SRINAGAR: Separatist groups in Kashmir today condemned the Taliban suicide bombing in Lahore, calling it a "mindless" attack on humanity and urged the international community to take a united stand against it.

"We strongly condemn the terror attack at Gulshan Iqbal Park in Lahore. Terrorism in any form and at any place is condemnable," chairman of moderate Hurriyat Conference Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said here.

He expressed solidarity with the government and the people of Pakistan on the "mindless" terror attack, and said there is no place for such "inhuman practices" in Islam.

"At a time when common masses in most parts of the world were getting killed in the similar mindless acts of terrorism, and the way terrorism is fast becoming the biggest challenge for humanity, the international community needs to take united stand against terrorism and make combined efforts to curb this menace," he said.

Hardline Hurriyat Conference chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani also condemned the attack and asked Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to identify the terrorists behind it and give them exemplary punishment.

"The attack has shamed humanity and those involved in such type of terrorism cannot be termed as humans. Even if they are hanged publicly, that would not be enough," Geelani said.

JKLF chairman Yaseen Malik said the "barbaric" attack in Lahore had tarnished every human heart and mind.

"The perpetrators of this attack cannot be termed as human and part of civilised world. Kashmiris condemn this heinous criminal attack," Malik said.

The activists of JKLF organised a protest rally here against the attack.
