Candlelit vigil to protest deadly terrorist attack in India

A candlelight vigil and march will take place in the city this evening to remember the victims of a terrorist attack in India this week.

At least forty soldiers were killed in a terrorist attack in the disputed Kashmir State on Thursday when a suicide car bomb rammed a convoy and blew itself up.

The attack, the worst to take place in the troubled region in 20 years, has been claimed by the Pakistan based terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed.

The Indian Cultural & Sports Community Galway has organised a peaceful gathering to take place at Galway Cathedral this evening to commemorate the victims of this attack and condemn terrorism.

The event will start at 7pm sharp and last until 7:30pm.

At the beginning Father Peter Rabbit will speak to the gathering for a few minutes.

That will be followed by one minute’s silence and a short march around the Cathedral lit by candles.

The group has said that the march is intended as peaceful and inclusive, anyone attending shouldn’t shout slogans, or have any banners offensive to any community, country, or religion.
