Hours after the Indian Air Force, in a swift 90-second attack, killed a "very large number of terrorists" at a Jaish-e-Mohammed camp in Balakot, Prime Minister Narendra Modi attended an event of the ISKCON temple in Delhi. Speaking about Bhagvad Gita, the holy book of Hindus, PM Modi urged people to not be divisive and asked them to look beyond feelings of "yours and mine." The prime minister had reached the event on a Delhi metro train.
Here are the Highlights of PM Modi's speech:
- From the smallest Gita to the biggest Gita, there have uncountable initiatives to spread its knowledge.

- Whether you are a Yogi or an ordinary person, you will get all your questions answered in Gita.
