Pranab Mukherjee terms terrorism as biggest threatMarch 31st, 2009 - 3:02 pm ICT by ANI
Jangipur (West Bengal), Mar 31 (ANI): External Affairs Minister Pranab Mukherjee has termed militancy as the biggest threat to world peace.
“We are deeply shocked to learn about the incident at the Police Academy in Lahore. Once again it proves that terrorism is the biggest menace to the world peace and tranquillity. Unfortunately, the whole region has become the victim of senseless violence of the perpetrators of terrorism. We express our deep condolence to the trainees who lost their lives and also to the security and police personnel who lost their lives in fighting against terrorists,” Mukherjee said on the sidelines of election campaign here on Monday.
The attack came less than a month after a dozen gunmen attacked Sri Lanka’s cricket team in the city, killing six police guards and a bus driver. The gunmen escaped.
The latest brazen attack will heighten fears about mounting insecurity in Pakistan. (ANI)
