There is so much anger among Islamic fundamentalists against Yati Narasimhanand Saraswati, the Mahant of the Shiv-Shakti Peeth in Dasna, Ghaziabad, that from MLAs like Amanatullah Khan to Muslim children in the abuses, are making objectionable remarks against him. On Monday (April 12, 2021), people of Hindu and Muslim society came face to face on this issue in Yamunanagar, Panipat, Haryana.
Hindus and Muslims came face to face in Yamunanagar
Opindia talked to some local people about what had actually happened. In fact, there was also a glimpse of the way the provocative protests of Muslims are going on in the whole country. But, Hindu organizations there also planned to support Mahant Yeti Narasimhanand Saraswati. His plan was to sit in peace and a memorandum would be handed over to the administrative authorities.
The organizers of this protest say that during the discussion on this program, they started getting calls from the people of the intelligence department, who were requesting the administration to postpone it. He later cautioned that Corona guidelines should be followed in the demonstration. Hindu activists assured that they would not use the mic. There is a sudden entry of Muslim crowd here.
In fact, the Hindus planned to support Mahant Narasimhanand, the gate of the grain market near the court, exactly where the Muslims also planned to protest – exactly 1 day before. Hindu activists say that this prank was done on purpose. If they arrived a little later, there would not be a place to lay the carpets. Officials said that if the other party comes, they will demonstrate them later, Hindu workers will give the memorandum first.
We spoke to the local Hindu leader Udayveer Shastri to understand the whole matter, who told that at the same time a Muslim crowd gathered and started reaching the tents of Hindus. When the objection was raised, the administration took the Muslim crowd a little farther. Udayveer Shastri said, “We made it clear to the Hindus that on the holy land of Yamunanagar, the shoes of Mahant Narasimhanand will neither be worn with shoes, nor their effigy will be allowed to blow.”
Aditya Rohilla, who was involved in this protest, told that the Muslim crowd had brought the entire sound system, after which Hindu activists went to explain them. He requested that the mic be discontinued, as the mic was not being used here either. After this, the sound stopped. But, after some time, he started the sound again and started shouting slogans of ‘Allahu Akbar’.
Offensive comments were made on Mahant Yeti Narasimhanand Saraswati. When the Hindu activists also became aggressive, the police got off the mike. The officers were scolded and reminded of their double attitude, when the matter was settled. The Muslim mob was removed from there, the Hindus gave their memorandum. He says the administration told him that the mob had been banished. Udayveer Shastri expressed concern that Muslim communities take to the road where Hindus continue to be heroic on social media. They said:
“If anyone tolerates unrighteousness, then he comes under the category of criminal, whether he is from Hindu society. In the Bhagavad Gita, it is called ‘Swadharma Dheenam Shreyah’, that is, perform your duties. But, I ask that where ‘Ahimsa Paramo Dharmaha’ is taught, why is ‘Dharma Violence Tathaiv Ch’ hidden? Just as non-violence is religion, so is violence for religion. If we sit in the house, the same 800-year-old history will repeat itself. Today some saints started playing their roles, so Hindus will wake up soon. “
Udayveer Shastri said that the information received by him and his associates about the incident of Dasna shows that their situation is exactly the same as that of Vibhishan in Lanka. He said that the Hindu is a quiet community, but at the same time the chaupai also mentioned ‘excessive rubbing, which no one is exposed to sandal hoi’, which means that more rubbing ignites the fire than sandalwood.
Talking to Opindia, he said that the same happens to Mahant Yeti Narasimhanand Saraswati, he was harassed and Hindu sisters and daughters were molested in the area. He also referred to the incident when the son of MLA Aslam Chaudhary was beaten up on charges of molestation. He said that due to repeated incidents like this, he was hurt and he tried to know Islam properly.
Udayveer Shastri, influenced by Mahanta Yeti, said that whatever Mahanta Yeti found from the study of Islam, he is speaking the same. If anyone is in trouble with him, then he should tell the error and condemn it, but why is it a matter of ‘separation from the body’? Why talk about halal? He asked that this country runs from the Constitution, it is a court, where are these things being brought from? Udayveer Shastri also blames this on the growing population of Muslims.
What does Udayveer Shastri say to awaken Hindus?
He pointed out how Muslims are encouraged to produce more and more children and children are educated in madrasas, where they become fundamentalists. He referred to Islamic countries considered to be a bastion of terror, where children are given guns. He also agrees with Wasim Rizvi, who moved the Supreme Court to remove certain verses of the Quran. He cites the example of China, where there is a ban on keeping half a beard, wearing short pajamas and naming children as Mohammed.
Udayveer says that he is doing all this for the good of Islam, it is necessary for social reform. In a conversation with Opindia, he also reminded history. Describing India as a country of Hindus, he said that those who adopted Islam did so out of fear of being beheaded, because Islam itself originated with violence.
Udayveer Shastri clearly states that those who were the cowards of tomorrow are the Muslims of today. At the same time, they say that those who are cowards today will also be Muslims of the future. Talking about ‘Veer Bhogya Vasundhara’, he said that this earth asks for sacrifices and from Maharana Pratap and Chhatrapati Shivaji to Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev, from Lala Lajpat Rai and Sardar Patel to Lal Bahadur Shastri – all on this earth Sacrificed for
At the same time, the Muslims who were there said in their defense that they have not made any comment about Swami Narasimhanand and they are being defamed like this. The high officials reached the spot and accepted the memorandum from both sides. Hindu organizations said that they should be prosecuted against inciting hatred in society. There was also a debate between some youth of the Hindu organization and the police about the closure of the mike.
