Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed the 76th Session of United Nations General Assembly. In his remarks, PM Modi said, “Today, the world is facing an increased threat of regressive thinking and extremism. In such a situation, the entire world must make science-based, rational and progressive thinking the basis for development. In order to strengthen a science-based approach, India is promoting experience-based learning.”
He said that on one hand, to commemorate the 75th year of its independence, India was going to launch 75 such satellites into space, which Indian students are developing in schools and colleges.
He further said, “On the other hand, with Regressive Thinking, countries that are using terrorism as a political tool have to understand that terrorism is an equally big threat to them. It is very important to ensure that the soil of Afghanistan is not used for spreading terrorism and terrorist attacks.
We also have to be careful that no country tries to use the delicate situation there as a tool for its selfishness motives.
At present, the people of Afghanistan, the women and children there, the minorities there, need help, and we have to discharge our responsibility.”
