Politicians style. Use it for the next incident, please.

Words to be used on the incident: Strongly condemn, maintain peace and communal harmony, deep shock. (Deep shock? I am sure nobody misses a beat.), targeting the unity and integrity
and the hoi polloi .
Next: Sympathy with victims (note to myself: double security when I visit the city and double my own security at home), wish a speedy recovery. Express grief over loss of lives, condolences to family of bereaved.
Throw some money: Ex-gratia payment
Retribution: Promise full cooperation, we will not be cowed down, arrest and bring the perpetrators to justice.
Update: Here is an excellent one studded with gems.
Please check the state, city, number of victims and date before publishing.
