Prime Minister Modi pays tribute to Easter Sunday terror attack victims at St. Anthony’s Church during his Sri Lanka visit

PM Modi was invited by the Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena who had recently attended Modi's swearing-in ceremony.

Following his visit to the Maldives, Prime Minister Narendra Modi began his Sri Lanka visit by paying tribute to the victims of the ghastly Easter Sundar terror attack victims at St. Anthony’s Shrine, Kochchikade.


Showing solidarity with Sri Lanks and the victims of the deadly terrorist attack which claimed the lives of hundreds of people, PM tweeted that he was confident that the country would rise again and that India stands in solidarity with the people of Sri Lanka.


Prime Minister Modi is on his first overseas visit after taking oath for Prime Minister’s office for a second time. He arrived in Sri Lanka today where he was given a ceremonial welcome by the Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe at the airport. He was invited by the Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena who had recently attended PM Modi’s swearing-in ceremony. PM Modi is expected to meet Mahinda Rajapaksa, Sri Lankan Leader of Opposition, and Tamil National Alliance leaders.

India had alerted Sri Lanka of a possible Jihadist attack but the country did not pay any attention to the warnings thinking that India was attempting to create enmity between Sri Lanka and Pakistan. Consequently, Sri Lanka paid a heavy price for ignoring intelligence warnings. India is now providing intelligence assistance to Sri Lanka in the investigation of the Easter terror attacks.
