Paris bloodbath an attack on humanity: Modi

London, Nov 14 (IANS) Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday said the bloodbath in Paris that left 127 people dead was not an attack on France or its people but on humanity.

Condemning Friday night’s terror attacks in which some 200 people were injured, Modi urged the international community to give a definition to terrorism so that it could be ascertained who are in its support and those in opposition.

“Once we have that definition, we will know who helps to promote terrorism and who are the victims to it,” he said.

Unveiling the statue of 12th century scholar-philosopher Basaveshwara in London, Modi said: “My heart is filled with sadness due to what happened in Paris. This was not an attack on Paris but it was an attack on entire humanity and humanitarian forces.”

Modi also said that the statue will be an inspiration for all those who believe in democratic ideals.

Earlier, Modi had tweeted: “News from Paris is anguishing and dreadful. Prayers with families of the deceased. We are united with people of France in this tragic hour.”
