Prime Minister Narendra Modi made a pitch for unity and diversity on Sunday, saying the mantra of unity should pervade “our thought, conduct and articulation.”

Saluting Sardar Patel for geographically uniting India, Mr. Modi called for social unity in his Mann Ki Baat address to the nation. “India is a nation of diversities. There are many sects, communities, languages and castes. India is a diverse country and this diversity is our adornment,” he said. “Peace, harmony and unity are necessary for development.”

Mr. Modi’s statement follows statements made by him and President Pranab Mukherjee in the wake of an outcry over the killing of a Muslim at Dadri in Uttar Pradesh on the suspicion of storing beef and the “insensitive” statements made by some BJP leaders after the incident.
