Reflecting on Resilience,15 Years Since the 26/11 Mumbai Terror Attacks.

It has been 15 years since the harrowing terrorist attacks that unfolded in Mumbai on November 26, 2008, commonly known as 26/11. Coordinated by 10 terrorists from the Lashkar-e-Taiba group, the attacks left an indelible mark on India’s financial capital. The terrorists strategically targeted iconic locations, including the Taj and Oberoi Hotels, Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus, Nariman House, and Leopold Cafe, resulting in the loss of 166 lives and injuring 300.

The scars of this tragic event persist in the collective memory of those who witnessed it. Notably, this year marks the 15th anniversary, prompting Israel to officially designate Lashkar-e-Taiba as a terror organization. The decision, made independently without a formal request from the Indian government, underscores the ongoing global battle against terrorism. Israel’s Ambassador to India, Naor Gilon, hailed the move as the “right thing,” emphasizing the importance of a unified global front in combating terrorism.

The commemoration extends beyond official actions, with a poster exhibition held at the Broken Chair in front of the United Nations, Geneva. This exhibition serves as a poignant reminder of the barbaric attacks that shook Mumbai, highlighting the sacrifices of both civilians and security forces. As the nation observes this solemn day, it stands in remembrance of those who lost their lives while bravely confronting the terrorists.
