India today strongly condemned the ‘cowardly’ suicide terror attack at a cultural centre in Kabul, and said it is committed to extending all possible support to Afghanistan in its fight against terrorism.

More than 40 people were killed in the terror strike at the Shiite cultural centre near a media outlet in the Afghanistan capital yesterday.

The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said in a statement that India backs all efforts to bring stability and security to Afghanistan and remains steadfast in its solidarity with the government and the people of Afghanistan at this difficult time.

India strongly condemned the “cowardly suicide terror attack” at a media news agency and the cultural centre in which more than 40 innocent lives were lost and many injured, it said.

“India is committed to extend all possible support in their fight against the menace of terrorism and efforts to bring peace, stability and security in the country,” it added.

The ministry also extended condolences to the families of the victims of the dastardly attack.

    We live in an increasingly dangerous world, with terrorism—on the rise in many areas. Even places long considered peaceful have recently been shaken by evil acts. Many people have opined as to why Islamic terrorism is on the rise. The world offers human reasons behind the problem: social displacement, cultural and ethnic conflict, political corruption, economic inequality, and more. While there is no doubt all these factors contain an element of truth, what does God say about the real cause of global terrorism, and what does the Bible say about how to prevent it from spreading? The first point the world misses when evaluating terrorism is that it comes directly from Satan. Jesus stated, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” (John 10:10). Every act of murder and terror is an act motivated by Satan. He is the Father of terrorism. With each passing day, Satan is becoming more active in the world.
