Violence, terrorism can be tackled through strengths of heritage: PM Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said those who carry out barbaric attacks against innocent people can never belong to any religion.

Addressing an event on the theme "Islamic Heritage, Promoting Understanding and Moderation" in New Delhi yesterday, Mr. Modi said challenges like violence and terrorism can be tackled through strengths of the heritage and values, message of the religion and their principles.

He said, fight against terrorism and radicalisation is not against any religion, but against a mindset that misguides the youth.

The Prime Minister said, the most urgent need is that the youth should be linked to humanitarian Islam on the one hand and on the other hand, can use modern science for progress. Mr Modi said, India is leaving no stone unturned in empowering the Muslim youth.

He said, the government wants that the Muslim youth should have the Quran in one hand and computer in the other.

In his address, King of Jordan Abdullah II said, India and Jordan have shared the responsibility to bring peace in the world. He said, there is a need to give the youth a future with prosperity and security.

He stressed on the need to fight against hatred and violence. The visiting leader lauded India’s religious plurality in success against extremism.
