The mastermind of the 26/11 terror attack on Mumbai is still safe and sound

Foreign Minister Dr S. Jaishankar presented his stand at the United Nations Security Council in Mumbai

Mumbai –  When it comes to deterring certain terrorists, the UN Security Council is unable to act due to political reasons. This is extremely disturbing. The masterminds that had planned the terrorist attack in Mumbai on 26th November 2008 are still safe and sound. They have not yet been punished to date. Foreign Minister Dr S. Jaishankar raised the above points sternly in the United Nations Security Council meeting.

1. An important meeting of the United Nations Security Council was held at the Taj Mahal Hotel in Mumbai to decide the next strategy in the fight against terrorism. This 2-day meeting which started on the 28th of October is being hosted by India.

2. Before this meeting, the international members present paid tribute to the people who had died in the terrorist attacks of 26/11. On the 26th of November 2008, 10 terrorists of the Lashkar-e-Taiba, a terrorist organization in Pakistan, attacked Mumbai. 166 civilians were killed in this attack.

3. While addressing the gathering Dr S. Jaishankar mentioned, “We all know that money is the sustaining source of terrorism. Terrorist organisations need money and weapons to carry out terrorist activities. Due to this, terrorism continues to this day and spreading rapidly.  These rapidly expanding terrorists are being well-funded.

Editorial viewpoint

Terrorist activities by Pakistan have not stopped despite India constantly raising its voice in the United Nations. Therefore, instead of depending on others, India should be self-reliant and prevent terrorist activities by itself !
