Mohammad Akhlaq’s Murder Accused Get Front Row Seats In Yogi’s Campaign Rally

The Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath gave front row seats to lynchers of Mohammed Akhlaq at a campaign rally for Mahesh Sharma in Bishahra village of Dadri area on Sunday.

The BJP rally was addressed by Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and BJP candidate Mahesh Sharma who is contesting from Gautam Budh Nagar in Uttar Pradesh.

On 28th of September 2015, a 50 year old Mohammad Akhlaq was lynched in Bishahra village near Dadri for allegedly eating beef during Eid and storing it for later consumption.

Vishal Singh, one of the prime accused in the case, who was seen sitting in the front with other accused in the case, said they had been ‘falsely implicated’ in the case and said “nothing will happen now,” since they are out on bail.

In the chargesheet filed by the police, Vishal Singh was accused of making an announcement from a local temple that Akhlaq had consumed beef and was storing it in his house. All 17 accused in relation to the case are out on bail.

Addressing a rally Adityanath said, “we immediately ordered shutdown of all unauthorised slaughter houses in the state.”

The Yogi appealed to Bishahra voters to vote for Mr. Sharma because being a Union Minister of State for Tourism and Culture, he had developed temples all over the country and helped to establish Hindu culture.

He said the Congress ruled the country for the maximum years post-independence. The Samajwadi and Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) ruled U.P. several times but they focused on ‘development’ of their family members. But after Narendra Modi took over on May 26, 2014 as PM, the “political dynamics changed forever.”

(The Pigeon Express Opinion – The man, first thing after becoming chief minister took away police cases against him and his associates. The man who talks about political dynasty, and families, is a product of dynasty. His father was a member of parliament from a BJP ticket. 

And the man who calls himself a saint, has a history of instigating hate communal tensions, his history justifies his action for handing over front row tickets to people, accused for murder and polarising communities.)
