Hate bandwagon prospers under Narsinghanand’s patronage

The video that has been taken down by Facebook was a live video where followers of Yati Narsinghanand can be seen verbally abusing Delhi CM Arvind Kejriwal, Shaheen Bagh protesters and Muslims in general


Right-wing extremists are quick to take down anyone who dares to criticise any Hindu tradition, whether on social media or on the ground. Since law enforcement authorities have been cutting such hate offenders too much slack, such offences usually go unpunished, and therefore, continue unabated. 

This time, the hate was directed against Delhi Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal, for his declaration of ban on firecrackers. The hate was spread via a Facebook Live video uploaded by some followers of spiritual leader Yati Narsinghanand, who is himself a serial hate offender infamous for his limitless hateful remarks against women and the minority community. While Yati enjoys the security of UP Police, his followers enjoy his patronage. 

Believing themselves invincible, these followers uploaded the aforementioned Facebook Live session, which shows Suresh Rajput and Rahul Sharma verbally abusing Kejriwal. They say to Kejriwal in this public video that he shouldn’t comment on Hindu festivals and that he only speaks up when it comes to Diwali and Holi. They also go on to verbally abuse in the most virulent manner the Shaheen Bagh protesters and say unspeakable things about the women who had bravely sat for days on end in protest against the Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA). They also mock and verbally abuse Safoora Zargar; even though they do not mention her name, the implication is clear. Further, they hail the recent incidents of violence in the state of Tripura and say that the Hindus in Tripura have awakened and have brought in Diwali in the right way. They also threaten that if all the Hindus in the country are awakened, then incidents of Tripura will resonate throughout the country.

Suresh Rajput is also known to have participated in and led a rally against ‘love jihad’ in Delhi, where they raised slogans like “Ka**Mullo ko goli maro (Shoot the Muslims)” and “Jab mulle kaate jayenge, tab Ram Ram chilayenge (When Muslims are killed, we will shout Ram Ram)” in the presence of the Delhi police.

The video has now been taken down from Facebook and is no longer available for viewing. However, there are snippets of the video uploaded on Twitter, criticizing what Rajput and his accomplice are saying in this vile video.
