India Marks 9th Anniversary of Deadly Mumbai Terror Attacks

NEW DELHI – India marked on Sunday the ninth anniversary of the deadly Mumbai terror attacks that had killed about 166 people and injured hundreds more.

On Nov. 26, 2008, 10 heavily-armed militants stormed the city, attacking a number of sites including two luxury hotels, the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel and the Oberoi Trident, the popular tourist restaurant Leopold Cafe, as well as a Jewish center.

“We salute all those brave women and men who lost their lives in the gruesome 26/11 attacks in Mumbai. Terrorism has become a global burden,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said during a monthly radio address to the nation on Sunday.

He added that India’s concern over terrorism was not taken seriously even a few years ago, but “today when they too are victims of terrorism, every government in the world, those who believe in humanity and democracy, see terrorism as the biggest threat.”

Meanwhile, survivors and families of victims, along with security forces personnel, gathered at various events to pay tribute to the victims to mark the day.

Images released by epa showed police taking part in a ceremony and relatives paying tribute at memorial sites.

India accuses the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba and chief of the Jamaat-ud-Dawah (JuD) – believed to be a front for the LeT – Hafiz Saeed for masterminding the attack that targeted the heart of India’s commercial capital.

Coincidentally, just three days before the ninth anniversary of 26/11, Saeed, who has been under house arrest since January was freed by Pakistan, creating much uproar in India.
