Condemning serial blasts in Sri Lanka, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday said there is no place for barbarism in the region. He also said that India stands in solidarity with the people of the island nation.

"Strongly condemn the horrific blasts in Sri Lanka. There is no place for such barbarism in our region," he tweeted. He said, India stands in solidarity with the people of Sri Lanka.

"My thoughts are with the bereaved families and prayers with the injured," Modi said. 

The deadly terror attack in Sri Lanka was also condemned by Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, who in "strongest terms" said, enemies of humanity cannot be allowed to succeed.

"Extremely sad news from Sri Lanka on Easter. Enemies of humanity cannot be allowed to succeed in any part of the world and acts of terror should be condemned in strongest terms," he said in a tweet.

Six near simultaneous explosions rocked three churches and three hotels frequented by foreigners in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday morning, killing more than 160 people and injuring over 400 others, in one of the deadliest blasts in the island nation's history.
