Condolences of Patriarch Alexy to Prime Minister of India Manmohan Singh on the terrorist act in Mumbai

Dear Mr. Prime Minister,

Please accept my condolences with regard to the atrocious crime committed in Mumbai - the act of terror that took dozens of human lives and wounded hundreds of people.

On these mournful days I wish peaceful rest to the souls of the killed and strength and courage to their relatives and the near ones.

I pray the Lord to heal the wounded. May the Most High grant his help to the Indian law enforcement, medical doctors, and all who try to alleviate the consequences of this evil deed.

Let us help each other in overcoming the evil of terrorism together. Let peace and prosperity be with the people of great India.

Yours truly,

Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia
