‘For us, the nation is first’, Dr. Imam Umer Ahmed Ilyasi on Ram Mandir consecration ceremony

“This is the face of new India. Our biggest religion is humanity. For us, the nation is first,” says Dr. Imam Umer Ahmed Ilyasi, Chief Imam, All India Imam Organization at Ayodhya Ram Temple ‘Pran Pratishtha’ ceremony.

See, this is a picture of changing Bharat.

Today’s Bharat- New Bharat. Today’s Bharat – Best Bharat.

I have brought this message of love, wherever it reaches. Swamiji is standing beside me, that is Bharat.

Our ways of worship may certainly be different, our beliefs may certainly be different, but our biggest Dharma is of humans and humanity. Let us all together maintain humanity.

Secondly, we are all Bharatiyas, we live in Bharat so it’s our duty to strengthen Bharat. Nation is paramount for us.

The second thing is that today’s message is to eliminate hatred. There were a lot of rivalries, a lot of enmities, many people were killed, and a lot of politics happened, but now we all have to come together and unite to strengthen Bharat and Bharatiyata.

Nation is supreme, this message has to be taken forward. Our message is that we all should move together in the direction that Akhand Bharat should become ours.

The way Modi ji is leading Bharat in the whole world today, we should all together strengthen our Nation, that is our message.
