Pakistani newspapers are reporting extensively about the newbie Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath with damning headlines.
Tribune.com.pk, for example, had a less obvious headline where it shrieked:
Modi picks Hindu hardliner to lead Uttar Pradesh
TheNews.com made it even less obvious content with reporting that “Anti-Muslim hardliner named UP CM.”
These are the same newspapers which wrote same screeching headlines when Narendra Modi became the Prime Minister of India.
Dawn.com’s headline was “Hindu ‘radical’ nominated chief minister of India’s most populous state” perhaps written with an intention to work up Pakistani Muslim passion which would obviously savor these headlines.
But the worst was Geo News which called Yogi Adityanath a ‘notorious Hindu hardliner.’
These are the same newspaper who regularly send their correspondents to cover Hafiz Saeed and other radicals and fail to cover atrocities against Pakistani minorities like Christians and Hindus.
However, many of them failed to note that when the anti-Pakistani artist sentiment was high it was Yogi Adityanath who had said that
“Our fight is not against art and culture, it is against terrorism.”
Check out these tweets on Yogi Adityanath:
Meanwhile, these comments from Pakistanis on Yogi Adityanath show their abject hate for him which makes them stoop to any kind of lies. This statement was never made by Yogi Adityanath. However, corpses of Hindus woman and man were dug out and desecrated in Pakistan which currentriggers.com has reported in the past:
Madness in India. Same sick Hindutvadi who wanted supporters to dig up corpses of Muslim women set to become UP CM. pic.twitter.com/wtaorUxbkg

But not are like that and await development and secularism, even though they themselves made Pakistan an Islamic state which cannot even have a Gayatri mantra recital without Quran recital:
I will support #YogiAdityanath if he remains secular and develops UP, state of my ancestors.

Hope responsible Indian citizens will rise to oppose Yogi Adityanath's nomination as CM like those in Pakistan who stand against SSP/ASWJ

The time will tell how the new UP CM’s tenure will turn out, but for Pakistanis, the writing is already on the wall and they are unlikely to mend it.
