yoga-yogiChief Minister Yogi Adityanath on Wednesday said “no Indian should be hesitant” about being proud of his or her Hindu identity. Addressing an event on ‘Hindvi Swaraj Diwas’, organised at Lucknow University on the anniversary of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s coronation, Adityanath asked if like Hinduism, any other religion can claim its voice for ahimsa (non - violence), Abhay (fearless) and Satya (truth)  the three pillars of ‘Hindu satan Sanskriti’.

Referring to Swami Vivekanand’s speech in Chicago, he said: “At Chicago, when asked about Hinduism, Swami Vivekanand had said that he was proud to be a Hindu. I believe that no Indian should be hesitant about this.”

He added that the aim of Hinduism is ‘Satyam Shivam Sundaram’. “Hindu is the merit ras dharna going towards the ocean of truth… Ahimsa, Abhay and say are the three pillars of Hindu Sanatan Sanskriti, and that is why we feel proud in being a Hindu,” he said.

Claiming that “distorted portrayal of history has tried to bound our great personalities”, Adityanath said: “But true history is where we remember those heroes centuries after they are gone and today, this function tells that Shivaji was great and Aurangzeb was not.”

Governor Ram Naik, who was also present at the event, said that last year, during the same function, he inaugurated a grand statue of Shivaji in the university. He asked the university to hold for this program at a bigger level.

“Shivaji’s name is on top of world’s best strategists. He was a truly secular leader with a lot of Muslims (holding) important designations during his regime,” he added.

Deputy Chief Minister Dinesh Sharma, Uttarakhand leader Bhagat Singh Koshyari and University Vice - Chancellor S P Singh were among the others present at the event.

trumpDuring his previous service at the Department of Justice, Christopher was the leader of major fraud investigations, and was a key part of the team overseeing the Justice Department’s actions in the war on terrorism following the 9/11 attacks,” Trump said in a statement.

“He is an impeccably qualified individual, and I know that he will again serve his country as a fierce guardian of the law and model of integrity once the Senate confirms him to lead the FBI".Wray represented New Jersey Gov.Chris Christie in the wake of the Bridgegate scandal. Christie told NorthJersey.com that he had “the utmost confidence in Chris".

“He’s an outstanding lawyer,” Christie said. “He has absolute integrity and honesty, and I think that the president certainly would not be making a mistake if he asked Chris Wray to be FBI director".

Wray was interviewed for the job last week, the White House said. Trump was also said to have considered politicians including Sen. John Cornyn, Rep. Trey Gowdy and mostly notably, former Sen. Joe Lieberman. He appeared to reverse course following pushback from Democrats.

Trump’s critics on both sides of the aisle including Matthew Miller, who served as Justice Department spokesman under former Attorney General Eric Holder, and Jack Goldsmith, who served alongside Wray in the Justice Department during the Bush administration praised the president’s decision to tap Wray.

The president fired former FBI Director James Comey, who had been leading an investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia, last month.Andrew McCabe, who started with the FBI in 1996 and served as deputy director under Comey, was named the acting director at the time. Former FBI Director Robert Mueller took over the bureau’s investigation of the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia after Comey was fired. Comey is set to testify in front of the Senate on Thursday and is expected to be probed about the White House’s handling of the investigation.
