CM Yogi Adityanath: Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was in Noida on Sunday. In the Save Culture Save India program here, he said that we cannot tolerate the attack on culture under any circumstances. We have already suffered the slavery of the Mughals and the British. But when our culture was attacked, we responded in the form of the 1857 revolution. The Mughals also continued to rule until they entered the temples, but when they attacked the temples, today their descendants are driving rickshaws. During this program, CM Yogi Aditya Nath also mentioned the online conversion case that came to light in Ghaziabad.

Said that such conversions have been happening in the past as well, but now it will not happen. In this program, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that there is a need to connect the downtrodden people with the mainstream of the society. They have to be explained and they have to be reminded of their ancient culture. CM Yogi congratulated the culture warriors honored on this occasion. Said that he has worked with former Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan for a long time. 48 years ago, an attempt was made to strangle democracy by imposing emergency. If they had been successful at that time, would we have been able to do such programs today? He said that there will be some rules for freedom of expression as well.

CM Yogi said that all the countries in the world have their own unique identity. France is famous for art, then Britain has a different identity. Similarly, India also has its own distinct identity. We have accepted the slavery of Mughal and British, but as soon as our culture was attacked, we also responded in the form of 1957 revolution. There was opposition to cartridges made of cow fat. Going forward, Veer Savarkar also recognized it. Giving a message in clear words, he said that we cannot tolerate tampering with our culture and faith under any circumstances. Said that the attack on culture is to promote that distortion like rotting of seed.

He said that there have been attacks on culture. The war of Sur Asuras took place on this religion. This has been happening in every period, today these attacks are happening in different ways. He said that recently we have caught a case of religious conversion through the gaming app. Even before this, conversion was being done by involving the deaf and dumb in mobiles. This is happening not only in UP, but in many areas of the country. This situation is created due to lack of awareness among the people. It was only after seeing these incidents that we implemented the Act in Uttar Pradesh. The Chief Minister said that the families who have come under the influence of these people will have to be explained. For this we all have to work together.

On this occasion, referring to the statement given by the Prime Minister on the occasion of Independence Day, the Chief Minister said that the country will celebrate the centenary of its independence in 2047. In such a situation, what kind of India do you want to see on completion of 100 years? We have to respect our heritage. We have to understand our traditions and follow them. Talking to the youth, he said that we should use technology but should not become its slaves. Efforts have to be made that everyone gets a chance to move forward, but we should also have knowledge of our civic duties. It has to start from your home. And our country will be able to become a developed India by 2047.
