Yesterday, CM of Uttar Pradesh, India said that as a 'Yogi' he will not goto mosque foundation laying program.


For those who don't know , Yogi Adityanath besides being Chief Minister of UP, is also head (chief priest) of Gorakhnath Math in Gorakhpur.

My question is whether there is anything in scriptures that prohibits him from visiting a mosque. If so , please share.

  • Good question :-) is a Yogi of Nath panth not allowed or any Yogi is not allowed? – Srimannarayana K V Aug 7 '20 at 11:04
  • @srimannarayana k v - Not sure which one he is alluding to. But any thing that validates or invalidates will be helpful. Ofcourse if someone can specifically answer from nath panth scriptures ( I think there is just one that might cover this area - Goraksha Samhita ) then that would be great – Carmen sandiego Aug 7 '20 at 11:11
  • Is this a political statement or is it a spiritual statement? – Pradip Gangopadhyay Aug 7 '20 at 12:01

    @Pradip Gangopadhyay - When he says "as a yogi I won't go", I believe he is saying it from a religious / spiritual angle . Thus my question – Carmen sandiego Aug 7 '20 at 12:17

    @RamAbloh - I don't see any mention of "general rule to not engage in affairs of mleccha religion" in the link posted by JenilDave. If you are aware of such rules , please post. However please ensure that rules are emphasis on mleccha religion (particularly their place of worship) and not mleccha people . – Carmen sandiego Aug 9 '20 at 2:10
