New Delhi, Sept 11 (IBNS): Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday recalled Swami Vivekananda and said history would never have witnessed such dastardly acts as the 9/11 terror attack had we followed Swamiji's message.

Delivering a speech on the anniversary of legendary philosopher's soul-stirring address at World Parliament of Religions in Chicago on 11th September 1893, Modi recalled Swami Vivekananda`s message of universal brotherhood.

He said, “Through his address, Swami Vivekananda drew the entire world`s attention to our Nation`s rich history and strong cultural roots.”

“Sisters and brothers of America"…with these words of Swami Vivekananda, India`s message of universal brotherhood reverberated across the world,” Prime Minister added.

The attack of 9/11, which rocked United States of America in 2001 also happens to fall on the same day, September 11.

On this context, Modi said, “There are 2 images of 11th September - one of the trail of destruction in 2001 and the other - the message of Swami Vivekananda in 1893.

Had we followed Swamiji`s message, history would never have witnessed such dastardly acts as we saw on 9/11 terror attack on 11th September 2001 in USA.”

“Let us remember the words of Swami Vivekananda and dedicate ourselves to furthering the cause of unity, brotherhood and world peace,” the Prime Minister said.
