Some people are “allergic” to the name of Lord Ram and they should take a lesson from Indonesia, an Islamic nation “proud of the traditions” of the deity, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said on Friday. Adityanath was speaking during the budget discussion at the Legislative Council, where alleged that Ayodhya, believed to be the birthplace of Ram, had been discriminated against. “Our government has started renovation of ghats there. We are going to make a Ram Museum there. We have also decided to connect Ayodhya with Sitamadhi with a four-lane road under Ramayan circuit,” he said.

In present times, Uttar Pradesh does not need socialism (samajwadi), but nationalism (rashtrawad), he asserted. “Equality is sign of rashtrawad.” The chief minister said the BJP government is working towards development without discrimination on the basis of religion or caste.

“Some persons have allergy with the name of Lord Ram despite the fact that after death ‘Ram naam satya’ is chanted. But then also they say why take name of Ayodhya. “You go to the Muslim country, Indonesia, and see that they are proud of the traditions of Ram. Those who have allergy with name of Ram should take a lesson from them,” the chief minister said.

Adityanath said the Samajwadi Party claims to follow the ideology of Ram Manohar Lohia. “His name also has Ram. But instead of feeling proud of the traditions of Ram, they feel ashamed.” During the chief minister’s speech, the entire opposition including SP, Congress and BSP were not present in the House. In their absence, Appropriation and other Bills were unanimously passed in the House.

    Black powder should read correct history. The criticism should be polished and accurate.I have many points to criticise Hindus.The allergy for Lord Ram started by Khangress in 1989.

      Development without decriminations on the basis of religion and cast. This person does not have any Shame. So many killings and lynching of minorities in UP and he is denying it like Modi denies the killing of 3000 Gujrati Muslims. Your Creator will severely punish you both in you next lives.

        From 1000AD how many temples you descreted and how many Hindus you killed. You should not weep now. This minorities lynching is congress blame game . Even ordinary street brawls are being given communal colour.

          Swamy , Hindus do not punish. They remember. Hindus can not be like ISIS, Boko Haram, AlQueda. Hindus do not have brain to be innovative like 9/11, 26/11, killing pedestrians with vehicles, en mass displacements, burning alive , torturing holy Sikh gurus, etc. You got Phak and stayed here and now want everything separate.PoK, Indus Water Treaty,Muslim Personal Law, Art 370 these are the communal gifts to Hindus by Congress.

          oh really! have you travelled to indonesia, malaysia, kzk, UAE, syria, iran iraq? look at your own hindoo religion first - the caste system - the most heinous and odious of practices known in human history...then we have poverty, exploitation, child trafficking, women trafficking, bonded labour, slavery, inequality, corruption, overpopulation...to name a few. it would be better for you to focus on these problems first

            peaceful hindoos? you must be fantasising! how can a religion be peaceful if it continues to enslave its own, rapes, tortures, mutilates, dehumanises a section of society - THE LOW CASTE - for over 5000 years because of some silly notions published in some ancient texts? this is without parallel in human history. any religion that enslaves its own this way cannot be fit for humanity
