New Delhi, June 22: Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Monday condemned the terror attack on Afghan parliament, calling it a "heinous attempt by fundamentalists to subvert democratic forces".
Expressing deep concern over a string of explosions in the Afghan parliament complex, she said such cowardly attacks by terrorists can never deter the democratic traditions gaining strength the world over.
