BJP president Amit Shah on Sunday said Hindu religion has solution for all the problems in the world.

“Hindu religion has solutions for all the problems of the world... I am not saying this because I am born Hindu,” Shah said at Gujarat University convention centre, while unveiling former President A P J Abdul Kalam’s book ‘Transcendence: My Spiritual Experiences with Pramukh Swamiji’.

“When I faced difficulty for two years, I visited each and every religious centre in India. In that period, I sought blessings from all the ‘jyotirlings’ and ‘shaktipeeths’ of India, except Somnath temple (in Gujarat),” Shah said referring to the two years that he was barred from entering Gujarat due to legal proceedings in the Sohrabuddin Sheikh encounter case.

In December last year, Shah was acquitted in the Sohrabuddin encounter case.

“That was the time when I was not able to do my activities... Perhaps God made me seek his blessings in my youth,” the BJP chief said.

He added that the religious leader of Swaminarayan sect, Pramukh Swami, has given a new lease of life to Hindu tradition with the powers of saints like Shankaracharya had done with the tradition of ‘akhadas’.
