Yogi Adityanath appeals to Hindu saints to work towards elimination of casteism and untouchability

Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, while participating in Bhandara Mahotsav (community kitchen) in Visnagar, Gujarat, called casteism and untouchability as two of the biggest banes of India and strongly appealed to the saints and religious leaders to start a movement for the complete elimination of casteism and untouchability. Calling lack of unity within communities as one of the main reasons Somnath temple was invaded so many times, he said we cannot expect shining future till the time such divisions like untouchability exists in our society.

He further urged the religious and spiritual leaders to take a pledge that untouchability is eliminated from the society. Speaking at the event which was attended by hundreds of Sadhus, Yogi asked the leaders to take leadership in spreading the message of brotherhood and unity among the people of India. He added that untouchability can never be part if it exists, we should be ready for more such attacks like the invasion of Somnath temple. He further added that elements who want to weaken India will try to bring such divisions in society.

Hailing Prime Minister Modi as ‘Iron Man’ for accelerating the pace of development in India, he said Modi is working hard to take the country to newer heights. He said Modi’s “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikaas” slogan is a spinoff of the Sanatan Dharma philosophy, which also calls for taking everybody along. He even hailed Modi for being instrumental in getting UNESCO recognition for Yoga and Kumbh festival.
