In Yogi’s Gorakhnath math, Muslims handle finances as well as its cows

GORAKHPUR: Contrary to the archetypal perception of Yogi Adityanath+ as a Hindutva rabble-rouser, the atmosphere inside his math is anything but communal.

For the past 35 years, the man who has supervised all construction work inside the Gorakhnath temple is a Muslim, Yasin Ansari, who also keeps an account of the temple’s expenditure.

Speaking to, Ansari said, “I have very cordial relation with Chhote Maharaj+(as Yogi is referred to in the monastery). Whenever he’s here, he calls me and takes all information about work. I move freely in his living quarters, from the kitchen to his bedroom, and also take my meals with him.” A number of shops in the temple precincts are run by Muslims.
