Joint Statement from NGOs in Ahmedabad
September 26, 2002

We strongly condemn Tuesday's shameful attack by the terrorists in the Swaminarayan temple in Gandhinagar, and present our condolences for the death of so many ordinary citizens. Our sympathies are with the injured and the relatives of the deceased. We hope that the Gujarat Police and the security forces would be able to arrest the guilty and give them the severest of punishment, whichever religion or community they belong to.

We appeal to the ordinary citizens of Gujarat and the rest of India to maintain restraint and pray for the peace and communal harmony to prevail in all the places. We have to fight this menace of communalism and terrorism together.
