Modi speaks to Sharif, says Peshawar incident an assault on humanity

New Delhi, Dec 16: Sharing Pakistan’s “pain” in the wake of the "dastardly" terror attack in a Peshawar school, Prime Minister Narendra Modi tonight spoke to his Pakistan counterpart Nawaz Sharif on phone, offering "deepest condolences and all assistance" in the hour of grief.

As a mark of solidarity with Pakistan, Modi appealed to all schools in India to observe 2 minutes of silence tomorrow for the "senseless act of unspeakable brutality" in Peshawar, where terrorists attacked a school and 141 massacred people, almost all of them children, terming the incident as an "assault against the entire humanity".

Modi told Sharif that "this terrible tragedy has shaken the conscience of the world" and "that this moment of shared pain and mourning is also a call for our two countries and all those who believe in humanity to join hands to decisively and comprehensively defeat terrorism so that the children in Pakistan, India and elsewhere do not have to face a future darkened by the lengthening shadow of terrorism."
