How could the murder of innocent civilians including women and children be justified? For any tolerant society, such actions will always remain unjustifiable, illegal and illegitimate. Our heart goes out to the victims of this terror and their families. May Allah be with them at this hour of immense grief. We all are in fact grieving over such excruciating scenes,” Alam said.
