Continuing its wave of saffronisation, Yogi Adityanath's government in UP has now painted the walls of Lucknow's Haj House with saffron. colour The Haj House is a complex used to provide accommodation to Muslims travelling to Mecca to pay pilgrimage.

Randhir Singh, a senior advocate in Barabanki, said that the recent encounter killing of Azamgarh resident Rais was suspicious, and he has written a letter to the President to investigate it. The BJP-led state government blamed the contractor for the incident and said that strict action will be taken against him.

Boundary wall of the Uttar Pradesh Haj Committee's office got back its original cream colour on Friday, within 24 hours of the structure being painted in saffron which evoked criticism. Painting of the wall is reported to have been carried out on Thursday night by the UP estates department and the Haj office employees were not immediately available for a reaction, Friday being a holiday, media reports said. The saffron colour, mostly associated with Hinduism and especially with the Sangh Parivar of which the BJP is a part, was painted on the front portion of the Lal Bahadur Shastri Bhawan Annexe where the offices of the chief minister and top bureaucrats are located.

After the BJP government painted the Haj House in Uttar Pradesh's capital city yesterday, many Opposition parties and Muslims objected to the move.

"What is this? The BJP will paint it saffron, the SP will choose green and the BSP blue".

State chief minister Yogi Adityanath, a monk-turned politician, is always clad in saffron. Is saffron an anti-national colour? "Saffron is a colour which symbolises ujala (brightness) and urja (energy)", he claims.

The Minister of State for Minority Affairs, Mohsin Raza, came out with a statement defending the move.

The change of colour at the Lucknow office hadn't gone down well with the Muslim community leaders.

He said, "This is peculiar politics".
