The All India Democratic Women¹s Association [AIDWA] strongly condemns the terrorist attack in Swaminarayan Temple in Gandhinagar, Gujarat in which more than thirty innocent people and children have been killed and many others are severely injured. AIDWA expresses its deep condolences to the family members of the victims of this outrage.
The AIDWA appeals to the people of Gujarat and particularly the women of Gujarat to stand united against forces that seek to further the deepen communal divide in Gujarat. Inhuman attacks such as these that target innocent people and do not even spare children can have no justification whatsoever.

The AIDWA demands that the Central Government and the State Government of Gujarat take proper measures to ensure that peace and harmony are maintained, particularly in view of the call for Bharat bandh given by the Vishwa Hindu Parishad that had been the signal for widescale violence post Godhra.
