Describing the barbaric terror assaults in France as an "attack on humanity", Prime Minister Narendra Modi yesterday asked the UN to define terrorism before it is too late so that the world knows who is backing terror and who is against it.

Condemning the terror attacks in Paris that claimed over 120 lives, Modi said, "What happened in Paris yesterday is an attack on humanity and the world should accept that it is not an attack on Paris, not an attack on French citizens, not an attack on France but an attack on humanity."

"It is an attack on humanitarian principles that is why all the powers that believe in humanity have to come together to condemn such attacks. All pro-humanity forces should unite to defeat anti-humanity forces. They will have to fulfil their responsibilities," he said in London at the ceremony for unveiling the statue of 12th century Indian philosopher Basaveshwara.
