Condemning the terror attacks in Paris that claimed over 120 lives, PM Modi said, "What happened in Paris yesterday is an attack on humanity and the world should accept that it is not an attack on Paris, not an attack on French citizens, not an attack on France but an attack on humanity."

"It is an attack on humanitarian principles that is why all the powers that believe in humanity have to come together to condemn such attacks. All pro-humanity forces should unite to defeat anti-humanity forces. They will have to fulfill their responsibilities," he said here at the ceremony for unveiling the statue of 12th century Indian philosopher Basaveshwara.

PM Modi cited whenever evil forces raise their head, reformers like Basaveshwara take centre-stage. On the third and final day of his UK visit, he said, "It is unfortunate that I am unveiling the statue of Basaveshwara...at a time when my heart is filled with shock."

The Prime Minister called on the UN to define terrorism before it is too late so that it becomes clear who is siding with terrorism and who is fighting the menace.
