VHPA condemns the gruesome and barbaric attack in Texas

via Press Release published on November 7, 2009

 On behalf of the Hindu American community of USA, Vishwa Hindu
Parishad (World Hindu Council) of America (VHPA) extends its deepest
condolences and expresses its heartfelt sympathies to the friends and
families of the victims of this cowardly, gruesome and mindless terror
attack at the Army base in Fort Hood, Texas, on November, 5th 2009,
committed by Major Nidal Malik Hasan, an Army psychiatrist.

VHPA is outraged and saddened by the murder of murder of 12 brave
American soldiers and 1 civilian, at Fort Hood, Texas. We express our
best wishes for the well being of the thirty eight soldiers, wounded in
this attack. We salute Fort Hood police Sgt. Kimberly Munley who
stopped the rampage by shooting the gunman despite being shot herself
and saved lives.

VHPA shares the distress and grief of the families of the departed
souls, and assures them that the Hindus of America stand united with
their brothers and sisters in this time of grief and sorrow.

Incidentally, Hindus in India and around the world have been and
continue to be victims of similar attacks. The Fort Hood attack drives
home the need for all Americans to unite in solidarity and support for
the families of the brave men and women we lost. This is also the time
when we must reiterate our resolve to defeat terrorism, and the
religious inspirations that fuel them, throughout the world.

In view of this gruesome attack, and the one earlier this year, in
Little Lock Arkansas, outside an Army Navy recruiting center where two
soldiers were killed, VHPA hopes that all steps are taken at the
administrative level, so that such incidents do not befall our brave
men and women in future.
