Condemning the attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team in Pakistan, BJP on Tuesday said it is high time that the world recognises the concerns raised by India all along.

The party said the incident will force the global community to declare Pakistan as a terrorist state.

"The world will be compelled to recognise Pakistan as a terrorist state after this attack. Our party was the first to oppose sending Indian team to Pakistan," BJP spokesman Rajiv Pratap Rudy said.

"We condemn the attack. It is not only an attack on cricket but also on the peace loving world fraternity. The incident signifies the urgency for the world community to recognise the concerns which India has always been raising," he said.

Terrorists attacked the touring Sri Lankan team in Lahore, leaving five policemen dead and injuring six players.
