26/11 Terror Attack: The pain of which refuses to die
India marks the 10th anniversary of the blood-shedding Mumbai terror attacks today, Nov 26. The horrific attack in South Mumbai conducted by Lashkar-e-Taiba (an Islamic terrorist organization based in Pakistan) beginning on Wednesday, November 26 and lasting till November 29, 2008, was one of the cruelest terror act. This globally condemned attack left 174 people dead (including 9 attackers) and over 300 wounded.
Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists, 10 years back, sailed in Mumbai across the Arabian Sea from Karachi. They hijacked the Indian fishing trawler 'Kuber' by killing the crew of four and forced the captain to sail to Mumbai. Then the attackers killed the captain and entered India's financial capital city on a rubber dinghy (an inflatable lightweight boat). The terrorists carried out bomb explosions and killed innocent civilians at multiple locations, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Taj Palace & Tower, Leopold Cafe, Cama Hospital, Oberoi Trident, Nariman House, Metro Cinema and St. Xavier's College, in Mumbai. Only one of the 10 attackers of Mumbai terror attacks, Ajmal Kasab, survived the attack and other 9 attackers were gunned down by the Police. He was later hanged in 2012.
Devdiscourse strongly condemns such heinous terror acts and pay homage to the victims of Mumbai terror attacks.
