Terror acts will make India stronger: Ratan Tata

November 27th, 2008 - 6:37 pm ICT by IANS  

Mumbai, Nov 27 (IANS) Ratan N. Tata, chairman of Indian Hotels Co that owns Wednesday night’s terrorist-targeted Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Hotel in Mumbai, has said acts of terror would make India stronger.”We must show that we cannot be disabled or destroyed, but that such heinous act will only make us stronger. It is important that we do not allow divisive forces to weaken us. We need to overcome these forces as one strong unified nation,” he said in a statement Thursday.

Tata expressed his sympathy for the families of the victims and said attacks on innocent people and the destruction of prominent landmarks in India deserved to be universally condemned.

He said while the lives that have been lost cannot be replaced, it is the time to stand together, shoulder to shoulder, as citizens of India and rebuild what has been destroyed.
