Mr. Estrosi further stated that one of the victims of this brutal attack was working as a caretaker at the basilica. After an inquiry was conducted and witnesses were questioned, it was known that the worshippers were present on the church’s campus at the time of this brutal attack.
Certain worshippers were able to raise the alarm with the help of a special kind of protection system used in the city. That is the reason the attacker was detained shortly after he injured and killed three people. Otherwise, it could have been even worse.
Interior Minister’s Appeal To People
The interior minister of Nice, France has appealed to the residents of the city to avoid visiting the area that was attacked. He further said that he would convene a rising meeting at the ministry of Paris where everything related to the attack would be discussed in detail.

The French Council of the Muslim Faith also condemned the brutal attack that took place in the church. They spoke many things related to the attack and spoke of its solidarity with the victim and their family members.
This is not the first time when Nice witnessed a brutal attack. In 2016, Nice became the target of France’s one of the most brutal attacks when a Tunisian drove a truck into a crown of the people celebrating Bastille Day on 14 July. As per the reports, that attack took the lives of 86 people.
This attack is followed by another attack that took place in a school in North-West Paris. A teacher. Samuel Paty, at Conflans-Sainte-Honorine school, was beheaded for showing some cartoon of Prophet Muhammad to her students. The cartoons were considered controversial by some people, as a result, she was beheaded.
This incident has again created a situation of panic in the city. It is believed that France’s government’s decisions against Radical Islam have angered countries like Turkey and many more.
Let us hope that everything comes at peace. No religion is good or bad. Rather it’s one perception of how he/she sees and observes things. Fringe elements are present in every religion, and just because of these people, the whole religion should not be blamed.
