Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Thursday said that terrorists are not uneducated, moreover, they also have the zeal to do something in life but due to differences in values, they kill people.
Mr Singh was delivering a speech at the 17th convocation of NIT Kurukshetra here earlier today.
"Terrorists are not uneducated, they are graduates and technical degree holders. They too are young and have the zeal to do something in life. But due to differences in values, they kill people," said Mr Singh.
"On 9/11/01, the World Trade Centre was attacked. The pilots crashed their planes into the tower and killed themselves along with other people. Didn't they have any knowledge? or a good package? but they lacked the kind of values and thoughts they should have had," he added.
The Defence Minister added that Haryana is a land where every village is having Army officials or personnel.
"Haryana's Kalpana Chawla became a part of NASA's space mission whereas Haryana's Minty Agarwal, IAF Squadron Leader played a crucial role in Balakot airstrike. You don't have to become a job seeker you have to become a job creator," said Mr Singh while addressing the students.
Recounting country's strength, Mr Singh said that once China's Peking University's Vice-Chancellor had said that India has controlled and dominated China for more than 2000 years without sending a single soldier.
