Modi said at the conference on ‘Islamic Heritage: Promoting Understanding and Moderation’ in the national capital on Thursday, “People who attack humanity in the name of religion don’t understand that the biggest casualty of their attacks is the very religion that they claim to stand for.”
PM Modi also said that India had been a cradle for all religions in the world and that peace was in India’s spirit. Jordan King Abdullah II, who landed in New Delhi on Wednesday, was also present at the conference.
Narendra Modi further said “The Government of India is leaving no stone unturned in empowering the Muslim youth. We want them to have the Quran in one hand and a computer in the other.”
He added, “We must protect strangers like we protect our own. We need to have dialogue to continue our efforts in upholding peace. We can’t afford to allow young people to be left without hope when we do have the power to draft a better future.”
