Indialogue Foundation strongly condemns the inhuman attack on the headquarters of the French weekly Charlie Hebdo that took place in Paris. There is no circumstance or condition that would justify such brutality. Ideas can only be challenged through ideas – not through violence, cruelty or terrorism.
We express our deepest sympathy and thoughts for the victims and extend our condolences to their friends and families. We also pray for the speedy recovery for the injured and call upon everyone to stand together and united against such murderous acts.
We as the Indialogue Foundation would like to stress that any terrorist atrocity, no matter who does it and for what purpose, is the greatest blow to peace, democracy, humanity and all religious values.
