“Forces that strive for destruction and those who follow the ideology of creating empires out of terror can dominate for some time, but their existence is never permanent as they cannot suppress humanity forever,” he added.

His remarks come in the wake of the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan.

Modi was speaking while virtually inaugurating a few projects of the famous Somnath temple in Gujarat.

“Somnath temple was destroyed many times, idols were desecrated many times and attempts were made to wipe out its existence. But it came up in its full glory after every destructive attack, which gives self-confidence to us,” Modi said.

It was true when the Somnath temple was being destroyed in the past and it is true even today, the PM said.

Modi also said that India, which was at 65th position in 2013 in the Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Index, jumped to 34th position in 2019.
