‘Proud Hindu’ Rishi Sunak and his wife Akshata offer ‘aarti’ at the Akshardham temple

In order to receive blessings, Sunday morning saw the arrival of British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak and his wife Akshata Murty at the Akshardham temple. On Friday, in advance of the G20 Summit, the couple arrived in Delhi.

On Sunday morning, Rishi Sunak, the prime minister of the United Kingdom, and his wife Akshata Murty travelled to Delhi’s Akhshardham temple to worship. During a media interview on Friday, Sunak, who is in Delhi for the G20 Summit, described himself as a “proud Hindu” and stated his intention to visit a temple while he is there.

According to accounts, the pair was at the temple for almost an hour. Jyotindra Dave, director of the Akshardham temple, mentioned the visit and mentioned that Sunak entered the building barefoot, as is customary for Hindus to do while visiting a temple. We had the impression that he was quite close to Sanatana after meeting him, the filmmaker added.

“Rishi Sunak had gotten in touch with us and requested to visit the temple for darshan. We were asked what time he could come by. Dave remarked, “We let him know he may come whenever he likes. “He did aarti in the temple, talked to the saints there, and gave flowers to every idol in the building. The filmmaker told India Today that his wife participated in the pooja as well.

In addition to giving him a tour of the temple, we also handed him a replica of it. He relished every second spent here.His wife was overjoyed as well. The director said, “He said I’ll keep coming whenever I get the chance.

Prior to their arrival, the security measures surrounding the shrine were strengthened, and several police officers were stationed there. Pickets, according to a senior police official, have been set up nearby. He stated in a statement on Saturday that a checking procedure is already in place in the city because of the ongoing G20 Summit.

Sunak claimed earlier on Friday that he had participated in the Hindu holiday of Raksha Bandhan but had missed the opportunity to participate in Krishna Janmasthami; as a result, he intended to “make up for it” by going to a temple.

“I was reared as a proud Hindu, and I identify with that. I am in that way. On the day he and his wife Akshata Murty landed in Delhi, he told the news agency ANI, “Hopefully, I can visit a Mandir while I’m here for the next few of days.

Sunak and his wife Akshata Murty arrived in Delhi on Friday in order to attend the two-day G20 Summit, which got under way on Saturday.

Union Minister Ashwini Kumar Choubey gave them a warm welcome upon their arrival and wished them “Jai Siya Ram.” They received Rudraksh beads, a Bhagavad Geeta book, and a Hanuman Chalisa as gifts for their hospitality.

At their Saturday meeting outside the G20 Summit, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Sunak spoke about measures to strengthen business ties and encourage investment. The Pragati Maidan region of downtown Delhi, where the Summit is taking place, has a multi-layer security protection in place. There have been stricter traffic laws implemented in New Delhi and the surrounding districts.
