He termed Lord Shiva a symbol of “peaceful co-existence” and temples of the deity in all corners of the nation completed the picture of an integral India
New Delhi: Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Friday said the politics in India is facing a “crisis of credibility” due to the difference in words and deeds of the politicians, and this needs to be checked.
Noticing that the word ‘politics’ has lost its meaning, Singh called upon the people to accept the challenge of ending the credibility crisis in politics.
While addressing the Shivratri Mahotsav function of Brahmkumaris at Red Fort lawns, he said “Politics is a system that takes society on the path of righteousness. But, currently, it has lost its meaning and essence and people hate it,”.
Singh claimed, This “credibility crisis” in politics has originated from the difference in words and deeds of the politicians.”Why cannot we take it as a challenge to end this crisis in politics,”.
He added that the message of ‘Vasudhaiv Kutumbkam’ emanated from India, and said it was an “incredible” feature of our culture that considered all, including those living beyond the boundaries of the nation, as one family.
Singh said “This message spread from Bharat to the entire world. Only large-hearted people can conceive this and narrow-minded people can not even think of it,”.
He termed Lord Shiva a symbol of “peaceful co-existence” and temples of the deity in all corners of the nation completed the picture of an integral India. He is associated with Lord Shiva with the concept of unity in diversity that was a feature of India.
The Defence Minister also appealed to the people to learn at least one language other than their mother tongue to promote social homogeneity, pointing to linguistic disputes in various states.
Singh requested Brahmkumaris to help people rise above the narrowness of caste and religion He added that if it happened, no power in the world will be able to stop India from reaching the top of the global order.
