The Prime Minister wrote to his counterpart in New Zealand showing solidarity and expressing deep shock over the ghastly attack. He offered prayers for the injured and grief for the families of the dead.

He reiterated that India is against terrorism in any and all forms or manifestations and said, “Hatred and violence have no place in diverse and democratic societies”.
