Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday addressed a rally at Aishbagh Ram Leela ground in Lucknow, where he highlighted the challenges posed by terrorism to the world. Modi became the first Prime Minister to attend a Ramlila
event outside Delhi and his participation at the Aishbagh celebrations assumes significance in the context of assembly elections in Uttar Pradesh early next year. Without naming Pakistan, PM Modi sent out a stern message on terrorism when he said that those who help terrorists and provide them shelter cannot be spared now. “It’s not possible to protect humanity without wiping out terrorism,” said PM Modi.

Making terrorism the centrepoint of his over 20-minute speech, he said terror was the worst enemy of humanity and
called upon the world community to speak in one voice against the menace to put an end to it. “When we burn Ravana, we should remember that humanity can’t be saved lest we fight terrorism together. Those who destroy our world are modern-day ‘Ravana’,” said PM Modi. “If you think that we are free from terrorism, then you are wrong. It is a virus affecting our society,” he added.

During his address, PM Modi also urged the nation to be more vigilant against terrorist activities. He also said the world needs to united against terrorism as it has no boundaries. “If a country of 125 crore keep an eye on every terrorist activity, they will never succeed,” he said.

Aside from terrorism, PM Modi touched upon issues of communalism, casteism and nepotism saying these are other forms of evil that plague us. “Need to get rid of these ‘Ravanas’,” he said.

The theme of this year’s Dussehra here was ‘destruction of terrorism’. In the run up to the event today, there have
been many references to the surgical strikes by characters enacting Ramlila. In significant gestures, Modi was presented a Sudarshan Chakra, bow and arrow and a mace at the event, symbolising valour.

Earlier in the day, Union Home minister Rajnath Singh and UP Chief Minister Akhliesh Yadav welcomed PM Modi at the airport. Before the PM’s address, Rajnath Singh went on stage and said Prime Minister Narendra Modi proved to the world that India is no longer ‘weak’.

          Now days are numbered for agents and sympathisers including political leaders after cheap publicity,as the brave citizen of India are standing shoulder.to shoulder with this strong Govt. having bold PM. The frustration seen in some comments from some faked named person show their fear that own turn like stan is coming soon and they will be spotted and dealt with severly by the people of this country.

            Who will care for these street dogs whose only job is barking,barking and loud barking not for any valour but being scared within.This brave and bold PM is actually proved a threat to existence of many self made leaders and many anti nationals whose are being exposed before the publicspite of their din and noise the pority of PM has increased there appears to be no viable.These few few bottom burning faked named maroons ranting in IE has no say in this vast ocean of patriotism in India.

                          Let's take a pledge to get rid of terrorism from the world. Since all terrorists are Muslims and all Muslims who are terrorists are Sunni Muslims, let's take a pledge that we will not do business we will not deal with Sunni Muslims. We will not watch movies of Sunni Muslims. We will not hire Sunni Muslims. Amen.

                            I tried. As a female when I became Muslim the husband married me and then had multiple wives and slaves and forced me to wear black burqa all day long. I was sweating everywhere and smelling bad but he refused to give me break. Then he had twenty children from me. Then he gave me triple talaq and I was left to feed twenty children while he went to become jihadi to get 72 sheeps.

                                  The numbers are out. Muslims have kiIIed about 900 million people so far in the name of childmolester Mohammed and Christians have kiIIed about 800 people in the name of baaaatard child Jesus. For example, in 2015 about 85%, in 2014 75% and in 2013 about 70% of all terrorists were Sunni Muslims.
