New York Times article maligning Yogi Adityanath sparks anger in Agra
At a time when even the president of the United States Donald Trump is openly praising Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying he wants to follow the steps taken by Modi in bringing his country back on track, the American media is busy defaming Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath and his state.
On Friday, the people of Agra became infuriated by reading a mischievous story about Yogi Adityanath published in the New York Times entitled “The Indian cleric of the puppets ascended the political ladder of India” and claimed that it was an attempt by New York Times of Yogi Adityanath’s failure and his growing stature in Indian politics.
Simulated copies of the New York Times were burned at various places in protest of the news.
Speaking to India Today, members of the Hindustani Biradari group said that Yogi Adityanath is carrying out the ‘Sabka Sath Sabka Vikas’ agenda set by Prime Minister Modi and is working towards the progress of Uttar Pradesh.
Secretary Ziauddin said that the image of Yogi Adityanath has undergone a tremendous transformation since he became Prime Minister of UP and what the New York Times wrote against PM Modi and Yogi Adityanath seems to be following an anti-Modi agenda.
He said that many Westerners of the elite, as well as the Indians, are still unable to digest that an ascetic like Yogi Adityanath could become the country’s most populous state minister and a tea vendor like Narendra Modi could become the prime minister Of the world’s largest democracy.
He said the article portrays Yogi Adityanath as the leader of a militant Hindu sect, which creates a misunderstanding among international readers that Uttar Pradesh has been taken over by militant Hindus and is not safe to come here. He said that even when US President Donald Trump praises PM Modi, the New York Times seems to be doing the opposite by questioning PM Modi’s judgment by naming Yogi Adityanath as the PM’s prime minister.
Social activist Amir Qureshi said that Yogi Adityanath is not a PM candidate, as this article appears to be portraying. While Modi is busy developing the country, Yogi Adityanath is working hard to bring Uttar Pradesh to the main states of the country. The agenda of these two is only development, not to make India a Hindu nation as the New York Times says.
Qureshi added that the New York Times reporter seems to have written the news in the United States when he should have visited Uttar Pradesh and seen for himself how these two are working hard for the country.
He said that the New York Times story is a pack of lies and that the 20 Muslim crore in India are not considered separate from their Hindu, Christian and Sikh brethren, and minor incidents between these communities should not be given as prominence as This is very great country and such disagreements are bound to happen even in small families.
