New Delhi | Describing the terror attack in Paris as an attack on humanity, BJP today said all peace-loving countries should join hands to destroy terror outfit Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). These attacks are most painful. The attack is not on Paris alone but on the humanity, on all the peace-loving countries. It is time for all nations wanting peace and progress to unite to fight ISIS.

ISIS is not confined to a country but is a poisonous ideology which must be destroyed, BJP media department in-charge Shrikant Sharma said. He noted that Prime Minster Narendra Modi has been advocating the need for various countries to come together to fight terrorism. Sharma said Modi made a pitch for it at the UN, G-20 and other international forums.

Over 120 people have been killed in a popular Paris concert hall where attackers seized hostages yesterday in one of at least six terror attacks that unfolded across the city in the deadliest violence the French capital has seen since World War II.

At least two explosions were heard near the Stade de France national stadium where a France-Germany friendly soccer match was being played, attended by President Francois Hollande. After the attacks, Hollande declared a state of emergency and announced that he was closing the country’s borders.

Hollande, who had to be evacuated from the stadium when the bombs went off outside, said in a televised address that the nation would stand firm and united.
