Gossips, Controversies

In 2005, he led a religion conversion drive; during which he converted several people from different religions into Hinduism. In one such purification drive, he reportedly converted 1800 Muslims to Hinduism in Etah, Uttar Pradesh.

In 2007, a Hindu child died in the Hindu-Muslim clash during the festival of Muharram. After the riots ended, Yogi Adityanath visited the site, where the child had died, and he gave a hate speech. After his speech, the police arrested Yogi and a few of his followers; which caused violence all over Gorakhpur. Yogi was released a fortnight later, but, 10 people lost their lives during this period. He stated- If they (Muslims) kill one of our Hindu brothers, we will kill 10 of them. If they can burn our homes and shops, what’s stopping us from  doing the same.

In 2015, International Yoga Day was initiated and he made it compulsory to participate. Several people and the minority groups in India said they’ll take part in the Yoga Day, but, will not perform the Surya Namaskar; as it opposes their religious sentiments. Yogi Adityanath replied to this by saying – The people opposing ‘Surya Namaskar’ should drown themselves in the ocean. Lord Shankar was the biggest Yogi who started Yoga, and those who want to avoid Yoga and Lord Shankar can leave Hindustan.

In 2015, when Shah Rukh Khan gave a statement regarding intolerance in India, Yogi gave a statement in the Parliament, comparing him with Pakistan based terrorist, Hafiz Saeed. He stated – There is no difference between the language of Shah Rukh Khan and Hafeez Saeed. There is a conspiracy going on in India for poisoning the atmosphere of the country and Shah Rukh Khan has also become a part of it.

In 2016, he stirred up a major controversy with his remark against Muslims. He stated- If the Muslim population continues to increase at the same rate, there will be a situation of population imbalance in India.

On 20 June 2016, in a religious meeting in Basti, he said – Mother Teresa was part of the conspiracy to Christianise India. Hindus were targeted in the name of doing service and then converted

On 15 April 2019, The Election Commission of India (ECI) imposed a 72-hour ban on Yogi Adityanath from campaigning. It was imposed for violating the Model Code of Conduct (MCC); as just a few days before the ban, he was warned by the ECI for his remarks about the Indian Army. He had called it as Modi’s Army. This time he gave a statement in retaliation to Mayawati’s statement that- If the Congress, BSP and SP have faith in Ali, then we also have faith in Bajrang Bali.
