Akhilesh Yadav Must Apologise over his ‘chillumjeevi’ remark: Akhil Bharatiya Sant Samiti

Akhil Bharatiya Sant Samiti, an umbrella body of Hindu seers, has raised a strong objection to Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav’s “chillumjeevi” remark and has demanded an apology from him.

On Wednesday, in an apparent attack on the BJP’s ‘saffron’ politics in a Ghazipur rally, from where he started a joint rath yatra to Lucknow with his allies, Akhilesh Yadav called holy saffron-clad saints “chillumjeevi’ and people of “one particular colour.”

Chillum is a small pipe used to smoke substances such as tobacco or marijuana.

National General Secretary of Akhil Bharatiya Sant Samiti, Swami Jitendranand Saraswati said, “Angry with this unrestrained statement of Akhilesh Yadav, all the saints from all over the country in a concerted voice have warned all the leaders, who are continuously making derogatory remarks on Sanatan Dharma, Bhagwa and saints, not to drag the saints in their petty politics. Otherwise, the Sanatanis will have to face the consequences in the form of public anger.”

He further added that Sant Samaj will go door-to-door in Uttar Pradesh and run a public awareness campaign against such “pseudo-socialists” and Congress leaders who are continuously making unrestrained statements about Sanatan Hindus and their traditions.

Standing atop a specially-designed bus, Akhilesh Yadav was seen being accompanied by two of his allies in Purvanchal Suheldev Bharatiya Samaj Party chief Om Prakash Rajbhar and Janvadi Party (Socialist) president Sanjay Chauhan.

“In accordance with the Sanatan (age-old) tradition, CM Yogi Adityanath is the Peethadheeshwar (head) of a well-respected and revered matha (seat of ascetic order). In India, since ancient times, religion has always been above the rule of law. Just because a saint has been given the post of the chief minister, no one gets the right to make him a victim of dirty politics. To target him, no objectionable and low-level comments should be made about Sant Samaj.” he said.

Swami Jitendranand Saraswati said that leaders like Akhilesh Yadav and Rahul Gandhi are making such petty remarks against Sanatan Dharma only because of minority appeasement.

Swami Jitendranand Saraswati has asked Akhilesh Yadav and his spokespersons to immediately apologise to the entire saint and Sanatan Samaj for “insulting” the saints. He said that if Akhilesh Yadav does not apologise, then the Sant Samaj will actively go from house to house across the country and appeal for public support against him.
