In Uttar Pradesh, horns have been removed from over 11,000 religious places in the state following the instructions of Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and it has been decided to control the sound of the loudspeaker at more than 35,000 places. Congratulating the Yogi government on this decision, Maharashtra Navnirman Sena President Raj Thackeray has targeted the ruling Maha Vikas Aghadi government in Maharashtra. Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut, the biggest member of Mahavikas Aghadi, reacted to this criticism. He commented on this remark during an interaction with reporters in Mumbai.
Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut alleged that BJP is only making it an issue. In the matter of removing loudspeakers from mosques, the Maharashtra government called an all-party meeting, but BJP did not come to it. According to Raut, BJP is doing politics only on loudspeaker issues. Shiv Sena leader Raut said that we say that the order of the court regarding loudspeakers should be followed. So, the state home minister called all the parties for the meeting but the BJP opposed it.
Maharashtra protests over loudspeakers on Kashmir:
Here, the statement of PDP chief Mehbooba Mufti has come to the fore on the loudspeaker controversy. Although she has expressed and told her strong remarks on this many times. Now he has said that suddenly there was the issue of the loudspeaker, before that the issue of hijab came, and next there will be the issue of halal. Mehbooba Mufti accused the BJP in a suppressed tongue. Said that all this seems to be a conspiracy to divide the society. They are not doing anything for jobs, unemployment, or electricity, so they are playing the game of Hindu-Muslim. She believes all this is being done to divert attention from the power shortage.
What’s on the loudspeaker so far?
Loudspeakers have been removed from 11,000 religious places in Uttar Pradesh. A limit has been set for 35,000 religious places to blow the horn.

Action on the instructions of CM Yogi:
Last week, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath held a meeting with senior officials on the issue. In this meeting, Yogi Adityanath said that every person has the right to follow his religious beliefs. However, care should be taken not to harm others. He said that “It is okay to use loudspeakers. However, ensure that it’s volume remains confined to the movement of those religious places. Let us tell you that Hindu and Muslim religious leaders are also supporting this action. Home department officials had discussed this with Muslim religious leaders. During the discussion, religious leaders of both Hindu and Muslim communities agreed to reduce the noise of loudspeakers.
