Aurangzeb felt that this was a very easy task and Aurangzeb arrested Guru Tegh Bahadur and started giving various kinds of torture, but Guru Tegh Bahadur never had given up.
Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that the people of Banjara community were standing for the honor of Guru Tegh Bahadur at that time and therefore the people of Banjara community should be proud of their ancestors for their efforts made to the country and society.
It is notable that Yogi Adityanath had said in a statement in the past that Mughal emperor Akbar was not great and the 16th century Mewar king Maharana Pratap was great. Yogi praised Maharana Pratap and said that after fighting for many years in the mountains of Aravali, Maharana Pratap had won his state back and also refused to accept Akbar as the king.
