, but again, media can always shows you half picture.

And before commenting on anyone - When Dr. Singh says - Minorities have first right over natural resources - what else can be as communal as that?

In a way it is a master stroke by BJP to fall media, congress, left-liberals and other parties into its trap. Remember the days of 2002 and forward? The entire gang listed above was after Mr. Modi. They didn't leave anything behind to defame Narendra Modi. And Narendrabhai went on keep doing the great development work of the state. So while the media was painting a different picture, he emerged as a completely different leader and a time came when people of India chose him as a PM.

This time, the media, and the gang, indeed fall in the trap. Their game has started. During all discussions the anchors will keep asking questions about "but what about his that statement?" and the congress and left-liberals - politicians and journalists - will keep doing the hatred towards a monk. Ultimately making Mr. Yogi as a great leader who is being targeted by diminishing community of pseudo-secular.

Some parties, like SP, BJD, JDU are smart enough to not fall in the trap. But the congress definitely is.

UP is a state with 20 crore population. Qualifies to be a separate country by itself. With perennial rivers flowing its entire length, fertile soil and bountiful harvest, people should have been prosperous, but for the vice like grip of the Nehru dynasty and its politics. The dynasty and their sycophants around, have utter dislike for Hinduism and hence for majority of the people of this state. This explains the poverty and poor economic development. If at last the people of the state have, and utilized an opportunity to elect a leader respecting their sentiments and would work for their aspirations, let us be kind to them.

If Captain Amarinder Singh can wear his turban or Mehbooba Mufti her purdah and rule their respective states, and we can accept the same, why a different yardstick for a yogi and his sanyasi saffron.

In a way, let them, the pseudos and the minority news media go after Yogi. They are 50% responsible for making Narendra Modi what and were he is. We too are concerned that someone should shoulder and carry on his good work, ten years from now. God willing Yogi would take Modi's place.

The level of corruption taking place in a large state like UP, and others can be highlighted by one action of Yogi. He canceled the extension of many officers.

There were around 100 high level officers given extensions just because they were close to the previous government. Think about average salary and perks, each of them must be getting 12 Lakhs a year. In addition the cost of support staff, vehicle, housing and what-not could be adding additional 12 Lakhs. Putting a total of 25 Lakhs times 100 itself is a burden of 2500 Lakhs, and that too per year, on the poor state government and its people!

No wonder why UP was leading a list of BIMARU state!

why are we so defensive that Yogi became CM ? Is it b/c he was Hindu and we should be ashamed ?



Here is an interesting article:

When the Mughals started ruling India, the lands long-standing Hindu culture was already thousands of years old. Aurangzeb tried to destroy it in its totality, but ended up destroying his empire instead. The British followed and continued with the suppression of Hinduism, but couldnt finish the job because they had to leave in 1947.

One would have thought that the great Hindu revival would finally begin that year, but it didnt because of a certain gentleman called Jawaharlal Nehru who became our first Prime Minister. Nehru was a closet communist and that ideology believes in suppressing whatever culture a country has.

Mao Zedong taught his people to be ashamed of the glorious Chinese culture, which was thousands of years old. British and American communists are ashamed of Christianity, whiteness and their respective empires.

So in India, we were taught to be ashamed of Hinduism while the Mughal and British cultures were eulogised. If you dont believe me then just go back to your school days and remember the history books which just went on and on about the Mughal dynasty, the communist revolutions and the many great benefits of British rule.

he Cholas ruled the entire eastern coast of India along with Sri Lanka, the islands of Maldives and invaded areas of Malaysia and Indonesia. We are taught of the virtues of Mughal centralisation, but they did it hundreds of years before. Yet most history books in India reduced the Cholas to a mere paragraph in some cases.

All our founding fathers, especially Mahatma Gandhi, promised to implement a permanent and total cow slaughter ban across India and abolish English as the official language by 1965. Yet, nothing of the sort happened. If anything, we became more British than the British.

Hinduism was something that had to be kept at home and not to be displayed in public else you were branded a communal bigot. The RSS were a bunch of untouchables. The BJP due to its Hindu heritage couldnt rule on its own and had to be kept in check by allies.That was the case till 2004 and Atal Bihari Vajpayee couldnt change much and was happy to be part of the system. He was even dismissed as a Congressi by many hardline RSS supporters.

Sonia Gandhi through her 10-year UPA "rule" took it to greater heights after that. She was a Roman Catholic who hired a Sikh prime minister, a Christian defence minister and a Muslim foreign minister. While theres nothing wrong with that, her hatred against Hinduism showed in more ways than one.

Right To Education is virtually a Reservation in Hindu Private Schools Act. She tried to introduce the Communal Bill which demonised Hindus. There was a further revision in history books and school textbooks which took Nehruvian ideals further.

#AdarshLiberals and the Left lobby were encouraged to criticise and even abuse Hinduism in louder and louder voices. Even in Bollywood there was a crackdown on scenes that merely criticised Christianity and Islam while Hindu abuse was cleared without a murmur.

However, all that changed overnight in 2014.

Narendra Modi is the first prime minister who proudly wears his Hindu nationalism on his sleeve. In the India of old, he probably would have taken his party to 44 seats in the General Elections, but that fate befell on the secular Congress while the BJP got 282 seats, unthinkable even in the 2000s.

Modi doing a Ganga aarti at Dashashwamedh Ghat in Varanasi celebrating his victory was symbolic in more ways than one. They say Jaisa raja, waisi praja (the people will be like the king). Well, more and more Indians are now wearing their Hindu nationalism on their sleeve and are no longer ashamed of their religion.

The RSS, hitherto a pariah confined to the Hindi heartland, is gaining more and more acceptance and is even spreading to areas in the south such as Kerala and Tamil Nadu along with the east and north-east. Now, more and more RSS members are holding key posts of the government.

It all culminated with the elevation of Yogi Adityanath as Uttar Pradesh chief minister. If Modis rise was considered next to impossible, then a saffron robe-wearing Mahant heading Indias most populous state was plain impossible. But it happened!

More and more Hindus are taking pride in celebrating festivals. They totally frown upon the save water messages during Holi and the smokeless-noiseless Diwali calls. Just look at Twitter. Hinduism is celebrated and there was even a surfeit of the self-created Sanghi-verified saffron tick fan handles.

As I mentioned, the Left lobby suppresses the religions of their lands and their decline is not just in the India, but worldwide. The leftist Labour has been decimated in the UK. Donald Trump won in America. Marine Le Penn is a frontrunner in France. Its a global trend.

Very soon the West will celebrate Christianity and India will celebrate Hinduism in a big way. Another reason is that Hinduism probably has the largest group of atheists (which the religion embraces) who kept quiet when Hinduism was being suppressed, but who now say enough is enough and have become much more vocal.
