Priyanka Gandhi referred to a statement by CM Yogi's Guru Gorakhnath While writing, "Mana mēṁ rahiṇāṁ, bhēd na kahiṇāṁ, bōlibā amr̥it vāṇī, agilā aganī hō'ībā, hē avadhū tau āpaṇa hō'ībā pāṇīṁ". The meaning of these lines is not to discriminate against anyone, speak politely, if there is, then you yogi should become like water and calm it down".
A few months ago, Kafeel Khan was arrested on charges of making an inflammatory speech against the National Citizenship Act (CAA). Currently, Kafeel Khan is imprisoned in Mathura District Jail.
