Computer Baba, alias Namdeo Das Tyagi, who fell out of the Bhartiya Janata Party in the run to the Madhya Pradesh assembly elections, has asked Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath to give a public apology for calling the Hindu deity Hanuman a Dalit.
Tyagi went on to attack Prime Minister Narendra Modi and called him along with Yogi Adityanath, “anti-religion”. He said that if Adityanath did not give the apology, all sants will out in a protest.
The self-styled godman threatened to launch a nationwide agitation against CM Adityanath, in case he continues to make remarks about the Hindu deities.
Baba said, “Yogi Adityanath should apologise in public for his remark or sants and seers would launch agitations against him across the country. Yogi not only made remarks but also told his ministers to make such remarks. They said Hanuman ji was dalit, a tribal, a Muslim. I am feeling sad.”
Computer Baba had resigned as the MoS accusing the then Shivraj Singh Chouhan government for failing to protect cows and stopping illegal mining activities in the holy river.
The UP CM, Yogi Adityanath had said, “Hanuman was a forest dweller, deprived and a Dalit. Bajrang Bali worked to connect all Indian communities together, from north to south and east to west.”
