New Delhi, June 23 (ANI): Terming the 1985 Air India Kanishka bombing as the most horrific incident, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Wednesday said terrorism must be fought and eliminated with determination and joint action.

"This was a horrific incident, which shook the world's conscience. No religion, faith or cause can justify such violence or inhumanity. We must rededicate ourselves to fighting and eliminating terrorism with determination and joint action," he said on the 25th anniversary of the crash.

"It is with a sense of deep pain and sorrow that I join the families and friends in paying my homage to all those who fell victim to this most barbarious act.

The bombing of the Air India Flight 182 from Canada to India that killed 329 people is seen as one of the world's deadliest terrorist strikes.
