26/11 has blown apart a little part in every Indian. But each one of us feels it in a different way. some speak, some curse , some vent, some sit in despair , some don’t bother to say, some react as its their job, some feel as they have lost their family , some repeat the telecast to earn more money, some react as injustice has been done ,some react as forced by few, some are on the job as its their duty, some do as its politics, some react as its time to earn money and most of them still waits to see some God sent angel will come and provide security in out country.
Goddamn the insensitive politicians, inept bureaucrats and powerless police. India pretends to be a democracy. It has many flaws but it is legitimate. We need to reform the police ASAP.Speed up justice IMMEDIATELY. Make babus accountable without Delay. Stop criminals from entering politics ASAP . And Goddamn the sleeping society.. who do not react inspite of watching it again and again.
It is so frustrating the way the Mumbai crisis is being handled. It seems that we are all being taken for a ride and we are happily accepting to be fooled.
The ridiculous politicians are still using this sad and cowardly terrorist attach for their political mileage.
It is we who have accepted the feeble and corrupted system that is simply incapable of taking on trained and highly motivated terrorists.
Major corruptions have been revealed in the police system. Lackadaisical attitude in the security system is evident till date. We have no importance to ethics or morality as the end justifies the means. The Marathi manoos is sleeping. Alexandra conquered from Greece to Indus but do we consider Indus valley as the part of Greece.
The Thackray were hiding in their homes in 26/11 and it was common marathis were helping the injured.MJ Akbar says it .. It is both easy and pointless to blame the government. Every government keeps a thermometer in its holster and calibrates its decibel levels according to ground temperature. If it's warm, it will blow hot, as Delhi did so vigorously between November and January. If it has cooled, Delhi will cool it as well. It is meaningless to blame our Opposition. We have an Opposition that has become impotent without ever turning potent. The politician will only be as resolute as the citizen, and our sensitivities have been dulled by a culture of complacence. Even trauma has been reduced to television drama; once the scenes are played out, our bluster slowly splutters into silence”
Ajmal Kasab was the only attacker captured alive by police and is currently under arrest. He was the only only person the country sleuths were on the job untill after the arrest of David Headley in November 2009 in the United States, investigators determined that he had a key involvement in the 26th November attack.
This disclosure has come when National Security Adviser M K Narayanan had talks with CIA chief Leon Panetta in New Delhi on Saturday.What is to be seen is this disclosure coincides with the anniversary of the India Carnage ( Bombay attack). Eleven months but what kind of success? these two were arrested by the FBI in Chicago last month in connection with a Laskhar-e-Toiba terror plot against India.
Shame on our intelligence. One again I say.. Politicians should be involved in end-to-end emergency preparedness drills. Ultimately, it is they that authorize action against perpetrators. The questions of terror laws are still to be formulated.
Statistics are like a bikini; What is revealed is interesting; What is concealed is crucial.8 attacks occurred. The attack began on 26 November 2008 and lasted until 29 November. Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, the Oberoi Trident, the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower, Leopold Cafe, Cama Hospital, the Jewish-owned Nariman House, the Metro Cinema, and a lane behind the Times of India building and St. Xavier's College, explosion at Mazagaon.
It killed173 people.
Wounded 308 persons.
Among the dead were 28 foreign nationals from 10 countries.
There were 10 gunmen (terrorists).WERE shot dead.
1 was captured by security forces.
Still we have not learnt any lesson.
Want every reader to go down the memory lane ..On one hand the GATEWAY OF INDIA witnessed children, youth, old ..asking for security, accountability, their rights, agitated, full of hatred against the terrorism,,And on the other hand after the relentless appeals by the citizens and media finally forced the stepping down of Maharashtra CM.. and an apology by the Kerala CM.
Still we have not learnt any lesson. The Liberhan report is out . Much ado for nothing.
