Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath was questioned about the Taj Mahal during an interview. In response, he said something like this.
In view of the assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh, the political stir has also intensified. All political parties are preparing for the upcoming assembly elections. CM Yogi Adityanath is campaigning for BJP. Earlier, apprehensions were being raised in the political corridors about the BJP’s chief ministerial candidate. But Home Minister Amit Shah put an end to all such discussions. Amit Shah made it clear that if the BJP government is formed in UP, only Yogi Adityanath will become the CM.
An old interview of Yogi Adityanath is going viral amidst political turmoil. In the program from ‘ABP News’, Yogi was asked about the Taj Mahal, ‘I have to ask a question about the Taj Mahal, but you started smiling even before hearing the question. Recently you said that they see Taj Mahal as a symbol, but in reality it is not so. What do you have to say on whether the Taj Mahal is a symbol of Indian culture or not?
In response, Yogi Adityanath had said, ‘Where do you want to take the country after independence. Gratitude should be expressed towards India. We are expressing our gratitude against the Rishi tradition of India. Indians should be proud. We should feel proud of the tradition of Ramayana, the tradition of Vedas and Puranas. We are people who believe in Ramayana and Shrimad Bhagwat Geeta. But instead of being proud of it, people are feeling ashamed, so I feel pity for their wisdom.
If you are a fakir, then go to the mountains and do penance: Yogi Adityanath had said in response to this, ‘Those who ask such a question, they do not even know the meaning of sannyasa of India. After attaining enlightenment, Buddha dedicates his 46 years for the welfare of the people. The sage tradition within this country has been devoted to nationalism. We are also continuously doing our work by making politics a platform for the nationality of India. We are using the platform of politics for social welfare. In the Sant Samaj, there is never any sentencing on the basis of caste, creed and religion.
