There is no place for such barbarism in our region, says PM

New Delhi, Apr 21 (UNI) Strongly condemning the horrific blasts in Sri Lanka, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday that there was 'no place for such barbarism' in the region and India stands in solidarity with the people of the Island nation and will help in whatever way it can.

Mr Modi had telephonic conversations with the Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena and Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and conveyed heartfelt condolences on his own behalf and on behalf of all Indians at the loss of over 150 innocent lives in today’s terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka.

'Strongly condemn the horrific blasts in Sri Lanka. There is no place for such barbarism in our region. India stands in solidarity with the people of Sri Lanka,' Mr Modi said.

Prime Minister Modi condemned in the strongest terms the serial terrorist attacks, perpetrated at sites including religious places and during a religious festival. Terming them as cold-blooded and pre-planned barbaric acts, he pointed out that these attacks were another grim reminder of the most serious challenge posed to the entire humanity by terrorism in our region and the entire world.

Mr Modi renewed the offer of all possible help and assistance to Sri Lanka for ensuring its security against the challenges such as those posed by terrorism.

He also wished the injured speedy recovery and offered all required assistance for their treatment.

India stands with the citizens of Sri Lanka, in such a crisis India will do whatever it can to help Sri Lanka, Mr Modi said at a public meeting at Chittorgarh in Rajasthan. 'India strongly stands by Sri Lanka at this difficult hour,' he said.

Praying for the bereaved people, he said 'My thoughts are with the bereaved families and prayers with the injured'.

BJP chief Amit Shah in support of Sri Lanka after the serial blasts said "India strongly condemns such acts of terror".

At least 140 people have been killed and more than 400 hospitalised in multiple explosions that hit two Catholic churches here in Sri Lankan capital Colombo, as worshipers had gathered in large numbers to attend the Easter services.
