    Thumbs up Birds Sing After A Storm, Why Shouldn't We?-After The Mumbai Terrorist Atacks

    Even many days after the Mumbai attack which shocked the whole India, many people are still under stress. The terrorist attacks in Mumbai have given a red alert to the security of people in India. Still, we cannot completely blame the Government and other authorities. In those days, we had come to know how important the security guards of our country are for us. The brave NSG commandos and the other security personnels risked their lives to save our lives.
    According to the captured terrorist, the terrorists didn’t think that the commandos would reach the spot that much quickly. They had planned to kill 5000 people and completely destroy the Taj. But, their all plans went in vain as the commandos entered the game of life and death. The captured terrorist said that they knew that the security personnels in the Railway Station were unarmed. They had decided to directly attack them, because they thought that the Police would run away as they see the terrorists firing at them with AK-47. :33: But, on the contrary, it was the terrorists who ran. The Policemen, unarmed, charged onto the terrorists with their lathis and this was something unexpected for the terrorists.
    As the first footages of the attack in the Railway Station were revealed, the braveness of the Policemen can be clearly seen-they didn’t withdraw even when the terrorists where continually firing at them. I had seen the footages on NDTV when they were first released.
    This attack was one, which we Indians had only seen in the movies – the terrorists striking with a bang, unexpectedly, and the brave security personnels of our country becoming the saviors of our country.
    Anyway, it has all passed, and we had had only losses. So, let’s hope for a new tomorrow, when we all shall be saying to our future, “Our country was caught up in a mayhem in the year 2008, when our brave soldiers risked and dedicated their lives for our country. That was the incident after which our country became so strong and united.”
    It is all over and let us hope that anything like this will never happen again. It’s time for us to forget everything and start building a new tomorrow.

    I also saw those policemen with lathis... Though it was the bravest attempt on Mumbai Police part... It was a shame that they were not equipped with sophisticated weapons... Indian Police needs major upliftment... Lathis were good in British era... Which were normally used to crush Mahatma Gandhi's Ahinsawaadi followers... Now is the time for deadly guns...

    Lets hope that this attack would be an eye-opener for the government... Else be ready for an attack of much larger magnitude!

    Surely its going to be. If not, we have some good citizen who are now aware of all these things (including us), who shall react severely.

    Yes. Its time for us to stop complaining and if one still can't, he would have to just look back some days and I am sure that if the one is a true Indian, will stop shouting complaints and start shouting "VANDE MATARAM"!

    Even as pressure is mounting in on the Pakistan authorities, Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari has rejected India’s demand to hand over Lashkar-e-Taiba chief Hafiz Mohd Sayeed and others, who together made up a list containing names of 20 Most Wanted Criminals. The Most Wanted list also included underworld don Dawood Ibrahim and Jaish-e-Mohammad chief Masood Azhar.

    I also have another thing to add to your account. I don’t know whether you’ve already came to know about this. Indian investigation agencies have no presence or assets in Pakistan. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is helping India to pick up leads in Pakistan. As you might know, the Scotland Yard are also assisting India.

    According to the sources, the Americans have access to several critical databases inside Pakistan. So, we can all hope for something new, maybe tomorrow itself.

    Here is a quote from the front page of today’s “The Hindu” :

    [ “Someone’s backside is going to be kicked very hard tomorrow in Pakistan”, said sources, adding that the US had been able to obtain all intercepts of the conversation between the terrorists and their handlers.]


    Now, its time for us to get ready for it…………………………………………
    Let’s wait and see what’s going to happen…………………………………………………

    A good article.

    I am not sure if US is really going to help us. If past is any indication, its double-edged sword. And watever they do is purely for their benefit.

    Its really is really sad that even thought who know who is guilty(pak) we never take any tough action against them. We remain a silent spectator.

    I'm sure its not because of the "we love all races/religions" kinda stuff, its because "why should we go for an unnecessary war", "wat will be the international reaction to our activities" kinda attitude of our politicians.

    I can't completely agree to your that view. Your words have a tone saying that we should be going at war against Pakistan. Actually, India has a very famous culture and reputation in the whole world. So, we can't just go into war like that.
    Our officials are saying that strict decisions will be taken if Pakistan doesn't agree to cooperate.

    Agree with most of the article except this one. The quote I like to
    mention here is

    "people who forget the past are condemned to repeat it"

    Yes, what you said is right. I agree with you. My view of the point while writing the article was different. I hope you understood what I meant.

    Very true , but are we to maintain our reputation at the cost of the lives of our fellow citizens. Does reputation mean anyting at all in today's world ?

    And at a time when countries have wars simply to pursue their own interests (us , uk on iraq) , is it wrong that we have war esp. when we know WITH EVIDENCE that they(pak) have been plotting against us for decades.

    Please note that it is not yet 'completely' clear that Pakistan has had a hand. Here is what Zardari said :
    "Pakistan is not behind the attacks in Mumbai. It is true that there were several fights between India and Pakistan. But, they all happened when Pakistan was under dictatorship. But now, we are a democracy and democracies don't get into war with each other."

    Can we really believe this statement?
    We have to just wait and see......
    Anyway, everything's going to come out soon......

    Please be aware that the news that is telecast is not all true ....
    Myth Busters

    -->India handed a list containing key Laskher operatives [less than 5] to be returned to India .... The list was not 'The 20 most wanted criminals' and also did not include Dawood Ibrahim
    -->India is not amassing troops on the Indo-Pak Border ...
    -->Pranab M did not threaten Pak over the phone

    Indian Intelligence say that these myths are being spread by ISI to escalate
    Tensions between India and Pak ...

    so Pak can redirect its forces who are [being forced] to fight terrorists in the tribal belt [by US pressure] towards the Indo Pak Border in the pretex of War ...

    sometimes their benefit can be our benefit too ....... India should make use of America's [coerced] Influence over Pak to get its way.....

    You have nt been thinking from all Angles ...... If India Goes to war with pakistan , then India will be categorized along with America and will have to face all the ire of the international community ......
    And have you thought about the fact that India if it goes to war , will have to face the anger of nations like Iran and palestine, which till now have been friends with India ...

    Do you know that Hezbollah has denounced the Mumbai attacks ?

    We should not make enemies where we can find friends [does not apply to Hezbollah ofcourse , but its good not to have them as enemies]

    There is more than reputation at stake here ! !
    In today's globalized it pays to keep your relations with other countries intact ... India is very far from being self sufficient .....

    And at a time when countries have wars simply to pursue their own interests (us , uk on iraq) , is it wrong that we have war esp. when we know WITH EVIDENCE that they(pak) have been plotting against us for decades.
    Just because the US made a mistake , does that mean we should also make the same mistake ?

    India Morally condemned America during Afghanistan/Iraq war after 9/11 .... would it not be shameful if india now resorts to war after 26/11 ??

    Pakistan as an establishment is not responsible for the attacks ... This even the Indian Intelligence recognizes ....... There are Rogue elements within their army and ISI which is doing it ..... The new govt does not support terror against India .... but it is unstable and is powerless to do anything to help India ....

    Just because terrorists were hiding inside Iraq , Americans killed scores of innocent Iraqi civilians ..... So we cannot do the same thing to innocent Pak civilians .... ours is a responsible nation

    Yes Zardari's statements say it all

    -->The New govt is not Anti-Indian .
    -->But it is too unstable to help india
    -->There are still remnants of Anti-Indian People inside Pak army and intelligence , but they r hard to identify ...

    So should we sacrifice the lives of our innocent Indian people , so we do not fight pak ??

    Ofcourse not!

    After 9/11 Terrorists were unable to mount a single attack on America ... many attempts were foiled ..... Thats how we should protect our citizens ! .... By Putting in place a Proper security structure
