Sabrangindia's Appeal


Violence is never a solution and justice is a crying need for the survivors of bomb terror, or any kind of terror, even mob terror. The quest for justice and reparation must be based on the rule of law and not by inciteful cries of blood and revenge. More than anything else, cool headed interventions are the need of the hour.

We urge citizens to maintain peace and harmony in wake of this tragedy and not allow it to tear apart our diverse yet delicate socio-cultural fabric.
