Ahmedabad, July 12 (IANS) As his puppy analogy while talking about the 2002 post-Godhra riots raked up a controversy Friday, Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi later clarified saying all forms of life are valued.

"In our culture, every form of life is valued and worshipped," Modi said in a comment on micro-blogging site Twitter.

Modi, in an interview to newswire Reuters, was asked if he "regretted" the 2002 riots. Responding to this, Modi said: "Even If I am in the back seat of a car and a puppy comes under the wheels, will it be painful or not? Of course, it is. Whether I'm a chief minister or not, I'm a human being. If something bad happens anywhere, it is natural to be sad."
