UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, who reached Madhya Pradesh on Wednesday, has declared Sanatan Dharma as the national religion of India amid controversial statements of leaders regarding Sanatan Dharma. Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi said in Indore that this religion has been attacked before, but those in power will not be able to eradicate it.
UP CM said, Adi Shankaracharya had strengthened the cultural unity of the country by establishing four Peethas in four corners of India. But, today questions are raised on India, Indianness and Sanatan Dharma. Those raising questions are the same people who once questioned the existence of Lord Ram and Lord Krishna. Targeting the opponents of BJP, CM Yogi said, the Sanatan who was not shaken by the atrocities of Ravana, the Sanatan who was not wiped out by the arrogance of Kansa and the Sanatan who was not wiped out by the swords of Babar and Aurangzeb, how can these rulers destroy that Sanatan? Will find.
Amid the political controversy of India vs India, the Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh said that the country has been addressed as Bharat since ancient times and its citizens have been called “Hindu”. He claimed that when Muslims from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh go to Mecca to perform Haj, they are addressed as Hindus in Saudi Arabia.
