Mumbai, 26th November 2021: On the evening of 26 November 2008, Mumbai was bustling as usual. The situation in the city was completely normal. People were shopping in the markets, some were enjoying the cool breeze coming from the sea as usual on Marine Drive. But as the night progressed, so did the screaming on the streets of Mumbai.

Pakistan-based terror group Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) had attacked with the cognisance of that country’s spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI).

That day 10 terrorists who came from Pakistan had stunned Mumbai with bomb blasts and firing. 13 years have passed since this terrorist attack, but this is that dark day in Indian history, which no one can forget even if they want to. More than 160 people were killed and over 300 more were injured in the terrorist attack.

Security forces caught a lone attacker named Ajmal Kasab who later confirmed that the entire planning of this attack was done by LeT and other terrorist organizations based in Pakistan. The country’s intelligence agencies found out through Kasab that all the attackers had come from Pakistan and the people controlling them were also working from there.

Ten years after the attack, former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, in a series of sensational revelations, also indicated that Islamabad played a role in the 2008 Mumbai attacks. Current evidence suggests that terrorists from Pakistan were involved in the 26/11 attacks, who are sheltered by Pakistan. This was proved during the interrogation of three terrorists – Ajmal Kasab, David Headley and Zabiuddin Ansari.

Even after sharing all the evidence by India, Pakistan has not yet shown sincerity in providing justice to the families of the victims even on the 13th anniversary of the 26/11 attacks. On 7 November, a Pakistani court freed six terrorists.

Lashkar-e-Taiba commander and 2008 Mumbai attacks mastermind Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi was also out on bail since 2015 after being arrested on terrorism financing charges by the country’s Anti-Terrorism Department (CTD) of Punjab province. Terrorist organizations in Pakistan also keep changing their names to avoid investigation and counterclaims, as the UN counter-terrorism organization has increased its surveillance.
