Mumbai under terror attack

Mumbai under terror attack

Oh God. What is happening to India? What are these bloody terrorists up to? What on earth do they want? Damn these bastard killers.

Terrorists have attacked Mumbai besieging hotels with hostages, firing aimlessly firing at crowds in railway stations and hospitals. A highly planned onslaught by unknown terrorists, this could be the country’s worst attack ever. More than hundred, including 14 police personnel and civilians, have been reported killed in this tragic and most disastrous terror attack.

The nation’s financial capital looks dreadful with the ongoing attack. Even as the efforts to free the hostages and knock down the terrorists go on, and the nation mourns the death of 101 people, our respected Home Minister Shri Shivraj Patil continues to make stupid statements like this

Before I could reach there, the terrorists who had attacked one of the hospitals, the Cama Hospital, had left and those who attacked the railway station had also left.

The Union Home Minister considers this attack as ‘an act of cowardice’. Wonder how and why we have allowed such great brains stay in one of the country’s most respectable and responsible positions. A group of people, armed with destructive weapons, storm into public places like hotels, railway stations and hospitals only to fire at anyone visible–what kind of cowardice act is this?

Bomb blasts and serial killings have been part of life in India. But this attack calls for a serious thinking on the government’s and intelligences’ part. When will the nation be saved from such terrible attacks?
