Lucknow: Mahant of Dasna Devi Temple in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh and Mahamandaleshwar Yati Narasimhanand Giri of Juna Akhara have made a shocking announcement. While retiring from public life, he has said to devote his entire life to religious works. He has also announced to distance himself from his fight against Islamic Jihad and from holding the Parliament of Religions. Yeti Narasimhanand said these things on 19 May 2022 (Thursday).
Yeti Narasimhanand has also blamed himself for the action taken against Jitendra Narayan Tyagi (former name Waseem Rizvi). Releasing a video, Yeti Narasimhanand has said, 'We all came to take Jitendra Narayan Tyagi in jail. He has been released. They have left before meeting us. We were with him till here. I am solely responsible for our happy or sad experience with them. It's not their fault. He only told the truth. Because of my weakness, he had to stay in jail for more than 4 months. I apologize to him for this.'
He further said that, 'I want to tell the Hindu society that I spent as much of my life as possible in fighting the Jihad of Islam. But, now I wish to spend the rest of my life in the propagation of Yogeshwar's Gita along with the sacrifice of Mother and Mahadev. I apologize for the mistakes I made so far. After today I am not in public life. Now a new chapter in my life begins as just a religious person.' According to media reports, Yeti Narasimhanand has taken this decision in view of the apathy of the Hindu society. He said, 'From the year 2012, I had started the Parliament of Religions against the Islamic Jihad of Deoband. But it is ending today. The Hindu society did not support us in the struggle for the comrades who were jailed in the Parliament of Religions. The warriors of Hindu society are getting ruined.
