Religious harmony soul of country: Delhi CM

New Delhi: Religious harmony is the “soul” of the country without which it will not survive, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal Saturday said at a Christmas function organised in the Delhi Legislative Assembly.

The chief minister also praised Speaker Ram Niwas Goel for hosting the festival first-time at the Assembly premises.

“Festivals like Christmas are celebrated by all. This religious harmony is the soul of our country without which it will not survive,” Kejriwal said.

Terming India as a bouquet of members of all castes, religions and tribes, he said “some people were working against this diversity”.

“Some people want to spoil this bouquet which is not right,” he said.

Kejriwal said that Christmas will be celebrated every year at the Assembly.

Supreme Court judge Justice Kurian Joseph congratulated the Delhi government and Assembly for the event.

The chief minister said that the “beauty of Indian secularism was that it welcomed all religions”.

Attending the event, Christian priests also lauded the Delhi Assembly for hosting the Christmas celebration. PTI

  1. The CM of New Delhi has worked with Mother Teresa, he has the spirit of compassion and
    God’s love in his heart. Hearty congratulation for the Government of New Delhi for conducting such a great Christmas celebration while the Central Government so nearby is trying to take off the Christmas holiday form the Indian calendar.

    The Central Government in 2013 celebrated the Christmas holiday, 1500 dignitaries were present. The speeches of Sashi Tharoor and then Vice President were classical speeches. The Vice President’s knowledge of the Bible was quite deeply touching.

    But very sad and deeply hurting to mention, how the Modi Government tried in 2014 to wipe off Christmas from India.
