TERROR, chaos, mayhem gripped Mumbai Metropolis as a handful of terrorist cowardly took the lives of innocent and helpless people who have nothing to do with them, yet they have been targeted by these cowards. I don’t understand what they achieve by doing this and what is the purpose of such killings? Those who lost their lives have gone, but their near and dear ones will be missing them for the rest of their lives, wondering why they were targeted?
The tourists and foreigners who were staying in the hotels came to enjoy life see the city and the country. They never thought that they are exposed to dangers and they will be blown in to pieces by the bombs or killed by the assault rifles. And, the terrorists who have done this, act like hyenas and they live a proverbial “dog’s life’ because they too get killed and die like one or may be worst. Because, a dog is remembered whereas they are not.
No religion preaches terrorism and extremism and those who practice terrorism and take lives of others on their own earn are neither Muslims, nor Hindus, Christians or Jews because none of these religions tolerate terrorism and they all condemn terrorism or taking lives of others such monsters do not earn any respect or support from the society.
During the IPL three bombs rocked the city of Jaipur. Two months months ago it was in Islamabad, the Marriott Hotel was rocked scores of people died. Almost a month ago three bombs rocked New Delhi more than 20 people died today it is Taj and Oberoi Hotels in Mumbai and several other locations like train station in Mumbai was targeted and the purpose is to disturb peace and create chaos. More than 80 people died and 250 injured. The numbers of dead and injured is reportedly increasing and in the hospitals its a war like situation.
The Marriott Hotel in Islamabad, is only a kilometer away from my family house and when the blast took place, all the glass doors and windows of our house were shattered. A few years ago I have stayed in both these hotels, Taj and Oberoi in Mumbai. I still remember the reception area, the lobby, the rooms, the poolside area. When I think of all that I feel very disturbed about how these people who were staying in the hotels, the staff that was working must have been running for their lives when the bombs exploded and when these hyenas were chasing them, attacking them and killing them for no reason. What a shame, what a black day in the history of mankind, that man is the worst enemy of mankind.
On behalf of LS management I extended my deepest condolences not only to all the Indian bloggers, but also to the people of India, especially for those, whose loved ones have lost their lives and, for the likes of the chief of Anti Terrorist Squad Hemant Karkare and two senior police officials who gave their lives in the pursuit of rescuing the hostages and many others who lost their lives, may God bless them and give their families to bear the irreparable loss.
And, I would ask you ALL to pray and, myself I’ll pray for the safety and wellbeing for the 200 odd hostages that are being held by these hyenas that they are released from them unharmed. Ameen.
