“Zero tolerance for religious conversions in UP”, says Yogi Adityanath

We shouldn’t borrow a divisive tactic that leaves societyfragmented.However, no power in the world can stop our progress, ” Adityanath said at the idyllic Godri vill that’s located on the external bounds of the Ajanta Hills of the Western Ghats, If we overcome bias grounded on estate and region.

Pertaining to the Banjara community, the UP CM said, “The Banjara Samaj played a vital part in the fight for the country’s freedom, but the community was portrayed in a bad light by the British and the Mughals. It’s now time to embrace them (Banjara community).”

Maharashtra CM Eknath Shinde and Deputy CM Fadnavis were set to attend the event but couldn’t attend the event after their copter developed a specialized problem. latterly in the day, addressing the conclave online, Fadnavis said, “The religious conversion drive accepted by some parts is a new challenge defying the Banjara community. The Mahakumbh is to produce mindfulness against similar conversion which threatens their rich culture and language. The Banjara’s donation to fighting the Mughals and Britishers is well proved. Their donation is immense. Known for their courage the community’s association with Sikh religious leaders is well proved. When Sikh Guru Tegh Bahadur was killed in Delhi, it was Bhai Lakshishah Banjara who fought the adversaries to recoup the body and carry out burial solemnities.”
