Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has called secularism a major threat to India’s tradition and culture from getting recognitions on global level. He also warned the people to face an outcome, who are behind the creation of false propagandas against India for a sum of money.
Attending the launch of first edition of Global Encyclopedia of the Ramayana, he said, “People who are misguiding the public for their own benefit and betraying the country will not be spared. People who are creating false propaganda about India for money will face the heat.”
Pointing out the people for their consistent questions on the existence of lord Ram in Ayodya, he asserted that the historical facts can never be denied.
Adityanath also urged people to not get involved in any communal disputes by sacrificing their fraternity, which defines India.
Hitting out at those doubting Hindu culture, Adityanath portrayed the tale of a Buddhist guide in the Angkor Wat temple whom he met during his visit to Cambodia. He said that the temple guide was sure enough sure to concede that Buddhism was originated from Hinduism.
“The stories of Ramayana and Mahabharata not only give us the best life lessons, but also tell us a lot about the expansion of Indian boundaries. These stories of our epic Hindu literatures help us envision a better India. Pakistan was a part of India before 1947 and Maryada Purushottam Lord Sri Ram had extended the boundaries of India during his time by making his brother’s son, the ruler of Pakistan,” said the CM.
Talking about the encyclopedia, he said that the e-book will inspire people to visit Ayodhya. The e-book is prepared by the Ayodhya Research Institute.
“There are Sapta Puri, seven holy cities, which are considered as the holiest Hindu pilgrimage sites. Out of these, Ayodhya, Mathura and Kashi are in Uttar Pradesh. It is a matter of pride for us that a workshop has been organised by the Department of Culture, in collaboration with the Ministry of External Affairs,” said Aditynath.
