"Eleventh September...two contrasting images come to the mind. Today we pay tributes to all those who lost their lives in gruesome 9/11 attacks," Modi tweeted.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday paid tributes to the victims of the terror attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001 in the US, and said “two contrasting images come to the mind” as on the same day in 1893 Swami Vivekanand delivered his historic speech at the Parliament of World’s Religions in Chicago.

The terror attacks carried out by the Al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 people and left over 6,000 injured in New York and Washington D.C. The twin towers of the World Trade Centre were destroyed in the attack.
