In a shocking incident, gunmen opened fire on people enjoying a last evening out in Vienna before a Coronavirus lockdown on Monday evening in a terror attack that left at least three dead — including one of the attackers — and 15 wounded. Reacting to the incident, Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut on Tuesday highlighted how all countries should also condemn incidents that take place in India, just as they are now coming around to taking a united stand on the recent events in France and now Austria.
In a tweet, the actor said referring to the riots in the national capital and Bengaluru earlier this year said, “When Delhi was burning, Bangalore was reduced to ashes Europe didn’t say a word instead took a ‘secular’ stand”, alleging there is an effort now to turn Europe into a graveyard.
‘Europe did not say a word’
“People know that you have to pay a huge price for INDIFFERENCE….. CAN YOU?” Kangana added.

World leaders extend support to Austria
Several countries and world leaders have come in support of Austria after terrorists attacked six different locations in the country. French President Emmanuel Macron tweeted that the French “share the shock and grief of the Austrian people hit by an attack tonight”. “After France, this is a friendly country that has been attacked. This is our Europe … We will not give in,” he wrote.
UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson also condemned the attack saying, “I am deeply shocked by the terrible attacks in Vienna tonight. The UK’s thoughts are with the people of Austria – we stand united with you against terror.”
Our prayers are with the people of Vienna after yet another vile act of terrorism in Europe. These evil attacks against innocent people must stop. The U.S. stands with Austria, France, and all of Europe in the fight against terrorists, including radical Islamic terrorists.

The attacks, in six locations including near a synagogue in the centre of the city, were carried out by “several suspects armed with rifles”, police said on Monday night. The attacks started at around 8 pm (1900 GMT) when the first gunshots were heard in the city’s centrally-located first district.
Authorities in Vienna urged people to avoid all open spaces and public transportation. Police said trams and buses were not stopping and urged social media users not to post videos of the police operation so as not to endanger officers.
