BJP expresses solidarity with U.S.

By Sunny Sebastian

JODHPUR, SEPT. 12. The BJP today expressed its solidarity with the people of the U.S. at the time of the national crisis in that country in the wake of a series of terrorist attacks. The party appealed to all nations of the world to unite in fighting terrorism after formulating a joint strategy.

``In this hour of crisis, the BJP and the whole of India is with the U.S.,'' the party's central office-bearers, presided over by the national president of the BJP, Mr. K. Jana Krishnamurti, here said.

``The BJP is of the firm opinion that terrorism is a war against the human race. When terrorism is inspired by political and religious beliefs it becomes more lethal. The world is seeing it in the worst form today,'' Mr. Narendra Modi, party general secretary, who briefed the media on the opening session informed.

The 30-odd participants, who included the former national president, Mr. Kushabhau Thakre, central office-bearers, those in charge of States and heads of frontal organisations, observed a two-minute silence to pay homage to those killed in the terrorist attacks in the U.S.

``The U.S. President, Mr. George Bush, has announced an enquiry into the series of terrorist attacks that had taken place in that country.
