Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has expressed deep shock over Monday's dastardly terror attack on Amarnath Yatra in Jammu and Kashmir that killed seven pilgrims, including women, and injured many others.

In a condolence message to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday, Sheikh Hasina conveyed the deepest condolences to the bereaved families and prayed for the early recovery of the injured pilgrims.

“We also reaffirm our stand beside the people of India at this difficult hour,” she was quoted as saying in the message.

Hasina reiterated Bangladesh's ‘zero-tolerance policy’ against terrorism, and vowed to continue to work together with India to eradicate the menace, according to a press release issued by Bangladesh High Commission in New Delhi.

“Bangladesh maintains 'zero-tolerance' policy against terrorism and violent extremism in all forms and manifestations, and condemns such heinous acts,” she said adding, "As a close friend and neighbour we would continue to work together in our common endeavour to eradicate this menace from this region and beyond.”
