New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday wrote to Jordan's King Abdullah-II Ibn Al-Hussein, saying he was "deeply shocked and saddened to learn of the brutal killing of Flight Lt. Muath al-Kasasbeh."

In his condolence message, the Prime Minister wrote, "This incident is a stark reminder that the persisting menace of terrorism and extremism continues to remain a formidable challenge, calling for a concerted and sustained response from the global community. We strongly condemn such heinous, senseless and cowardly acts."

"In this hour of grief, India stands in solidarity with the bereaved family and the people and Government of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan," he added.

Jordan had vowed to strike the Islamic State hard after its pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh was burnt alive by the militant organisation.

The pilot was captured by the group after his fighter jet crashed in Raqqah in Syria.

n Wednesday Jordan hanged two Iraqi prisoners — Sajida Rishawi and Ziad Karbuli — who were affiliated to the IS.

King Abdullah II of Jordan said the country's response to the killing of the pilot by the Islamic State (IS) group will be harsh.
