He said that during the medieval period, foreign invaders had defiled and damaged religious places, but our faith has preserved our tradition and heritage. There are many countries in the world which have made their material development but have forgotten their tradition and heritage. Today they are facing an existential crisis. Our country is considered a country of festivals and festivals. There are different types of traditions in different areas across the country, which connect the common people with the local faith through special events and bind the entire country in the thread of unity. The result of this public faith was that there was movement and struggle for Ram Janmabhoomi for 500 years. Ultimately Vijayashree was achieved and in January, with the help of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the program of construction of a grand temple of Lord Shri Ram at Shri Ram Janmabhoomi in Ayodhya is going to be completed.
