Mumbai terrorist attacks of 26/11 (26 November 2008) continue to haunt the people of Mumbai and Indians across the world. With a single arrest and trial, India and in particularly families of the victims are still waiting for the execution of the death penalty even after three years of the attacks.
At a broader level people of India continue to wait for security, law and order. Clear exposure of vulnerability to terrorist attacks, wide spread media coverage, numerous victims and bravery stories of 26/11 attack did not appear to change the mechanism to protect the citizens. With the attack of this size, one would imagine a fundamental shift in handling terrorism, focused & proactive approach to come up with a series of changes in policies, and implementation of strict law maintenance procedures. However it seems like asking for protection from internal and external terrorists is a wrong expectation from government machinery. Some terrorist acts since Nov 26, 2008:
- 13 February 2010, Pune, 14 killed, 60 injured
- 7 December 2010, Varanasi, 2 killed, 37 injured
- 13 July 2011, Mumbai, 26 killed, 130 injured
- 7 September 2011, Delhi, 12 killed, 76 injured
Terrorists continue to slaughter innocent, average hard working men and women while politicians are busy with scams and corruption.
Do you see an end to it?
