Uttar Pradesh CM Yogi Adityanath arrived at Samadhi of Raskhan, a famous devotee of Krishna Bhakti, in Mathura on Tuesday. Belonging to the Islamic faith, Raskhan is seen as a symbol of Krishna’s devotion and the country’s mixed culture. His original name was Syed Ibrahim Khan, but he was identified only as Raskhan. Yogi Adityanath arrived at Raskhan’s tomb and recorded an important note in the Visitor’s Book. “Bhakti does not see caste and creed,” he wrote in The Visitor’s Book. After offering flowers at Samadhi, CM Yogi Adityanath directed the officers to organize cultural programs on a weekly basis so that more and more people could come here.
Akbar praised the beautification of Begum’s tomb
During this, CM Yogi Adityanath praised the officers for beautifying the tombs of Raskhan and Taj Bibi. Taj Bibi was also a fan of Krishna. She was the Muslim wife of the Mughal Emperor Akbar, but her faith was very deep in Krishna. Raskhan was immersed in the devotion of Krishna in his youth and then lived in Vrindavan for the rest of his life. At the end of his life, he had adopted Vaishnavism. During his two-day visit to Mathura, CM Yogi Adityanath offered prayers at Banki Bihari temple. Apart from this he also visited Krishna Janmabhumi.
Amidst the violence of Kanpur, the message has reached Raskhan’s tomb
Meanwhile, he ordered the officers to work for the women living in the widows’ house in Mathura. How can they benefit from government schemes? Pay attention to this. It is worth noting that CM Yogi Adityanath had visited Raskhan’s tomb at a time when there was a hype in Kanpur against the pronouncements on the Prophet Muhammad. Apart from this, controversy is raging across the country on this issue and concerns are being expressed about sectarian incidents. In such a situation, CM Yogi Adityanath’s visit is seen as a message.
