  2. Dear sunil arora!
    We never get any response from Government. After Batala house encounter (some people killed by delhi police who is armed with AK 47, mouser etc). A top cabinet minister Arjun singh, Big dalal Amar Singh blame on delhi police that they killed innocent people. BJP release Md. Masood Ajhar in 1999 after plain hijack.

    Now what we expect from government?? nothing..

    Another blast, more people deing, getting injured …. Its all together the same story just the place and the charactors changes …. and what our government does gives strong statements, condemm the act, announces cmpensation for the dead …. Just try to think how can a life be compensated in monetory terms ? and what do we do ? we listen and say the same old comment INDIA is a great nation and we indian are great people … we will fight terrorism, show courage bla bla bla ……. But do we really mean it ??
    I dont think so, what i feel it that we do not have anything other to say …
    I as a Indian is ashamed to say that I dont feel secure in my country … I dont have trust on the administration ……..
    Now words wont do .. its time for some action …. I am not demanding for a war, its just providing security to more than 1000 million people… If america can attack afganistan for eliminating talibanis, destroy iraq on just a information that it MAY have the weapons for mass destruction …. then why we cannot take action against the militant training camps in POK and pakistan ……..
    Its now or never, things will go worse if we do not take any action, what message we are giving to these militants ??
    I am waiting for the response from our government … hoping that they might value the lifes of ALL INDIANS ….

    Firstly, my heart felt condolences to each and every person who lost his valuable live in the Mumbai incidence. To me, as Muslim, human life is more valuable then anything else.

    Now, what happened in Mumbai and who is responsible?

    The Indian version:

    Multiple, self contradictory, versions have been extended by the Indian Government agencies. The most current account of the event, as I have conceived through various Indian media channels, is summarized as follows:

    – Ten terrorists left Karachi – some 500 nautical miles from Mumbai – on trawlers with arms tons of ammunitions.

    – These terrorists traveled all the way to Mumbai.

    – Eight of these terrorists entered Mumbai through fish harbor, while two of the left with the speed boats they had traveled in.

    – These eight “rambos” carried out carnage in city streets – killing tens of innocent civilians.

    – Two of them were shot down by the Mumbai police within the streets.

    – One of them was arrested

    – Four of the snatched a Gipsy jeep from the Police and fled away.

    – The real lone “rambo” took full control of three different locations – The Taj, Obroi as well as the Naramani Point – held some over 400 hostages, fought with well over 1,000 Police and NSG personnel and yet had time to talk to his trainer – Chacha Rehman – in Pakistan as well as give interviews to the Indian media.

    Any one who believes this must be living in fool’s paradise – I have no doubt that the Indian are an intelligent nation…. what really happened….. Think and ask your Government to tell the truth…to answer the questions.

    – Where the mighty Indian Navy when these terrorist laden trawlers were in Indian waters for over 50 hours?

    – Why these trawlers were not picked up by the twenty-one radar stations, with over lapping coverage, deployed by the Indian Navy to securitize this region?

    – Where was the Indian Coast Guard?

    – Where were the Blue Water Commandos?

    – What was the Mumbai Police doing while these terrorist carried out the carnage in the streets of Mumbai?

    – Can one individual take control of three locations, concurrently – look at the number of floors, the number of rooms as well as the floor space of the locations – and hold over 400 hostages and yet fight with over 1000 law enforcers? Or was this a much larger terrorist attack as the subsequent accounts suggest?

    – Where were RAW and other Indian intelligence agencies?

    – Why these Intelligence agencies failed to “look in” and record the GPS coordinates transmitted by the Thuraya satellite phones?

    – Why the GSM monitors were not used to record the conversations between these terrorists and their master mind Chacha Rehman?

    – Was this a concurrent systematic failure of Indian security, intelligence and law enforcement apparatus I don’t thinks so. Was it something more serious; the Indian Government as well as international community must investigate the various aspect of this whole issue? India is a nuclear power but how save are its nuclear assets?

    – Involvement of a serving Indian Army Colonel is established in course of investigation of Samjotha Express incident by Indian agencies suggest a deep penetration of Army by terrorist organization such as the RSS; has the RSS penetrated into the other Indian Defense, Security and Intelligence apparatus?

    Was the Mumbai mayhem really a terrorist attack with links to some elements in Pakistan or was it a “check of penetration” exercise carried out by RSS?

    Think – don’t point fingers – Think.

  5. How reliable is the information on Pakistan? We have already seen how intelligent the Indian Intelligence “CBI” is- anyone following the “Aarushi Murder”. CBI contradicted itself so many times their verdict lost base and anything they said was just to buy time.

    Now, an agency who cannot solve a local murder can be trusted with high-level terror analysis? – PLEASE, DON’T KID YOURSELF.

    Who must Indians be angry at? The Sleeping Indian Navy who lives off the Taxes paid by Indians and cannot offer protection. Why spend millions on them. Let the Indian Navy wear BANGLES and sleep @ home.
    Someone comes into your country with a boat full of terrorists and ammunition?

    And if you are blaming Dawood Ibrahim for the attacks- then the question to all of you is- What Nationality is he?

    Wasn’t there a Pakistan link in the Malegaon blasts and apparently the Indian Mujahideen had claimed responsibility- who got arrested with evidence? A Sadhvi and Military personnel.

    To cover up their failures the Indian Intelligence always makes false claim and in the end a Hindu Sadhvi is to blame.

    Think !

    Its high time that India should learn a lesson from our neighbouring country.They have the guts to enter Indian territory and shake the lives of lakhs of people, and besides these ghastly deeds their country is unanimously denying all the facts.
    And what are our politicians are doing???They are concentrating on futile matters to break the country into pieces…
    We donot have a proper defence system and all that the politicians are doing is simply playing blame games…

    Our brave commandos n police were trying to control situation wherein these bastards were carrying tonns of highly equipped arms and ammunitions just with the help of revolvers with the fear whether they will work at proper time!!!
    That is certainly ridiculus….these politicians who beg us to vote them should go and face such situations themselves and try to save atleast one innocent life….

    What Praful said about the north Indians n terrorists is again the words coming from politician’s dictionary….

    Guys WAKE UP its high time now….These politicians talk just to win couple of votes from us…Instead of fighting within ourselves we should all come together and fight against terrorism…

    I consider that all those who know the right to vote and all that stuff are educated enough to know that we need someone who have brains to controll and manage our country

    relating this event to animal cruelty issues is absurd. There is no causal linkage. Many people in the United States yesterday ate a meal that consisted of slaughtered turkey, beef, and lamb, and have never raised a hand in anger their entire lives against their fellow man.

    And despite this act of terror, or the banality of deaths in a shopping spree in Long Island New York, there is still reason for Hope this season.

    Nation Salutes the Brave Martyrs!

    Chief Hemant Karkare (ATS)

    Encounter Specialist -Vijay Salaskar

    Spotlight into Blood Shed of Mumbai

    The Mumbai havoc on 26/11 referred to as India’s 9/11 attack. This place is called commercial capital of India, vulnerable to blasts and attacks. 127 casualties, more than 300 injured. Brutal act of violence taking a gigantic shape. Unofficial sources report the purpose of such violence, is to impact the foreign investments in India(FII) and tourism. The country has once again became the victim of “Territory of Militants” (Pakistan?). Approximately 25 evils (terroists) of LeT group, reportedly travelled from karachi on M.V.Alfa (Vietnam Ship) reached the Mumbai coast earlier in the evening(8 P.M.) on 26th November. Suspicious Underworld has co-ordinated these activities, 11 places of target include Chathrapathi Shivaji Terminus(CST) Railway Station where 10 people killed and more than 20 were injured. Similarly the violence broke out in the famous TAJ palace, Trident (Oberoi) hotels and Naramani Point. Several innocent lives are claimed, Cops have been challenged by hijack of their own vehicle. Who has supplied these terrorists with AK47,Hand Grenades and explosives? Has it been a Intelligence or vigilence Flaw? ATS is a special squad, deployed to combat with terrorist culture after the Malegaon incident. But to no effect this could stop, except to heal after the sour injury. There are many questions which can never be answered. The harmony of India is again disrupted.

    An act of Coward Ploy:

    Really it’s a shameful act by militants, hiding in a hotel and waging a coward war (Jihad). Hostages were used as human shields for retaliate Gun firing.

    Who is to be held responsible?

    How long the patience of a patriotic indian will be tested? there should be an end. We have witnessed enough promises made by the so called leaders of the country. The verdict is to “break-free”. Earn your own life, not the other way around to believe such false promises and rest to them. As we already know these politicians never walk the talk.

    Time for an Anti-Terrorist Revolution:
    An appeal to my fellow citizens! Let us pledge to dishevel the anti-social elements and march towards the terror free state of community. Awake, arise and stop not till the goal is reached!!


    PS: Together Everyone Acheive More (TEAM).

    By Line,


    “May the soul of lost lives, rest in peace!”

    look where india has reached. we were more secured when we didn’t had any nuclear deal, any arms and ammunition, any samjhauta expressetc. today having adopted more number of technologies and respecting more number of multinational we have come to a stage where we have come a great ahead and cannot even look back.
    but still we have in our mind “JAI HIND”.

  17. Hi,

    I am an Indian and not proud today all due to our respected politicians who just care for their public. But they know that people writting and reading these responses do not count in their votebank due to their small number (and they are laughing right now!)
    We pay for their Z seccurity and all the the expenses of the army, one of the biggest in the world. Is this army just to rescue the hostages or keep our pride intact!!
    Shamed to be Indian where the politicians behaved worse than my 6 year old child indicating “Pakistan has done it” and not really doing anything to be proud of or worth paying for the expenses of the huge army. Ae we not the satisfied to announce that after 24 hrs we have cleared one hotel from a few terrorists ?
    How many Indians would have not been proud on morning of27th Nov if we watched the news from channels saying that “we can now see Indian army crossing the Pakistan borders, president Obama is trying to make a contact with the Indian premiers as we do”.
    WHAT A DREAM!!!!

    aatankvadiyon ne apna kaam kardiya. hamare sainik bhi bade bahaduri se unke saath lad rahe hai.

    Par iswaqt humye ye bhi sochana chahiye ki mumbai ke saath saath ye TERRORIST aur kaha kahan pahunche hai.

    Aaj mumabi tho kal kahi aur firing ki khabar aayengi. Ho sakta ye pehale se hi sari tayari kar chuke ho. saare arms hatiyaar laa chuke ho…………….aur bas intejar hai mumbai shant hone ka……………….uske baad aur ek hamla..

    Aap koi bata sakta hai……………humye kya karna chahiye.

    We are not safe yet. We are on the next target attack.

  20. I am fully compassionate for these events and pray for the well being of everyone injured and their families, in today’s Mumbai terror attack.

    But friends, don’t you think that we humans, all of us are responsible for this. Some amongst us deliberately hurt, abuse, and kill poor, helpless, speechless animals. Rest of us are responsible for this ugly face of humanity, by simply watching silently, neglecting or allowing the abuse and molestation of these innocents. But, who cares and how many care? But, if even a single human life is jeopardized, the entire world watches and sobs!

    Look at the way animals are tortured, abused, and killed by many of our fellow human beings for their bloody taste buds, fun, recreation, research, filthy needs, or ritualistic sacrifices in the name of God or religion.

    I think humans deserve worse than such kind of things and some day humanity will kill humanity and not any natural calamity! The curses of those small baby animals whose mother die and who doesn’t get love of his mother, those mothers whose babies are killed in the name of juicy tender chickens and for so many filthy reasons, the curses of those suffered souls will come back to us like boomerang and bring such fateful events.

    May God bless the humanity with peace, love, and compassion and brings consciousness and wisdom to all those responsible for destroying the beauty of nature and true humanity!

    Let’s pray for the well being of people and their families and may the peace prevail. Let’s get together to help and support those who have been injured or families of people with casualties. Let’s be brave in these tough times.

  22. Hi Clyde,

    No sympathiess please, people are responcible for these blast.
    Why not all people comes on street against terrorist. because they supports terrorist.

    one month before MNS workers killed innocent north indians in maharastra that time they are not a terrorist and now some Gunda element kills again some people they how can we said that they are terrorist.

    i don think its a wise idea to interview the eye witnesses on national television, thus endangering the life of the eye witnesses as well.
