Minister’s message reads as follows:

“The heinous terrorist attack at a madrassa in Peshawar that claimed at least 8 innocent lives and wounded more than a hundred is abhorrent. The targeting of innocent children and youth, at a peaceful place of learning is unacceptable.

My sincere prayers and thoughts are with the families who lost their loved ones and those wounded in this horrific attack.

The Government and the people of the Maldives condemn these cowardly acts of terror and violence perpetrated against innocent people, in the strongest terms. The Maldives stands in solidarity with Government and people of Pakistan in this tragic hour.”
