PM Modi invokes Buddhas teaching to stand united against terror

New Delhi: Addressing Virtual Vesak Global Celebrations on Buddha Purnima, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday appealed to world leaders to come together to defeat forces trying to spread hate, terror and mindless violence.

"While Buddha's life was about peace, harmony and co-existence, there are forces in today's world whose existence depends on spreading hate, terror and mindless violence," said Modi in his keynote address.

"Such forces don't believe in liberal democratic principles. Believers of humanity must come together, defeat terror," Modi said.

Amid the ongoing second wave of coronavirus pandemic, the Prime Minister urged everyone to not lose sight of other challenges faced by humanity like say, climate change.

Mentioning that India is among the few large economies to be on track to complete the Paris targets, the Prime Minister said: "For us, sustainable living is not only about right words it is also about actions."

Further, Modi exhibited respect for the frontline workers in the fight against Covid-19, saying, "once again salute our frontline healthcare workers, doctors, nurses who selflessly risk their lives every day to serve others in need, to those who have suffered and lost their dear ones. I extend condolences."
