Sania to express solidarity against terror

Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan, lyricist Javed Akhtar, singer Shreya Ghoshal and tennis player Sania Mirza are among prominent personalities who will gather at the historic India Gate here tomorrow to express the nation's solidarity against terror.

The 60-minute programme -- A Nation In Solidarity Against Terror -- is being organised by the Ministry of Home Affairs with a view to sending a strong message that India has the capacity, courage and confidence to overcome the threat.

"India has at regular intervals been the target of terror attacks sponsored by external terrorist organisations. The terror attacks were meant to weaken the resolve of the country and challenge its capacity to remain a peaceful and democratic Nation," an official statement said here today.

It said that November 29 is symbolic, since it was the day when the terrorist siege in Mumbai ended last year.
