Fight against terrorism not against any religion, says PM Modi

India, the prime minister added, had been a "cradle of all major religions in the world"

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said the fight against terrorism and radicalisation was not against any religion, but against a mindset that misguides the young.

Every religion promotes human values, the prime minister said in his address at a conference on ‘Islamic Heritage: Promoting Understanding & Moderation’, where Jordan’s King Abdullah II was also present.

India, the prime minister added, had been a “cradle of all major religions in the world“.

Indian democracy is a celebration of age-old pluralism, Modi said.

According to him, all faiths promote human values. “… therefore, our youth should associate themselves with the humanitarian aspects of Islam and should also able to use modern technology”, he said.

Sharing his views on religion, Abdullah II said faith should hold humanity together.

Faith allows us to prosper and thrive, he said while emphasising that people should reject voices which spread hatred.

“Our strongest defence against turmoil is inclusion,” he said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said India’s youth should associate themselves with the humanitarian aspects of Islam and be able to use modern technology at the same time.
