NEW DELHI / AP

A hard-line Hindu religious leader was sworn in on Sunday as the chief minister of India’s most populous state.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other leaders of India’s ruling party attended a ceremony in the Uttar Pradesh state capital of Lucknow, where Yogi Adityanath took the oath of office.
Adityanath is a five-time member of Parliament who has offended many in the country with his polarizing statements attacking the Muslim community.
