A Muslim Fan, Yamen Siddiqui Gets Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath’s Tattoo on Chest
At a time whilst the communal cauldron is boiling over, this report brings a grin to the face. Yameen Siddiqui, a 23-year-old Muslim youth, has got himself a picture of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath tattooed on his chest.
He says that Yogi is his role model and he has given himself a present on Yogi’s birthday, in advance this month, by getting the tattoo. Siddiqui lives in a village at the border of Farrukhabad and Mainpuri districts and owns a shoe business here.
He admits that he has been dealing with lots of flak from his friends and family relatives since he got himself the tattoo however he isn’t upset.
“My wish is to meet Yogi Adityanath and show him the tattoo. I have great love and respect for him. He has changed Uttar Pradesh ever since he came to power. There isn’t any discrimination and Hindus and Muslims are getting benefits of all welfare schemes,” Siddiqui says.
He refuses to speak about controversial problems just like the Gyanvapi mosque and the Mathura Eidgah. “That is for the court to decide.”
About Adityanath Yogi
Yogi Adityanath — ‘curious boy’ who has become a firebrand leader makes records with the second term as UP CM Yogi Adityanath, born Ajay Mohan Bisht, is a politician with a distinction in lots of ways.
From a person who wasn’t even a part of the BJP’s star campaigner listing in 2017, to turn into the first UP CM in 37 years who appears set for a consecutive term in office, the 49-year-old monk-politician has come a long way.
Born in the lower-middle class home to a forest ranger and his spouse in Uttarakhand’s Pauri Garhwal, the “smart boy” Ajay, had as soon joined the Students’ Federation of India (SFI) on the behest of a relative, only to recognize that the party’s sensibilities did not fit him.
He then went on to enrol in the RSS pupil wing, the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), says Shantanu Gupta, who has written a biography at the UP CM titled The Monk Who Became Chief Minister.
Gupta defined Yogi as a “no-gossip and curious boy”, who met the second mahant of the Gorakhpur Mutt, Avaidyanath, for the duration of the Ramjanmabhoomi movement and inspired him a lot that the latter indicated to him in 1993 that Adityanath turned into next in line to head the mutt.
In those days Adityanath was acknowledged as “Chota Mahant” by the ones related to the religious organisation. “While the religious switch of energy happened in 1994,” recalled Gupta, his upward push in politics commenced in 1998 whilst “Yogi Adityanath has become a parliamentarian at the age of 26”.
Meanwhile, Adityanath’s photograph as a firebrand, anti-Muslim Hindu chief was already being established, stated Vijai Trivedi, the writer of another biography of the UP CM, Yada Yada hi Yogi, owing in large part to a few polarising speeches made by him.
