India's heritage can become the harbinger of world unity, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi.

While inaugurating the international museum expo 2023, he said that when a country starts conserving its heritage it gives rise to closeness with other countries also. 

PM Modi suggested that every family create a family museum of their own family. He said that simple things of today will be an emotional property for the coming generations.

He exhorted schools and other institutions to create their own museums. 

He also asked cities to create city museums. This will create huge historical wealth for the future generations, he added.

Modi also mentioned the collective challenges of smuggling and appropriation of artefacts and said that countries with ancient cultures like India have been struggling with this for hundreds of years.

He pointed out that many artefacts have been taken out of the country in an unethical manner before and after independence and urged everyone to work together to put an end to such crimes. 

He also expressed delight that various countries have started returning India’s heritage amidst the increasing reputation of India in the world.
