Prime Minister Narendra Modi has expressed his deep shock and sadness at the loss of scores of innocent lives in the heinous terrorist attack at the places of worship in Christchurch, New Zealand today.

In a letter to Prime Minister of New Zealand, Ms Jacinda Ardern, Mr Modi stressed India’s strong condemnation of terrorism in all its forms and manifestations and of all those who support such acts of violence. 

He stressed that hatred and violence have no place in diverse and democratic societies. Mr Modi expressed his deepest condolences to the families bereaved in this dastardly attack. He offered heartfelt prayers for the speedy recovery of the injured and underscored India's solidarity with the friendly people of New Zealand at this difficult time. 

World leaders have expressed their disgust at the deadly killings. Condemning the attacks, US President Trump in a tweet termed it as a "horrible massacre" and offered US assistance to its ally. He said his warmest sympathy and best wishes goes out to the people of New Zealand.
