Lucknow: The ongoing controversy over the loudspeaker now seems to be abating. Meanwhile, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's statement has come out. He said loudspeakers have either been removed from mosques in UP, or their voices have been reduced. Yogi said all the loudspeakers taken off have been donated to schools or hospitals.
In the past, in many states of the country, voices were raised against the Azaan through loudspeakers from mosques. There was also an uproar in many states. After this, the process of removing loudspeakers was started in UP. CM Yogi said this at a conclave of Panchjanya (organiser), a magazine related to the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh. At the event, CM Yogi said that this time you must have seen that Eid prayers were not offered on the road. The sound of the mosque loudspeaker has either been reduced or taken off. These loudspeakers have now been given to schools and hospitals.
CM Yogi further said that there has been no riot in the BJP-ruled state of UP during his last tenure and during this tenure. He said that there are many states where riots broke out after the elections. But there were no riots in UP after the elections and before. CM Yogi said that after the formation of the government, Ram Navami and Hanuman Jayanti were made peacefully. This is the same Uttar Pradesh where riots used to happen over small things earlier.
