Mumbai 26/11: A Day of Infamy

B Raman (Author)
Mumbai 26/11 saw a mix of commando-style attacks typical of the special forces of an army and indiscriminate killing of civilians typical of the Lashkar-e-Toiba (LeT), the Pakistani Jihadi Organization. The meticulous planning, the thorough training of the 10 LeT terrorists, who carried it out, and the close co-ordination of the attacks from the command and control of the LeT had the stamp of Al Qaeda and Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence, both of which the LeT has a close relationship with.

The LeT terrorists attacked a mix of targets--innocent Indian civilians in public places, Jewish people in a religious-cum-cultural centre and members of the Indian and foreign social and business elite in two five star hotels. The attacks on the Jewish centre and the hotels lasted over 60 hours and were continuously telecast live by TV Channels. 

The success of the terrorists attacks, mounted from the sea, highlighted once again the serious deficiencies in India's national security apparatus and the role of Pakistan in the spread of terrorism across the world. Have we drawn the right lessons in respect of both? Can the Indian people now expect at least a more robust counter-terrorism policy to prevent another 26/11?
