Manchester attack

Rajnesh Ishwar Lingam Nadawa, Nasinu | Saturday, May 27, 2017
I pity the families and friends of the 22 innocent people, including children, who were killed in an attack at a crowded concert in Manchester.

While Monday's bombing ripped through a crowd and created terror within minutes, the residents of Manchester stood together in spite of oppression and terrorism and have showed defiance against the suspected suicide bomber.

On TV the crowd was seen chanting "Manchester, Manchester" and many openly wept thinking about Monday's events.

I consider myself lucky that I am living in a peaceful country where one does not need to fear attacks.

On the same token, one should not take things for granted and must put our security forces on alert.

What happened in Manchester may be far away from our beloved Fiji but we are not out of reach of the powerful clutches of technology and terrorist attacks.

Let's remain calm and united and combat any such attacks.

I pray that the souls of the lost lives in the calamity find solace and peace.

On the other hand, the Red Devils were not deterred by the Manchester attacks.

In fact, the team was emotionally strengthened as was seen during the Europa League final against Ajax, which went in favour of the most decorated team in EPL.

I congratulate Manchester United for making it into the Champions League.

Now we have the Community Shield, Capital Cup and Europa League trophy.

The future of the Red Devils definitely looks bright under Portuguese Jose Mourinho.
