Decry those speaking against nation: Amit Shah

 BJP National President Amit Shah has called upon the youth to condemn people who speak against the nation.

He was speaking after inaugurating the Tiranga Yatra programme organised by the BJP, on the premises of Mangalore University here on Sunday.

“These days, some people have been raising questions on nationalism and propagating anti-national thoughts in the guise of freedom of speech. But, those people must remember that the nation cannot stay united without the nationalist ideology.

Those who have been opposing nationalism, referring to freedom of speech given by the Constitution of India, must remember that if there was no concept of nationalism, there would not have been a struggle for freedom. But for the freedom struggle, we wouldn’t have ever got independence and no constitution would have been formed either. But for the nationalist thoughts, there would not have been a Constitution for India. One must go through the history of the nation,” he said.

Shah paid tributes to queen Abbakka of Ullal and described her as role model for the youth.  He said the Union government had been fulfilling the dream of a welfare state.
