Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Yogi Adityanath said that Mughal rulers such as Babar and Akbar were intruders and all the problems that the country has been infested with will begin to end once the people of India begin to accept it and the fact that they had no relation to India. Adityanath also said that Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, Maharana Pratap and Guru Govind Singh were the real heroes and should be honoured and not the Mughal rulers, reported the Indian Express.
Yogi Adityanath also said that the state and the community which has no time to conserve its history, can never protect its geography. Addressing the crowd, he said that people should start studying their “real” history and take inspiration from it. If they do so, they will not have to fear terror elements such as ISI, and ISIS.
Yogi Adityanath was speaking at a programme on the birth anniversary of Maharana Pratap. At the event, documentaries on the lives of Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi, Governor Ram Naik, Yogi Adityanath and Union Minister of State for External Affairs General (Retd) VK Singh were unveiled. VK Singh and Ram Naik also spoke at the event. Speaking at the event, Ram Naik praised the work done by chief minister Yogi Adityanath so far, saying his work is being acclaimed across the country.
