India on Tuesday strongly condemned the dastardly terrorist attack at Kabul University, saying the "inhuman act" is a stark reminder that terrorism must be eliminated for durable peace in Afghanistan and the region.
In a statement, the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) said India stands in solidarity with those who have lost their sons and daughters in the heinous act.
At least 25 people were killed on Monday by a group of gunmen who stormed the Kabul university and engaged in an hours-long gunbattle with security forces.
"India strongly condemns the dastardly terrorist attack at Kabul University. India stands in solidarity with those who have lost their sons and daughters in this heinous act," it said.
"Education is one of the most important gains of the last 19 years in Afghanistan and must be preserved," the MEA said.
It said India salutes the aspirations of Afghan youth in their quest for knowledge, education and peace.
"This inhuman act is a stark reminder that terrorism, in all its forms, must be eliminated for durable peace in Afghanistan and the region," the MEA said.
