Lashing out at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government in the state for detaining Mahant Paramhans Das, who was on hunger strike demanding a Ram Temple in Ayodhya, Togadia asked if it was a "sin" to ask for a temple at the birthplace of Lord Ram.
The (UP) government has done a barbaric act (by detaining Das)... It is behaving like Mughal emperor Babar," he added.
The firebrand leader has threatened to lead a march from Lucknow to Ayodhya from October 21 if the Centre failed to bring an ordinance to build a grand temple at the birthplace of Lord Ram in Ayodhya.
"We have started mobilising Hindu masses against the Ram-virodhi sarkars (anti-Ram governments) of Modi and Yogi. BJP will get a lesson in coming elections as the Hindus will show black flags to BJP leaders in all five poll bound states, said Togadia.
"The BJP government of UP is treating Ram bhakts like criminals. While arresting Mahant Paramhans Das, the police and magistrates abused him along with other sadhus (seers) and assaulted them with batons," Togadia alleged.
"They forcefully locked the sadhus in a room and dragged away Mahant Param Das like a criminal," he said.
Togadia warned the Adityanath regime to keep in mind that Hindus had voted for the BJP as the party had promised to built a Ram temple in Ayodhya.
