Akbar, Aurangzeb and Babar were “invaders” and the youngsters should follow the path shown by leaders like Maharana Pratap, Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has said. He said the problems of the country will vanish if this truth is accepted.

Adityanath was speaking at an event held in Lucknow on the occasion of the 477th birth anniversary of Maharana Pratap on Wednesday.

“Maharana Pratap, Guru Gobind Singh and Chhatrapati Shivaji are our role models, and we must follow the path shown by them. Youngsters must learn a lesson from the self-respect and strength of character from Maharana Pratap. Akbar, Aurangzeb and Babar were invaders. The sooner we accept the truth, all the problems of our country will vanish,” he said.

Asking the audience to treasure the rich history of the country, the UP CM said, “A community which does not have the capacity to treasure its rich history, can never keep its geography safe.”

Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik and Minister of State for External Affairs General (retd) V K Singh were also present on the occasion.

    During the period of the Mughals, India prospered and nobody dared to attack India, the rupia coin was also introduced during this period and perhaps you are forgetting Akbar’s secular policies, he attacked and defeated the Rajputs but didn’t humiliate them, Akbar did not subordinate religions to political interests. He realized the supreme value of enlisting the goodwill and moral support of the Hindus. Accordingly he entered into the matrimonial relations with the princely families of Raj na, removed the various indignities imposed on the non-Muslims and felt no scruple in appointing suitable Hindus to responsible posts under the Government. his two most trusted officials Raja Mann Singh and Raja Birbal were both Hindu rajputs, don’t try and deny this now, also Akbar was religiously tolerant and very secular, he abolished the Jaziya tax which was upon Hindu pilgrims and he even abolished the system of converting prisoners of war to Islam, now what are you gonna attack me with ?

      Whatever yogiji said it's absolutely true.Babars history everyone knows. Although Akbar was born in India he was one intruder considering his belief in his own religion. He killed brutally thousands of Hindus and distroid great hindu empires by unethical ways.

          Of curse all the Muslims were invaders and very cruel and terrible rulers. Congress rewrote history and s names a prominent road after Aurengzeb, the worst of the Muslim rulers. Thank God we can speak the truth now. Obviously the Congi and Marxist media will try to object but who listens to these jokers anymore.

            India requires toughest leader like Aurangzeb. During his tenure GDP was 32 of world GDP. No country dared to attack India. He was not corrupted. Yet he failed because he was rabidly anti hindu

              Praising Aurengzeb with wrong facts. GDP was 32 not because of Aurengzeb. What was the growth during his reign? I will give you double what you are making and then want to rape your wife and sister and force you to change your religion and beat you up every day. Will you take it? Looks like you will.
