Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Tuesday said all problems prevailing in the country will begin to end once people accept that Mughal rulers such as Babar and Akbar were “intruders”, and had no relation to India. He further said that the state and community which has no time to conserve its history cannot protect its geography.

The chief minister was speaking at a programme where documentaries on the lives of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Governor Ram Naik, Yogi Adityanath and Union Minister of State for External Affairs General (Retd) V K Singh were unveiled on the birth anniversary of Maharana Pratap. Naik and Singh too addressed the gathering.

Adityanath also said Maharana Pratap, Chhatrapati Shivaji and Guru Govind Singh are the “real” heroes of the country, and should be honoured.

He said when people start studying and taking inspiration from the “real” history, there will be no need to fear ISI, ISIS and other such elements. Governor Ram Naik praised the work done by the CM so far, saying they were being acclaimed across the country.

      Pity Yogi Adityanath's talk is such garbage even for some of us Hindus! You cannot wish away facts of history - they exist in history books in many countries around the world! And the world has come to believe those books more than ours!

          For the very first I feel that our government is not greedy for votes instead wants to do something which today's society needs to understand to the core of it. Not being biased depicts a worthy government.

            Muslims as well as Hindus, Please don't forget "Indian Muslims" (even stani) are not invaders but the people who were converted to Islam. They have faced same torture as others did. Many got killed, tortured and those who converted were spared. The converted people should not follow the invaders as their ancestors... they are not. We must understand we are the same people and not be biased on religious basis. There are enough dividing factors already (male-female, fair-dark, rich-poor, city-villagers, govt-private, blue collar-white collar, my language-your language, my state-your state and so on..... Focus on being progressive and be a proud Indian. Make your country proud.
