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.
