PM pens article on Gandhi: all must work together to free the world from hatred

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday invited global thinkers, entrepreneurs and tech leaders to ‘spread’ Mahatma Gandhi’s ideas and teachings through innovation and said that to achieve his ideals all must work together to make the world prosperous and free from hate, violence and suffering.

“How do we ensure the ideals of Gandhi are remembered by future generations? I invite thinkers, entrepreneurs and tech leaders to be at the forefront of spreading Gandhi’s ideas through innovation,” Prime Minister wrote in an article in ‘The New York Times’.

In the piece titled ‘Why India and the World need Gandhi’, the Prime Minister wrote, “Let us work shoulder to shoulder to make our world prosperous and free from hate, violence and suffering”.

He said only then can we ‘fulfill Mahatma Gandhi’s dream, summed up in his favorite hymn, “Vaishnava Jana To,” which says that a true human is one who feels the pain of others, removes misery and is never arrogant.”

He also wrote, “Gandhi Ji, or Bapu, continues to give courage to millions globally. Gandhian methods of resistance ignited a spirit of hope among several African nations”. (UNI)
