Hindu priest calls for 'War on Islam'

About 20 kilometers east from Delhi’s border, the chief priest of Devi Mandir, Yati Narsinghanand Saraswati, also the leader of a Hindutva organisation called Hindu Swabhiman and president of the Akhil Bharatiya Sant Parishad has been calling for a “final war against Muslims” and believes that “Islam must be removed to save humanity”. Some of the statements he made in the run up to the communal violence in Delhi are “If we don’t remove an evil like Islam from society, how will we survive?”, “Humanity can be saved only if we finish off Islam”, “When your religion needs, you should fight a war. And to pick up arms for religion is not a paap (sin) but punya (virtue)", “All Hindus must stand with Kapil and Gopal who showed the courage to fight Shaheen Bagh. Support these warriors and fight Islam”, “Only Kapil Mishra stood for Hindus against Jihadis in Delhi. Gautam Gambhir is a eunuch. All Hindus must stand with Kapil Mishra”. These can be accessed on his YouTube channel ‘Narsingh Vani’.
