According to previous reports, Shayan Ali, who applies Hindu tilak on his forehead, calls himself a great devotee of Shri Krishna. He explains, “After being forced to leave Pakistan in 2019 due to harassment by Pakistani agencies, I sank into deep depression and was on the verge of surrender. But then, ‘Krishna’ reached me, and now I must give back to my ancestors and bring them respect.”

Along with this, Shayan Ali said that ‘being a Sanatani, I want to make it clear that I will not be a part of hatred towards any other religion. I respect your beliefs, and I want you to respect mine because my Gita teaches me to respect every person, no matter his religion!’
