for Justice and Peace strongly condemns the act of bomb terror in the
northern towns of Lucknow, Varanasi and Faizabad that have claimed a dozen
precious LIVES so far. There are reports of over 20 persons being injured.
We express our deepest condolences to the bereaved families. We also
appeal to all persons, in power and in public life, to exercise restraint
and caution so that the fallout of the terror acts is not more hatred and
retributory violence. Only lasting peace and inter community trust and
tolerance can combat the politics of bomb terror and mob terror.
