He said “It is now clear that our soldiers will give a befitting reply to those who try to disrupt the atmosphere of peace and progress in our country. We believe in peace and are committed to preserve it, but not at the cost of our self-respect and sovereignty,” in Mann Ki Baat.
Mr Modi shared his points and vision on peace just after India celebrated the second anniversary of the Army’s surgical strike occurred in Septemeber 2016, in which the Indian Army attacked and destroyed terror camps across the Line of Control.
Mr Modi even recalled Bapu and thanked him for his inspirational mantra ‘Gandhi Ji’s talisman’ and said it was extremely relevant today.
The Mann Ki Baat of Mr Modi was circumferencing the topics like armed forces, human rights and Swachh Bharat Mission but he majorly talked about the defence forces. He even wished the National Human Rights Commission on completing 25 years.
Mr Modi cleared his perspectives and visions on peace and said that India had been committed for maintaining world peace and more than one lakh soldiers had sacrificed their lives for peace in two World Wars. The sacrifices made by our soldiers were at the time when India had no relation in those wars. Our Country never attacked the foreign land to occupy but it only holds an intention to maintain peace.
Mr Modi added that India’s youth should know about the valour stories of our armed forces.
India and Pakistan had joined meetings and events at UN General Assembly in which foreign minister Sushma Swaraj blamed Pakistan for not actively working to end up terrorism.
Pakistan has been an abode of terrorism. Though its Prime Minister claims that it has stepped forward for the peace but frequent attacks and terrorist activities prove his words completely bogus.
