The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that, there was nothing wrong with the concept of Hindu Rashtra.
“Mujhe Hindu Rashtra kee avdhaarnaa mujhe kuchh galat nahee lagtaa hai,” In an interview to Doordarshan on Thursday. “If that rashtra (nation) or raastaa (path) helps improve people’s way of life then we should not hesitate in adopting it,” he added. This is his first televised interview as the CM.
“The Supreme Court has called Hinduism as a way of life. What’s the harm in adopting a good way of life,” Yogi pointed out.
In 2005, Yogi reportedly said that “I will not stop till I turn Uttar Pradesh and India into a Hindu Rashtra.”
