Speaking to journalist Shekhar Gupta on Off The Cuff programme, Nariman asked the journalists why they had not this question to Modi adding that Adityanath’s appointment was sign that India’s constitution was under threat.

He said, “The constitution is under threat. With the massive electoral victory in Uttar Pradesh. With a priest installed at the behest of the prime minister as the chief minister, like a cherry on the victory cake. That’s the signal. And if you can’t see then you must be spokesperson of that political party or you must have your eyes examined.”

“The message is very clear. What you want to do is for all of us to decide..I don’t quite accept the policies of the prime minister. And I say it quite and I say it quite openly,” he added.

Nariman said that the constitution still had the strength but the people who supported the constitution did not.

Taking a swipe at media, he said, “Why’s no correspondent from any leading channel asked the prime minister, ‘prime minister is it true as this fellow Nariman seems to suggest that this is the beginning of the Hindu State.’ Ask him…At least you know what to be prepared for.”

Adityanath was chosen as Uttar Pradesh’s chief by PM Modi after the BJP won a historic landslide by winning 325 out of 403 seats in the state.

Adityanath has been known for being a proponent of militant Hindutva and anti-Muslim rhetoric.




  1. When a hardcore muslim can become Vice-president of India, then who bars a priest from becoming a Chief Minister?

  2. Why not Hindu State, What is wrong, Why Wrong, Where it is Wrong, How Wrong, then bring Uniform Civil Code, Remove Cast Quota System, Facilities Shall be given only to the Economically Poor People, irrespective of Cast n Religion, End to the Vote Bank Politics, Let us have agreement on Development, Why No action taken on Corrupted People, Why Why n Why…..Oppose Hindu State…easiest to do, Hindu against Hindu…wah.
    God save us
    Jai Shree Ram

  3. Why he is crying. If a Hindu state is created in India nothing is wrong. Pakistan Australia USA OR UK WILL not going to create it

  4. The time has come to thinnk all of indian about the mentallity of people like nariman. This type of people shold be fully ignored by all the indians who talks about the indian democracy but still have no faith in it. This man should be buoycoted at each demacratic front

  5. I suppose,the ancestors of Mr.Nariman who took asylum in India to escape the great mayhem in Parsia were welcomed with open hearts and spreaded arms by the Hindus to flourish in our Land only to be sermonised in the 21st century. One who is ignorant of Hindu philosophy and theology should keep mum on the subject.
