Mumbai Terrorists Attacks (November 2008)


Mumbai Terrorists Attacks (November 2008)

• There is a startling fact which is being exposed – The Indian Mujahideen in September had actually warned the In September that Mumbai is in our hit list. The plan of action to target luxury hotels were well set many moths ago.

• They were carrying Mauritian ID card and several other credit cards, out of which one was issued by Citibank. Yet one more time the terrorist’s attacks are carried by the Pakistani Terrorist Groups. One thing which is exasperating and rubbish is the way the Pakistan government condem all the terrorists attacks carried by their people. But actually they don’t take the required action to curb the terrorists camps based in Pakistan.

• Secondly, for how long India will act like a peace- keeping country? Some news channels are naming these attacks as India’s 9/11. But there is a big difference here, when the 9/11 world tower terrorist attack happened, the US took stringent security actions and went to the extent of attacking the Al queda base in Afghanistan.

• Why Indian Army/ Indian Government hesitate to take a firm stand against defending his people by attacking those terrorists groups that have been killing innocent Indian civilians. The most important factor which is devastating is that there is no Crisis Management Team to handle these kinds of terrorist’s attacks. Even if they have certain Anti-Squad team but still it’s ill equipped and lacks the infrastructure to deal with serious attacks like the one recently happened in Mumbai.

Mumbai Terrorists Attacks (A Wake-Up Call For The Security System)


Mumbai Terrorists Attacks (A Wake-Up Call For The Security System)

mumbai attacks targeting foreigners

• The main topic of discussion everywhere seems to be “About the terrorists attacks in Mumbai” and what exactly “The motive of the terrorists groups in Mumbai”. I have been keeping a constant watch on the news related to the Mumbai attacks. I was also interested in knowing that what are the demands of the terrorists groups?

• It’s an obvious question in everybody’s mind that what’s the motive of these terrorists groups? What exactly they want to convey by taking hundreds of hostages and killing innocent civilians in Mumbai? Startlingly, there is one big difference between the earlier terrorists attacks in India is that those people who got killed or are hostages are foreigners from the US or UK.

• Based on what I have been witnessing on the news channels shows that the terrorists groups wants to target UK and the US citizens also. One of the captured hostages who were rescued later said that “the terrorists groups were focusing on Britons and Americans. In one incident one of the terrorists interrogated asking “where are you from” he said I am from Italy, that’s why he was not hurt by the terrorists.

security system of terrorists groups

One question which is bothering me is that aren’t there any security checks in the restaurants, especially these reputed 5-star like The Taj Mahal and Oberoi Hotels. The media and the Marine Commandos conference have been making several statements like. The terrorists groups were aware of every nook and corner of the Taj hotel. They studied the layout of the hotel carefully prior to executing the attack. They are carrying enough ammunitions and fire guns.Their tactic was very clear, their plan was well structured.

The point on which I am not clear is were they living in the hotel. Secondly, how come they were well aware of the structure of the The Taj Hotel if they were not living their before? Now that leaves me with one question. Was there any inside connections with The Taj staff.

I haven’t seen any of the news that states that the FBI is interrogating the staff to clear any possibility of any kind of connection between the Taj Workers and the terrorists groups. One thing I am very much clear on is that the terrorists attacks in Mumbai is fulfilling at least one motive of the terrorists groups is to get international media attention.
