Bangalore, Jan 1 (UNI) Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi today said that Hinduism had answers to solve the two most tricky issues of terrorism and environmental problems that were dogging the world today.
Speaking after dedicating a new temple built by Nityananda Dhyana Peetha here, he said the Hindu culture taught the world about the God who existed in the human soul. It also taught the people that they get what they practice.
''If you are good to humanity and your country you will attain God. If you go the wrong way like the terrorists did, it was a sure receipt for disaster, the Hinduism says. Broadmindedness, tolerance and acceptance of others beliefs, which were inherent in the Hindu teachings, can help wipe out terrorism in the world,'' he said Likewise, Mr Modi said the religion contributed the most in saving the environment from degradation. Trees were worshipped by the people which itself was a deed that helped environmental protection.
''UN observes a day in a year as Earth Day. We salute the nature every day. The rivers remained unpolluted until they were treated as mother goddess by the people of India. Once the rationalists said that it was just H2O and nothing to do with mythology, they started getting polluted and were now not fit for human use,'' he commented.
