PM Modi greeted the nation on the auspicious beginning of Ramzan month and prayed that it develops the strength of peace and harmony in the country which is “proud” to have people from all faiths and communities.
In a tweet, he said, “Greetings on the start of Ramzan. May this holy month enhance the spirit of togetherness, peace & harmony across the world.”
Mr Modi also said that in India, believers and athiests as well as “those believing in idol worship” and “those opposing the idol worship” co-exist peacefully. He hailed the fact that in India is the true example of “Unity in Diversity”.
Prime Minister also conveyed the same message during his ‘Mann Ki Baat’, later in the morning. In his monthly radio programme, he said, “I convey my hearty greetings to everyone in India and elsewhere in the world, especially the Muslim brethren at the advent of the auspicious month of Ramazan.”
The Indian PM further said, “We Indians are very lucky that our ancestors have created such a tradition that today India and its 1.25 billion people can take pride in the fact that people from all communities and faith are available here.”
“We have adapted ourselves to the myriad kinds of ideologies, different ways of worshipping and all types of traditions and imbibed the art of co-existential living,” he added.
He expressed confidence that the holy month would be helpful in further strengthening these values of peace, unity and goodwill.
