Even in scheduled caste, most people have attached Ram with their names. The name connects us with our glorious tradition,” Yogi Adityanath said.
New Delhi| Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath finally broke his silence on the renaming of ‘Allahabad’ to ‘Prayagraj’.Justifying the decision of his government, Adityanath said that the names of places have a connection with the glorious traditions of India and thus hold a great significance.
Talking at the ‘Gyan Kumbh’ event, Adityanath said that some people questioned the move of the renaming of Allahabad saying that names don’t hold great significance. “So, I said why didn’t their parents named them as ‘Raavan’ and ‘Duryodhan’ in that case?” asked Yogi Adityanath. Stressing on the importance of names, he added, “In this country, the name holds a lot of significance.”
Adityanath noted that in India, most of the names are related to Lord Ram. “Even in scheduled caste, most people have attached Ram with their names. The name connects us with our glorious tradition,” he said.
Slamming those who question the existence of Lord Ram, he said that it is an example of the bad state of education. he further said, ” There could not be the worst example of a flawed education system when people start demanding the proof of the symbol of our own religion.”
Criticising the JNU, which often remains in controversy, he said that the higher education institute for allegedly sheltering anti-national people. “Can anyone imagine that in a university being run by Indian taxpayers’ money, the slogans of dividing India would be raised? When the whole country celebrates Durga Puja with devotion, then attempts are being made to mark Hirankashyap’s anniversary in that university. When During Vijay Dashmi, the country celebrates the euphoric win of Lord Ram, the people in that university attempt to glorify Raavana. Have we ever thought about how did this situation arise?” he said.
