Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister, Yogi Adityanand said that Moghal Emperor Akbar was not a great man. It was Mewar ruler Rana Pratap who was great, he said. Akbar requested Rana Pratap to call him Badsha. But Rana did not. He sent his generals to Akbar, but he did not visit. He said that he would not respect a Turk. The Yogi made these statements at a meeting with Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) workers and said that Rana is great because he stood up to the self-respect (sovereignty) of India. Is this being viewed as communal by Times Now? Perhaps.
