India has been affected by terrorism for decades
Dr. Sasmit Patra also mentioned terrorism in his address. He said that India has been suffering from terrorism for decades. Terrorists have killed thousands of innocent people in India. About 20 years ago, terrorists had also targeted our Parliament. Parliament was in session at that time. The terrorists had conspired to kill the MPs by taking them hostage. India has reached here today after dealing with many such terrorist attacks.
A common opinion is necessary on terrorism
He said that it is very sad that there is no consensus in the world regarding the definition of terrorism. Even today, the international conference to combat terrorism is awaiting consensus in the United Nations. The enemies of humanity are taking advantage of this attitude of the world. Parliaments and youth representatives around the world need to think about how we can work together in this fight against terrorism.
country runs on consensus
Rajya Sabha MP Dr. Sasmit Patra said that India believes that governments are formed by majority but the country is run by consensus. Our parliaments and IPU can also strengthen this sentiment. Our efforts to make this world a better place through debate and discussion will definitely be successful.
Adopt Gandhiji’s philosophy
Dr. Sasmit Patra said that today we all should move forward on the path of Mahatma Gandhi’s philosophy of non-violence as well as the two great mantras of India – Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam and Sarva Dharma Sambhav. Let us all build strong institutions to make the world peaceful, just and non-violent for future generations.
