INDIA: It has been 14 years since ten men stormed into India’s financial capital and struck terror into the minds of Mumbaikars on November 26, 2008. On Saturday, President Droupadi Murmu, External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar, and other leaders paid tributes to victims of the 26/11 terror attacks.
External Affairs Minister Jaishankar, while remembering the 26/11 Mumbai attack victims, said that terrorism threatens humanity.
Meanwhile, External Affairs Minister S Jaishankar took to Twitter and wrote, “Those who planned and oversaw this attack must be brought to justice. We owe this to every victim of terrorism around the world.”
The External Minister shared a short video that showed the details of the attack in numbers. More than 174 people, including 20 security personnel and 26 foreign nationals, died in the terror attack, leaving nearly 300 people deeply injured and traumatized.
The video consists of clips from the incident and the recent speech of PM Modi at the ‘No Money for Terror’ Ministerial Conference, where he put force on his saying, “We will not rest till terrorism is uprooted.”
The minister went on to say, “Terrorism threatens humanity. Today, on 26/11, the world joins India in remembering its victims. Those who planned and oversaw this attack must be brought to justice. We owe this to every victim of terrorism around the world.”
Terrorism has always been a reason for a country’s backwardness. It has only divided countries, states, religions, and people around the globe. “No Money for Terror” is an initiative to free the nation from such toxic activities.
Defence Minister Rajnath Singh also paid homage to the victims of the Mumbai terror attacks. He took to his social media handle and wrote, “I salute the memory of all those who lost their lives in this incident. My heartfelt tributes to the security personnel who sacrificed their lives while fighting this attack. This country has not forgotten the incident of 26/11, nor will it ever forget.”
