Everybody was jolted awake to the news of Paris Attacks.
Barbaric attacks by Jihadists (ISIS has claimed the responsibility) took scores of lives of innocent people. These co ordinated attacks happened in one of the concerts, soccer match and in few public places. Indians could easily reminisce the horrific night of 26 November Attacks, as the Paris attacks were done in same way.
November 13 2015 was one of the black days in our history. Paris was under the siege of violent attacks, there was suicide bomber attack in one of the funerals in Baghdad, Japan was hit with earthquake, twin suicide bombing took place in Lebanon.
Let us have a look how world united to show support against such heinous and bestial attacks.

Iconic buildings across all the worlds, including Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus was lit up in the colors of French Tricolor.

Taxi drivers are providing free rides to the people trying to get to safety. People are allowing victims to stay at their homes and are offering all kinds of help to the needy. These acts are a big blow to those trying to spread hatred.
