Former Bihar Minister Lalu Prasad Yadav’s eldest son Tej Pratap Yadav, who had recently been seen in a Lord Shiva costume before leaving to offer his prayers at Baidynath Dham in Deoghar, recently put up a cryptic tweet about his beliefs.

On 4 August, he tweeted a photo of him cosplaying Shiva a meditative pose, followed by a message that read, “I am religious but not blinded by it…My religion teaches me compassion, not hatred. All living beings are equal for me because I am manuvaadi. People who play politics with religion won’t be able to understand my principles.”

Tej Pratap has often dressed up like the gods. Ahead of his wedding, a few posters showed him as Lord Shiv and then-fiance, Aishwarya Roy as Parvati. Earlier, he had also dressed up as Lord Krishna.

Tej who has taken the backseat in politics and let his younger brother Tejashwi take the reigns, will mark his entry into Bhojpuri films with Rudra-The Avtar.
