Remembering Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati’s contribution to Indian society on his birth anniversary, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said he was a beacon of knowledge and spirituality.

Addressing the gathering at Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium, PM Modi said, “We bow to Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati on his 200th jayanti. He was a beacon of knowledge and spirituality. Today in the 21st century, when the world is engulfed in many controversies, engulfed in violence and instability, then the path shown by Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati instills hope in crores of people.”

He performed puja and yagna on the occasion. Union Ministers G Kishan Reddy, Arjun Ram Meghwal and Meenakashi Lekhi were also present at the occasion.

Prime Minister said the country is calling for “pride in our heritage.” He said Maharishi Dayanand revived the understanding of Vedas in the society. Dayanand Saraswati launched a strong campaign against social evils like social discrimination and untouchability.

PM Modi said, “Maharishi Dayanand also emerged as a logical and effective voice against the stereotypes that had flourished in society regarding women. He fought against discrimination against women and launched a campaign for women’s education. Efforts were made to make our history and traditions corrupt. At that very time, the efforts of Maharishi Dayanand appeared as sanjeevani in the society and rejuvenated it.”

Arya Samaj has played a key role in the cultural and social awakening of the country through its emphasis on social reforms and education.

The government has been committed to celebrating the social reformers and important personalities, especially those whose contributions were not given their due yet on a pan-India scale.
