Media pointed out if the comments were directly pointed at Narendra Modi, to which Barack Obama said no. he said the message is for all of us. He added that he has said this to Modi in private and also preached the same message in public in both the US and the European countries. There is a lot of migration that is going on, all over the world because of which people have started looking at everything differently. There seems to be a clash of culture
