"Today terrorism has become an ideology, which is not bound by national boundaries. This is a global problem," he said.

He took a jibe at those who make fun of India's tradition and culture.

"Iss desh ka durbhagya hai ki kuchh logo ke kaan par agar 'om' aur 'gaaye' shabd padhta hai to unke baal khade ho jate hain, unko lagta hai desh 16th shatabdi mein chala gaya, aisa gyaan, desh barbaad karne walo ne desh barbaad karne mein kuchh nahi chhoda hai. (It is misfortune of this country that the moment some poeple hear words like Cow and Om, they feel uncomfortable and associate it with 16th century..)," he added.
