Recalling Mulayam Singh Yadav's political controversies on his birthday

Mulayam Singh Yadav

Mulayam Singh Yadav

Mulayam Singh Yadav was one of the most prominent leaders of the time in Uttar Pradesh. Born in Safai district on November 22, in 1939 to a very ordinary family, he left his home to rule in Uttar Pradesh. Although he served three times for Uttar Pradesh's CM and a one time defence minister, he is remembered more for his controversies than accomplishments. His name found the headlines more often, not only for Uttar Pradesh but for the entire political world. 

Controversy of Bhakt Killing 

Ram worshippers had gathered in Ayodhya for karseva on October 30, 1990. The Chief Minister presiding was Mulayam Singh Yadav. Confused by the activities of Vishwa Hindu Parishad, he ordered a fire crackdown. On Mulayam's firm order, the police hurled with lathi charges at the karsevaks and then fired at the Ram bhakts as they approached the ram mandir. Hundreds of karsevaks died, and many more were wounded. Mulayam Singh Yadav later stated at a public forum that such a tragic incident was recorded under his command. Mulayam was badly defeated after the shooting incident in the assembly elections of 1991, and BJP won with an overwhelming majority. 

Controversy around Rape Culture 

Mulayam received fire after his public speech in Moradabad about his comment on rape cases. He dismissed the fact that men should be sentenced to death order for committing the crime of rape. Boys make mistakes and should not be hanged to death for such misconduct, he remarked. Boys make social blunders and laws sentencing their death should be amended.
