NEW DELHI: On Saturday, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath said that nationalism should be the biggest religion for the citizens of the country. A collective voice must be raised against the people who work against the nation’s interests and are indulged in activities like terrorism and corruption, the minister said.

“Nationalism should be the biggest religion for everybody. Hence, we should raise our collective voice against forces of Naxalism, terrorism, corruption and the people who work against the interests of the country,” he added.

While addressing the event organized in the national capital by a socio-religious organisation Arya Samaj, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister revealed that India is primarily an agricultural country in which “cow-based activities are worthy of being highlighted”.

Talking about the educational curriculum in the state, Mr Adityanath said that the NDA government has made some meaningful changes in the curriculum. The government has now added the subjects which will provide the required information about the life of great personalities and revolutionaries of the past to the students, the BJP leader said.

“We have also discontinued the practice of giving public holidays in the name of these great people. Instead, educational workshops are to be held, so that young children can be informed about them,” he said.

Besides this, there will be a noticeable change in the system of the school and Gurukuls would be re-established in the premises. The day of the school will now start with Vedic havans and chanting of hymns, the chief minister said

On this, Assam Governor Jagdish Mukhi said that evils can be removed from the society only through the means of education. And Swami Dayanand Saraswati, the founder of Arya Samaj, was well aware of it, he added.

Haryana Chief Minister Manoharlal Khattar while addressing the event organized by Arya Samaj in Delhi enlightened the efforts made by Saraswati towards the education of women.
