SHOCKED, HEARTBROKEN, HELPLESS, ANGRY.   
Nov,27,2008
 

Have been watching television since yesterday and to see various locations in Mumbai turned into a war zone is shocking and heart breaking to say the least.

My heartfelt condolences to the families of persons killed and taken hostage. I was feeling sick in the stomach when the fire broke out at the Taj. What would the people caught inside be going through. The fire fighters were doing their best but my imagination was running wild and I was feeling helpless watching other people trapped in the rooms adjoining the fire.

My heartfelt condolences to the family of the brave officers of the Mumbai Police who lost their lives leading from the front to take on these terrorists. Especially Hemant Karkare of the ATS who in the recent past was being targeted by various political parties for the work that he was doing. When will these politicians realize and admit that terrorists HAVE NO RELIGION. Terrorists are not Hindu or Muslim or Christian. They are not people of religion or God. They are people who have gone totally sick in their head and have to be dealt with in that manner. Hemant Karkare is an example of a brave officer who gave his life in the line of duty.


At this moment I pray that the brave officers of the Mumbai Police, the Indian Army, Navy, the NSG and the various other security forces dealing with the situation are able to end this crisis as soon as possible.

If it had just been a matter of simply fighting the terrorists the security forces would have dealt with it sooner, but here of course the situation is extremely complicated with many innocent lives at stake. The fact that the locations are huge hotels with multiple floors, hundreds of rooms, many corridors, staff quarters, work spaces, entries, exits etc, and have innocent guests still in there, have made the task very difficult and delicate.

I dread to think of how various political parties are now going to try and use this tragedy to further their political careers. At least now they should learn to not divide people and instead become responsible leaders. An incident such as this really exposes how ill-equipped we are as a society as far as proper leaders go. We desperately need young, dynamic, honest, intelligent and upright leaders, who actually care for the country.

Faith.

Jai Hind.

Phil -
there are a bunch of extremist in Pakistan who think that only muslims have the right to live - *WHICH IS BULLSHIT*- and there are other people who believe that every individual whether muslim or not HAVE the right to live -

I personally do not know anyone who has a negative view about india - and I honestly mean it - We respect the bollywood industry - I do admit that indian cricket team is way much better than our Pakistani team , and other facts that India definitely is a progressing country.

I really think that we all should unite and fight against terrorism together - rather than blaming and pointing fingers at each other. Like Aamir said - " Terrorism have no religion " .

Again, I do feel sorry for what you guys went through - make God give you the strength to bear the loss.

kaiser,
im not anti-US.. i jus think that even they hav their share of blood n evil on their hands...
bfor u react on that, let me agree that US is the best available evil in the lot (which includes Russia,China, Muslim worlds) to be governing the world... they r just the best availble evil .... they r not perfect/spotless .....

trading routes thru afgan no doubts means hell lot money to the US. and the best part abt US getting rich is that this money slowly finds its way to many other progressive nations. even to our indian pockets.. cool enough, prosperity of the US means prosperity of the entire "non-muslim(exclude saudi)" developing world. thanks to globalisation. but ethically, just seems not right to invade some for the benefit of the rest ... n invading saudi? just not happening dude ...

Hi guys,
I was on my flight back home from New Zealand I left Auckland on the 28th and landed on the 30th. Throughout my journey people in the Aircraft and at the Transit airports gave me mixed reactions. some were angry some were sad some were symphatic but i was COLD!! i donno i really was COLD... Cos I am scared to be scared..!! I dont wanna think who did this who were behind it what when how where.. I simply cant see any out come!! no disscussion debates or wars have any solution.!! but i have HOPE and im gonna hang on to it. Just a shere HOPE.!!

Regards
Uttam

The catastrophic incident that happened in Mumbai indeed was horrible - I just want all my indian brothers know that I'm from Pakistan and I feel sad for what has happened.

Please not all pakistani's are alike - do not generalize, i hope the matter gets resolved and the situation between both countries calms down.
