PM Modi remembers victims, security personnel on 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks anniversary

Pakistan based Lashkar-e-Taiba carried out the attack in Mumbai, which lasted for four days. Terrorists took hostages at Jewish outreach centre Nariman House, Oberoi Trident and Taj Mahal Palace and Tower.

 

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday (November 26) remembered the brave hearts who countered the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks and the ones who lost their lives.

Addressing the event on Constitution Day in the Central Hall of the Parliament, the Prime Minister said, "While we are commemorating 'Samvidhan Divas' today, we must not forget the brave hearts who countered the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks and the ones who lost their lives."

He further said that the brave soldiers of the country sacrificed their lives while fighting terrorists.

"Today I bow to those sacrifices too," said PM Modi.

Today is the 13th anniversary of the Mumbai terror attack that left at least 174 people, including 20 security force personnel and 26 foreign nationals, killed and more than 300 people injured.

The terror attack was carried out by ten gunmen who were believed to be connected to Lashkar-e-Taiba, a Pakistan-based terrorist organization.

Armed with automatic weapons and hand grenades, the terrorists targeted civilians at numerous sites in the southern part of Mumbai, including the Chhatrapati Shivaji railway station, the popular Leopold Cafe, two hospitals, and a theatre.

While most of the attacks ended within a few hours after they began at around 9.30 p.m. on November 26, the terror continued to unfold at three locations where hostages were taken-the Nariman House, where a Jewish outreach centre was located, and the luxury hotels Oberoi Trident and Taj Mahal Palace and Tower.

Remembering Vinod Dua

For many, Vinod was ‘ fearless’. He wasn’t. He was a part of the establishment and he sounded more like an urban Naxal, not as a journalist in pursuit of truth during his last years.   We lost a well-known media personality, Vinod Dua, yesterday. I had known him for over three decades, and his untimely demise has left me sad. He was full of life and a karma yogi.  However, his ‘ journalism ‘ was shaped by the ideology he believed in. During h ...
