Prophet Mohammad is an inspiration for all, should be followed by all: PM Modi

While addressing his 43rd edition of monthly Radio programme 'Mann Ki Baat,' Prime Minister Modi said that it was Prophet Mohammad who believed in the concept of charity, which was important during Ramzan.

'It is our responsibility to follow the path of equality and brotherhood as morals from his life. Prophet Mohammad Sahib (peace be upon him) believed in twin principles of knowledge and compassion,' the Prime Minister said.

The holy month of Ramzan is beginning in mid-May.

In his over 30-minute address, Modi touched on a number of topics, including Indian athletes', especially women's, achievement in the Commonwealth Games, people's response to his call for fitness and also paid tributes to

Prophet Mohammad and Lord Buddha ahead of the month of Ramzan and Buddha Purnima' respectively.

Noting that India had carried out nuclear tests on Buddha Purnima on May 11 in 1998, when BJP stalwart Atal Bihari Vajpayee was prime minister, Modi said youths need to imbibe Vajpayee's mantra of Jai Vigyan' (hail science) to make India modern and strong.

Giving a call to students to join the Swachh Bharat' campaign during their summer vacation, he said three ministries of his government have launched an internship programme and it is an opportunity for those who want to work for the society, contribute positively and bring about a change.
