Today India celebrates 70 years of Freedom

Dr. Dominic Dixon, Executive Director of UNADAP, celebrates the Independence day with Diplomats at the Indian Embassy in Vienna amidst preparations for the UNHRC to be held next month.

In his third independence day address, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday called for a tough and "sensitive" approach to tackle social evils such as casteism or untouchability, lashed out at Pakistan for glorifying terrorists and urged the youth to shun violence.

In a 90-minute address to the nation from the ramparts of the Red Fort amid tight security, Modi said a strong country cannot be built without a strong society which is based on social justice.
