We never attacked any country: PM

By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, Oct 2 - India has never attacked any country nor has it ever coveted anyone�s territory but made supreme sacrifice fighting for others, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said today.

�India has not attacked anyone. It is neither hungry for any territory. But in the two World Wars (in which India had no direct stake), 1.5 lakh Indian soldiers had laid down their lives fighting for others,� the Prime Minister said at the inaugural ceremony of the Pravasi Bharatiya Kendra, a modern complex dedicated to overseas Indians here.

His statement came days after the Indian Army�s surgical strikes on terror launch pads across the Line of Control as also in the backdrop of Pakistan�s constant clamour for highlighting the Kashmir issue at the international fora.

Modi lamented that despite the great price paid by Indians, India could not make the world realise the importance of its sacrifice. He said whenever he went abroad, he made it a point to visit the memorials for the Indian soldiers.

The Prime Minister said the Indian diaspora did not believe in indulging in politics or grabbing power abroad. � PTI
