By recreating return of Lord Rama in Ayodhya after fourteen-year exile on 18.10.2017 on the most appropriate occasion of Deepawali, Chief Minister Yogi Aditya Nath has for the first time made majority community of Hindus feel like living in their own country.
It is real secularism when such a bold decision based on religious aspects was taken officially without any fear of negative impact on minority votes. Otherwise till now pseudo-secularism prevailed in regimes of non-BJP governments when there was a policy of minority-appeasing for vote-bank politics. It is evident that celebrating Deepawali officially in such a grand manner also by creating world-record of lighting 171000 lamps did not in any manner hurt minorities in any manner. Rather people of minority-community engaged in preparations got earnings and employments.
Even neighboring Srilankla is taking advantage of Ramayana-tourism for promoting international tourism in that country. Likewise developing Ayodhya and other places associated with Lord Rama as tourist-attractions will promote domestic as well as international tourism creating employment opportunities including even for minority-communities.
