The Pakistani terrorists held Mumbai hostage for four days in one of India’s worst terror attacks, killing 166 and injuring 300 people.

The terror attacks on November 26 were carried out by the Pakistan-based terror group Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT), whose chief, Hafiz Saeed, has been designated a global terrorist by the United Nations. Pakistan’s government and army instead of punishing the mastermind of the deadly attacks provides protection to him.

The attack

On November 26, 2008, ten Pakistani terrorists arrived in Mumbai via sea route. They attacked various locations in Mumbai’s southern parts, including Nariman House, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Leopold Cafe, and grand hotels such as Taj Palace and Trident. Apart from opening fire in public and brutally killing scores, they also planted a bomb inside a taxi and drove it into Mumbai’s suburbs. The attacks claimed the lives of 166 people, including foreign nationals. Ajmal Kasab was apprehended alive by Mumbai police from a vehicle on Marine Drive, while all nine of his other accomplices were neutralized in a 60-hour-long operation.

The conspiracy to establish ‘Hindu terrorism’

Former Mumbai Commissioner of Police Rakesh Maria revealed in his book ‘Let Me Say It Now’ that terrorist Ajmal Kasab had an ID with a Hindu name on it during the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack. The name on Kasab’s ID was “Samir Chaudhary.” Maria was on control room duty on the day ten Pakistani terrorists carried out the attacks in Mumbai.
