Top political leaders of Tamil Nadu have strongly condemned the multiple blasts in Churches and Hotels at Colombo in Sri Lanka and termed them as 'inhuman' and 'merciless' attack. All India Anna Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam (AIADMK) coordinator O Panneerselvam and co-coordinator Edappadi K Palaniswami said those behind the incidents were merciless to have attacked those worshipping. “We condemn the inhuman and merciless attacks,” they added in a joint statement.
DMK president M K Stalin, in a statement, said the trend of targeting places of worship in several countries -like in New Zealand where an attack took place recently - was a big challenge to humanism that should be thwarted by humanitarian forces. PMK chief S Ramadoss, in a press release, said the explosions were shocking and a "painful irony" that it was on Easter Sunday which commemorated the resurrection of Jesus who preached only love.
