Serial hate offender Yati Maharaj spews venom at Muslims at pro-CAA rally

Sabrangindia 06 Feb 2020

Yati Narasimhanand Saraswati Maharaj, the National Convenor of the Akhil Bharatiya Sant Parishad and a serial hate speech offender has once again allegedly made a communally charged hate speech at a pro-Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) rally organized by the Updesh Rana Youth Brigade at Jantar Mantar in Delhi a month ago. Yati Maharaj as he is fondly known in the right-wing circle, has been propagating population control, has taken grabbed an opportunity amid the protests rising against the CAA to spew hatred against the Muslims.

At the rally, he not only used abusive language against the members of the community, words that can’t be put in print, he said that he thanked another serial hate offender Updesh Rana for supporting the government on the CAA. He said, “This is the first time that something is happening for the Hindus. Till today, whatever has been done has been done for the Muslims. These Muslims who are coming out in large numbers don’t know what their condition would be if we Hindus come out in large numbers.” He added, “I would like to tell Modiji that we are with him. He should bring the CAA and then the NRC and then work towards controlling the population of the Muslims,” using a slur against the community. He said that the Muslims were contaminating the population of the country and that he and all the youth would support PM Modi in his initiative towards population control. Calling Hindus ‘tigers’, he used derogatory words to threaten them saying “their eyes would be gouged out if they try to claim the nation to be ours. India only belongs to the Hindus.”

The maniacal crowd who supported Yati Maharaj in his tirade also shouted the infamous slogan “Desh ke gaddaron ko, goli maaro s***on ko” – a slogan that has become the communal battle cry of the right wing to quell the anti-CAA protests.
 

He had called for population control back in 2018 too when he used to take letters written in blood to the offices of the Prime Minister. Back then he even backed the current editor-in-chief of Sudarshan News, RSS sympathizer and communal disharmony promoter Suresh Chavhanke who had gone on a Bharat Bachao Rally to talk about population control with the message – “Hum Do Hamare Do Toh Sabke Do” and released an ad warning Hindus that India would become another Pakistan if the population of Muslims wouldn’t be controlled.

This serious dehumanization that Yati Maharaj has indulged in – comparing humans of a community to specific animals, is just an expression of their supremacy where they show that they consider Muslims as subhuman.

Citizens for Justice and Peace (CJP) had earlier filed a complaint in 2015 against Yati Maharaj and others against statements that were violative of the law where he had referred to Islam as the religion spreading hate in the country and the world at large; apart from calling madarsas as ‘terror-spreading centers’.

This serious dehumanization of Mulims by Yati Maharaj – comparing humans of a community to specific animals, is just an expression of their supremacy where they show that they consider Muslims as subhuman and undeserving members of the nation. This is also one of the stages of genocide as per Dr. Gregory Stanton, founder of Genocide Watch.
