H E Sylvie Bermann
Ambassador of France to the UK
18 November, 2015
On behalf of our organisation – Vishwa Hindu Parishad (UK) / the World Council of Hindus, I wish to offer our condolences to the people of France at the massive carnage your country suffered a few days ago in Paris.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families that have been bereaved, as well as with the families of those who have suffered injuries in this barbaric attack last Friday.
We denounce unreservedly and unequivocally all acts of violence, and in particular of terrorism. In saying this and in offering our moral support to your people in their desire to uphold the values of democracy, secularism and freedom of expression, I know that I speak for all who belong to the Hindu faith.
Hoping for return of peaceful conditions,
Dr Girdari Bhan
