Last Updated: July 13, 2006 15:36 IST

The Union Cabinet on Thursday passed a resolution condemning the serial blasts in Mumbai and Srinagar.

Following is the text of the resolution adopted at the cabinet meeting:

'The cabinet expresses its profound sense of shock and outrage at the series of blasts in Mumbai and Srinagar on July 11, resulting in heavy loss of life and suffering. It condemns in the strongest terms the senseless, inhuman and dastardly attack by terrorists on tourists and the innocent people of this country.'

'The cabinet conveys its deepest sympathies to all those who have lost their loved ones. An immediate priority is to ensure that the families in distress get all possible relief and the injured are provided the best medical attention.'

'The government reiterates its strong commitment to combat terrorism in all its forms. Nothing will deter us from our firm policy to fight this menace till it is wiped out. We are determined to apprehend and bring to justice all those responsible for the evil acts in Mumbai and Srinagar.'

'The cabinet, simultaneously, pays tribute to the people of Mumbai and Srinagar for their resolve to triumph over terrorism and return quickly to normal life. The spontaneous response of Mumbai's citizens to provide succour to those in pain stands out strikingly. It is a towering example of fellowship and the best in human beings.'

'The cabinet also acknowledges the truly laudable work done in Mumbai by the public services, firemen, railway staff and medical personnel in providing relief.'

'The cabinet recognizes the tremendous resolve, displayed over the years, by the people of Jammu and Kashmir to withstand terrorism. They have not let these influences impair our national unity and secular fabric.'

'The spirit displayed by Mumbai and Srinagar has demonstrated very emphatically that terrorism cannot succeed. Such forces will never be allowed to check our nation's march to economic growth and prosperity.'
