The Prince of Arcot, Nawab Mohammed Abdul Ali, has condemned the perpetrators behind the blasts at the Mahabodhi Temple in Bodh Gaya recently. In a release here, he said that terrorism should be supressed with an iron hand and greater vigil should be maintained in the country.

The Nawab said that the miscreants had crossed all limits as they did not even spare a place of worship and added that they would not achieve anything except invoking the wrath of god.

“Their motive was clear. They wanted to inflame the people and disturb communal harmony for worsening the peaceful situation in the country,” he said and pointed out that they wished to paralyse the democratic system of the country. According to him, it was an act of cowardice on their part.

The Nawab hoped that the investigating agencies would conduct a thorough and impartial investigation without any preconceived notions and expose the culprits to the public.

The Nawab called upon fellow citizens to rally against these acts and all crimes against humanity that are a threat to the unity and integrity of the country.
