I’m trembling, numb, frustrated, angry, sad, shocked, helpless, speechless and even in tears by a senseless terrorist act that involved senseless killings of soft targets by terrorists who did not even spare Women and small Children… shooting indiscrimately at point blank ranges
Are we living on a civilised planet !? How do we bring up our children on this planet !?
This Terrorist Hell began in South Mumbai on the night of Wednesday, November 26, 2008 and we salute our Security Forces,especially the Marine Commandos and the National Security Guard (NSG), for ending it this morning
Eleven Terrorists have been chased and killed and one captured. 195 people have died in their strike including a top encounter specialist, the head of our anti terrorist squad, an Army Major assigned to NSG duty and an Additional Commisioner of Police
These Terrorists came in by Sea and struck Terror at several places including at the Taj and Trident Luxury Hotels in South Mumbai entering them on Wednesday night and firing indiscriminately at Hotel Staff and Guests in the Lobbies and Restaurants and even Rooms…. they were well armed and well trained and knew the hotel layout, having conducted recees in months earlier.
We, Indians, salute our Security Forces,especially the NSG for quick and effective action and flushing out these evil men and killing them and their plans to blow up these Hotels that are icons for India’s growing Economic Strength
Our Coward Politicians who hide behind these NSG Black Cat Protection, should learn Life’s lessons from these very same NSG Commandos… Humility, Selflessness, Patriotism, Sense of Duty, Professionalism… Commandos were humility and patriotism personified when they were interviewed on TV….. “it is our duty” …”We will protect everytime and not leave any terrorist from where ever they come” On being appreciatively queried how they are able to “Keep Smiling” one of them said “That’s our strength and spirit and morale booster” .
NSG, WE ‘SALAAM’ YOU !
While immediate Family and Close Friends are safe, we sadly lost a few who we personally knew, who were dining or staying at the Hotels on this Fateful Wednesday Night
Many Politicians across parties in Maharashtra and even around our Nation should be shamed in their insensitiveness and ineptness in handling this crisis and not thinking twice in trying to extract political mileage from this crisis
If these politicians had any moral conscience they should resign from their posts and swear never to contest elections again… Their Hide is even thicker then the Bullet proof Vests worn by our security personnel! Many of them are themselves responsible for Financial Terrorism and even Physical Terrorism in our Great Nation
Over 30 News Channels were carrying the seige live or in deferred relay for security reasons. There were three hostage situations at the Taj, Trident/Oberoi and at the Nariman House (largely Jewish residents) in Colaba. Operation Black Tornado and Operation Cyclone were names given to the rescue and assault operations by the NSG
Those responsible for this dastardly and inhuman and animal act have created their own Hell
We mourn all those who have died in this Senseless Tragedy
We salute those who took on those bullets for us… We Love you all
We are proud of all of you
Humble and Heartfelt Thanks
