India has reacted strongly against the brutal attack by Taliban at a Peshawar school in Pakistan in which more than 100 people have been killed so far.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi condemned the attack calling it a senseless act of unspeakable brutality.

Home Minister Rajnath Singh also condemned the terrorist strike saying the inhuman attack exposes the real face of terrorism.

Expressing his condolence to the families of the terror attack victims, the Home Minister said his heart goes out to the families of those children who were killed by the terrorists in Peshawar.

Spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs Syed Akbaruddin too reacted on the micro blogging site writing, “We condemn horrific attack on innocent school children in Peshawar.

Congress leader Sanjay Jha was aghast with the brutal killing of the school children as he wrote “84 children killed by the Pakistan Taliban! So many lives devastated forever, the nightmares that will never end. Biggest fear; what next?”

      No, it will not and can not happen, at any given situation. stan is a nation formed and existing purely based on disagreements with India. All this years of history they failed to find another reason for existance. Sad truth is that, people of stan is peace and prosperity loving, but have no voice in decision making. Democaracy is always under military. Peace with India will not justify their existance, will not justify the huge buget for military, will not justify the huge military presence in the country, will tumble down their foreign policy, and will take away the power and controll the military establishment currently enjoys. Lot more easier is to maintain some occational flareups in the border, use ISI to make non-state actors play nasty games without holding responsibility, going around the world and beg for funds to fight India/terrorisum and keep fooling the people with anti India slogan. This will look after every single persons interest in the establishment and if managed to get any funds from foriegn nations to contain terrorisum/India, it's added bonus and will eventually reach their pocket. Respect will not bring peace with stan. The only way that will happen is when the military top br is subdued. And they are well aware of the risk ociated with the games they play, that is why they can't complete a sentence without mentioning their nuclear capability. They are living in constant fear. Like a culprit expecting an arrest happening anytime.Moral for ISI: Any leader is relatively more intelligent and keen to secure their position. That applies to terrorist leadership too. At some stage they will figureout they were been "used" by their creators, and to its leaders they don't care who they are fighting to; what is important is - securing contoll and power in the land they live.

        They yelled 'God is great' before yelling, 'The children are hiding under the benches, kill them!'. If there was a God he would not allow the Taliban to exist but would burn them alive eternally in . But in this indifferent universe all kinds of evils emerge. Much evil manifests in human form. The Taliban, and religious terrorists in general are a good example of how evil can completely consume a body and soul. The extremists continually demonstrate for all that they do not have a soul or a conscience, and have little mental capacity if any. There are some good people though. Good people are those who, regardless what they believe, do good things and try to help others. Some good people who I believe were stani came in and risked their lives to stop and kill the evil doers here. They are heroes. The Taliban committed sins that can never be repaired or forgiven. All Taliban should be monitored as criminals on the loose. They always seem proud to do evil things in society which hurt people. But back to the subject of good and evil. The reward for doing good is not the false promise of vain glory in the hereafter, but in the act itself. When you are making things better in the universe, or helping someone who needs help, that is the reward in itself. Do not expect to be paid in feasts or gold or immortality. That is not why you should do good things. If it is you will likely be disappointed engaging is such a selfish activity.

            Our leaders should stop making statements on these kinds of attacks. Let Pakstan go to .Maintain vigilance at our borders. stan government is equally bad. Don't offer stupid condeolences. Let Muslims kill Muslims. Let the government of stan fall. Let the Taliban take over. Our leaders should concentrate on protecting our borders and focus on our economy.The w world knows stan is a major breeding center for Islam's terrorists.
