Fight must be against ‘terrorism’, not ‘Islam’: JD (U)

New Delhi: Condemning the horrific 13/11 carnage, Janata Dal (United) leader K.C. Tyagi on Monday cautioned that the fight should be against terrorism and not against ‘Islam or the Muslim’ community.

“Increasing terrorism is a threat to the entire humanity. Many countries of the G-20 are also responsible to encourage it which has created destruction in Iran and Iraq,” Tyagi said.

Expressing solidarity with France and condemning the deadly 13/11 carnage, US President Barack Obama said yesterday that the attack was directed specifically towards the ‘civilised world’, and assured his full support in hunting down the perpetrators of the attack.

“The skies have been darkened by the horrific attacks that took place in Paris just a day and a half ago. We stand in solidarity with France as this is an attack on the civilised world,” Obama said after holding bilateral talks with his Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan at the G20 Summit.

Earlier, French President Francois Hollande said the Paris attack were an act of war that that been organised, planned from the outside with ‘inside’ help and swore a merciless retribution. (ANI)
