Mahant Yati Narasimhanand Saraswati of Dasna Devi temple in Ghaziabad, who is in constant discussion about his statements, has once again given a controversial statement. Narasimhanand on Monday said he does not agree with Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat’s statement that “the DNA of all Indians is one”. He said that ‘the Bhagwat may have the DNA of Aurangzeb but the DNA of all Indians is not the same.’ Even before this, he has been in the headlines by giving many controversial statements.
Mahant Narasimhanand had come into controversy some time back when he justified the incident of beating a Muslim boy who entered the temple premises to drink water. Narasimhanand had arrived in Aligarh on Monday to attend a program. He said, ‘Bhagwat is not everyone’s contractor. He is free to talk about his own and the DNA of the RSS but he is not free to talk about everyone’s DNA. At the same time, he had given a statement in Govardhan that Krishna Janmabhoomi in Mathura, Kashi Vishwanath temple, Somnath temple and Ram temple in Ayodhya were vandalized by jihadis. He told the Hindus to get organized. Mahant said that if Hindus are not organized, then by 2029 the Prime Minister of the country will become a jihadi.
Mohan Bhagwat’s statement
Addressing a program on July 4, Bhagwat had said that ‘Muslim youths should not be trapped in the fear that Islam is in danger in India’. Talking about Hindu-Muslim unity is misleading. Hindu and Muslim are not separate but one. All Indians, irrespective of religion, have the same DNA. AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi had also targeted Bhagwat for this statement.
