If man does not nurture nature, then nature reacts in the form of climate change Narendra Modi, Prime Minister
PRIME Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said dialogue was the only way to cut through deep-rooted religious stereotypes and prejudices that divide communities across the world and sow seeds of conflict between nations and societies.
The PM said he was a “product of the ancient Indian tradition that firmly believes in dialogue on difficult issues”, in a video message to the second edition of ‘Samvad- Global Initiative on Conflict Avoidance and Environment Consciousness’ being held in Yangon, Myanmar.
“As the inter-connected and interdependent world of 21st century battles a number of global challenges, from terrorism to climate change, I am confident that the solutions will be found through Asia’s oldest traditions of dialogue and debate,” he said, hinting that diplomatic channels were the only way to resolve Doklam standoff with China.
Prime Minister said the ancient Indian concept of “Tarka Shastra” (debate) is founded on dialogue and debate as the model for exchange of views and avoidance of conflict.
Talking about the environment, he said man must relate to nature and revere it and not merely consider it a resource to be exploited.
It is only natural that the search for answers are led by the humanity’s longest traditions of thought, rooted in various religions, civilisations and and multiple streams of spirituality, he said.
