New Delhi, Jan 01 (ANI): While speaking to ANI in an exclusive interview Prime Minister Narendra Modi spoke in detail about cow vigilantism. Condemning cow vigilante violence, PM Modi said, “No such incident reflects well on a civilised society. No voices should ever support such incidents. This is totally wrong and condemnable. Did it start after 2014? This is a result of ills within the society. For improving this situation, we should all work collectively. I am not at all in favour of pursuing a debate that this happened in this government and vice-versa. Even one incident is condemnable.” PM Modi further emphasized on ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’ saying, “A Muslim scholar based in the Gulf, wrote about India’s harmony in diversity whereas in their region people of the same faith attacked each other. India should take pride in this compliment. Under ‘Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas’, around 18,000 villages in India didn’t have electricity we didn’t do this by asking which villages are of which community. What Mahatma Gandhi, Vinoba Bhave used to say, the sentiments reflected in the Constitution. It is the responsibility of every citizen to respect those sentiments and if you honour those sentiments then our sentiments are also respected.” The Prime Minister also said that in order to improve the situation everyone will have to work collectively. “To create this environment, everybody should contribute. India should take pride that we have been living in harmony since ages. There should be no such incident in the society. But, we should understand what the main fabric of the society is.”
