NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi today said that destructive forces and people who follow the ideology of creating empires through terror can dominate for some time, but their existence is not permanent as they cannot suppress humanity forever.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi's remarks come in the wake of the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan.

PM 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," PM Modi said.

"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," PM Narendra Modi added.

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

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