Kolkata: Condemning the terror attack in Christchurch, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Friday said ‘terrorism in any form must be defeated.’
Banerjee said on her official twitter handle, “Terrorism in any form must be defeated. Humanity is about spreading peace and harmony. Strongly condemn the dastardly terror attack in New Zealand.”
“Condolences to the grieving families and strength to the injured to recover,” she tweeted. At least 49 worshippers were killed in attacks on the Al Noor Mosque in central Christchurch and the Linwood Mosque in the city’s outer suburb, in what appeared to be the worst attack on Muslims in a western country.
India’s High Commission in New Zealand was ascertaining details about the possibility of Indians being affected in the Christchurch attacks amidst unconfirmed reports that nine Indian nationals were missing after the shootings.
