Hindutva unmasked: Yogi Adityanath, BJP's most strident face, will be its chief minister in UP. This is how the Dawn newspaper in Pakistan reported the appointment of Yogi as the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh. The Dawn, however, used a report that appeared in the Scroll and retained the headline too.
The report speaks about the rise of Adityanath and also states that he is known for his strident anti-Muslim rhetoric.
The BBC headline read, " Yogi Adityanath: Uttar Pradesh chief minister choice criticised. The entire report focused more on the criticism and also quoted Congress leader Manish Tewari.
The Al-Jazeera headline read, " Modi picks firebrand to head India's Uttar Pradesh. The New York Times headline read, " Firebrand Hindu Cleric, Yogi Adityanath picked as Uttar Pradesh Minister. The NYT report also read, "The choice of Yogi Adityanath -- who has been repeatedly accused of stirring anti-Muslim sentiments -- to lead Uttar Pradesh, came as a shock to many political observers here, who have become accustomed to the carefully moderated public positions of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in line with his projected image as a pro-development leader and global statesman."
