Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said that terrorism has threatened and challenged humanity across the globe and is bent upon destroying the humanitarian forces.

Sharing his thoughts with the people of the country and abroad through his ‘Mann Ki Baat’ programme on All India Radio, PM Modi said noted that "not only India but all humanitarian forces will have to unite to defeat the menace of terrorism".

For over four decades, the PM said, India has been raising the issue of terror.

"The Constitution of India, which countrymen feel so very proud of, bears an indelible stamp of Babasaheb's able leadership," he said.

"Babasaheb ensured the welfare of every section of society and his contribution in making the country prosperous and strong can never be forgotten," he added.

Prime Minister also congratulated those belonging to the Navy and applauded their efforts in National building and humanitarian ventures.
