9 years on as Mumbai remembers the deadly 26/11 terror attacks, Hafiz Saeed one of the masterminds of the attack has been granted freedom by the Pakistan government.
On November 26, 2008, ten Muslim terrorists entered Mumbai with weapons and plans to carry attacks in key places in the city.
The series of attacks lasted over 4 days, murdering around 164 people, including 6 at the Chabad house.
Throughout the terror attacks, the focus was Hotel Taj. The terrorists also attacked Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus ‘CST’ railway station.
“On the ninth anniversary of the Mumbai terror attacks, we mourn with the families that lost their dear ones. And we recall with gratitude the security personnel who gave their lives in the battle against evil”, President Kovind wrote on Twitter.
Israeli Ambassador to India Daniel Carmon said in the statement: “Together with India, the people of Israel mourn the victims from countries all over the globe including Israel, embrace their loved ones and the survivors. India and Israel, along with nations of the world, must do everything in their power to eradicate extremism and terrorism for a better future.”
