New Delhi: Union Minister for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi on October 3, 2021, said that Unity in Diversity has been prospering India.

Addressing ‘Social Harmony and Women Empowerment and Pt. Deen Dayal Smriti Samman Programme, Naqvi said many obstacles came in the way of inclusive development, but our strength of “Unity in Diversity” has ensured the country moved forward on the path of prosperity.

Naqvi stated that even after having various languages, religions, regions, lifestyle; India is united only because of its culture, traditions and strong Constitutional values.

The Minister said that the country is celebrating its 75th anniversary of Independence, but we must also remember the “Horrors of Partition”.

“We have to remember who was responsible for the ‘Horrors of Partition’, we have to remember who conspired to sacrifice India’s interests for their narrow-minded political self-interests.”

The Minister said that Lord Gautam Buddha’s purposeful message of spiritual humanism and karma-oriented life is still relevant for the entire humanity. His teachings of spiritual self-confidence continue to show us the path of inner peace and self-capability by erasing all the contradictions.

He said Lord Gautam Buddha’s teachings of inclusive society, filled with self-confidence, have proved to be the most meaningful and precise resolution and determination for the entire humanity during the Corona period.

“Lord Buddha’s teachings were mostly related to the solution of social and cultural complications; his hundreds of years old teachings and principles are relevant even today.”

Naqvi said that during the last seven years, the Government has worked for inclusive empowerment with commitment to Constitutional values. It has ensured “Development with Dignity” of all the sections including the Minorities.

The programme was organised by Bhartiya Baudh Sangh.

Naqvi said that organisations such as Bhartiya Baudh Sangh are playing a pivotal role in promoting social and cultural harmony and national unity.

Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs and Culture Arjun Ram Meghwal, Minister of State for Minority Affairs John Barla, Bhartiya Baudh Sangh national president Bhante Sanghpriya Rahul, various religious leaders and other prominent people from education, social, cultural, health and other sectors were present on the occasion.
