Condemning 'Islamist' terrorist attack on Mumbai in harshest terms

Condemning "Islamist" terrorist attack on Mumbai in harshest terms




New Delhi, Nov 27: Even as the siege of India’s financial capital continued, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh delivered his strongest message yet about his government’s intention to crack down on the enemies of India.


Addressing the nation on the morbid occasion he sought to give an impression of the government and security agencies being in control of the situation. While condemning the assault in most severe terms, he assured Indian citizens that all possible measures would be taken against the perpetrators of this outrage.


Hinting for the first time that India might be contemplating hot pursuit, the Prime Minister said that his government “will go after perpetrators” of the attacks all the way.


On the issue of more stringent laws, a demand that has been raised time and again especially by the opposition, the PM said current laws will be tightened as per the need. The PM said that National Security Act would be enforced so that the terrorists cannot escape.


He also addressed another long standing demand of setting up a Federal Agency to tackle terror saying that such an organisation would be established. He also said police reforms would be initiated.


“We cannot countenance a situation in which the safety and security of our citizens can be violated with such impunity,” he said firmly.


Sending out a clear signal that the government believed this strike to be the handiwork of foreign nationals, the Prime Minister warned neighbours that they would not be allowed to use their territory for anti-India activities. He also promised to take up the issue with the highest authorities of such countries, promising that there would be a cost if suitable measures are not taken by them.


"It is evident that the group which carried out these attacks, based outside the country, had come with the single-minded determination to create havoc in the commercial capital of the country."


He said the "well-planned and well-orchestrated attacks, probably with external linkages, were intended to create a sense of panic by choosing high profile targets and indiscriminately killing foreigners."


The PM also promised to bring in a tighter visa regime saying no suspicious element will be allowed to set foot into the country.


He also ‘saluted’ and condoled the death of those killed in action so far, including ATS chief Hemant Karkare. The PM said that the government would compensate those killed and injured in the attack and would bear the full medical expenses of their treatment.


The grave looking PM concluded by calling on all citizens to remain united and maintain peace and harmony in this trying time.

TEXT - Prime Minister's statement on Mumbai attack

Thu Nov 27, 2008 6:13pm IST


NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said on Thursday that the attacks in Mumbai which killed more than 100 people were probably plotted by a group based in a neighbouring country.


Following is a text of his televised address:


"The dastardly terror attacks that took place in Mumbai last night and today leading to the loss of many precious lives and injuries to many others have deeply shocked the nation.


"I strongly condemn these acts of senseless violence against innocent people, including guests from foreign countries.


"I offer my deepest condolences to the bereaved families and sympathies to those injured. The Government will take all necessary measures to look after the wellbeing of the affected families, including medical treatment of injured.


"The well-planned and well-orchestrated attacks, probably with external linkages, were intended to create a sense of panic, by choosing high profile targets and indiscriminately killing foreigners.


"I salute the courage and patriotism of the police officers, including the Chief of the Anti-Terror Squad, Shri (Mr.) Hemant Karkare and men who have laid down their lives in fighting these terrorists.


"I assure the country that we will attend in an urgent and serious manner to police reform so that the law and order authorities can work unitedly, effectively and in a determined manner to tackle such threats to national integrity.


"We are not prepared to countenance a situation in which the safety and security of our citizens can be violated with impunity by terrorists. 


"It is evident that the group which carried out these attacks, based outside the country, had come with single-minded determination to create havoc in the commercial capital of the country.


"We will take the strongest possible measures to ensure that there is no repetition of such terrorist acts. We are determined to take whatever measures are necessary to ensure the safety and security of our citizens.


"Instruments like the National Security Act will be employed to deal with situations of this kind. Existing laws will be tightened to ensure that there are no loopholes available to terrorists to escape the clutches of the law.


"Most importantly, it is essential to immediately set up a Federal Investigation Agency to go into terrorist crimes of this kind and ensure that the guilty are brought to book.


"We will take up strongly with our neighbours that the use of their territory for launching attacks on us will not be tolerated, and that there would be a cost if suitable measures are not taken by them.


"We will take a number of measures to strengthen the hands of our police and intelligence authorities. We will curb the flow of funds to suspect organisations. We will restrict the entry of suspects into the country.


"We will go after these individuals and organisations and make sure that every perpetrator, organiser and supporter of terror, whatever his affiliation or religion may be, pays a heavy price for these cowardly and horrific acts against our people.


"In this hour of tragedy, I appeal to the people to maintain peace and harmony so that the enemies of our country do not succeed in their nefarious designs. All concerned authorities are on alert and will deal sternly with any attempts to disturb public order.


"I am confident that the people of India will rise unitedly to face this grave challenge to the nation's security and integrity.

This is a cowardly attack on our nation


Guwahati, 27 Nov: The barbaric attacks on luxury hotels, train station and eateries in the financial capital of India- Mumbai which claimed innocent lives on 26 – 27 November is an attack on our nation. It is a crises situation in our country and we all need to stand bravely united, said Maulana Badruddin Ajmal in a his press statement today.  Maulana Ajmal, president of Assam United Democratic Front (AUDF) and Markazul Ma'arif (NGO) expressed his anguish over the cowardice terror attacks and cautioned all political parties to restrain from blame-game politics at least till all the facts about the attacks are on the table.


 He offered his sincere condolence to all the families whose members were victims of the attacks and said 'nation would ever remain grateful for the heroic sacrifice of the three very senior Mumbai IPS officers' who lost their lives during combat operation. He said it is still not clear who the actual perpetrators are and what could have been their motives thus media and investigating agencies must not hurry to the conclusion. The terrorists whosoever they may be, they simply are our enemy and the nation demand severe punishment for their crimes, he said.


Maulana Ajmal requested the Mumbaikers to help maintain calm, law and order situation and he specially urged the youths to offer blood to the victims if needed.

New York - November 26, 2008 - Prominent Indian-American leaders condemn the coordinated terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India.


We, the undersigned Indian American activists and representatives, condemn the cowardly attacks unequivocally as crimes against humanity.


According to media reports gunmen have carried out a series of coordinated attacks across the Indian city of Mumbai (Bombay), killing more than 100 people and injuring around 300 more. At least seven high-profile locations were hit in India's financial capital, including two luxury hotels where dozens of hostages are being held. A previously unknown group calling itself Deccan Mujahideen has claimed the responsibility for the attack.


We express our deepest condolences to the families of the victims of these heinous attacks. Our thoughts and prayers are with the hostages especially those who were guests of India and were visiting from the US and UK. We stand in solidarity with the family of Anti Terrorism Squad Chief Hemant Karkare who was courageously heading the inquiry against the recent Malegaon bomb blasts in which Hindu supremacists including military officers and some religious leaders were implicated.


We appeal to all Indians to stay united and foil the evil designs of the terrorists whose main objective is to fan the flames of discord and hatred.  We urge the political parties not to exploit these terrorist acts for political purposes.


We are alarmed over the sophistication and military level planning seen in these coordinated attacks and on the failure of the intelligence agencies in preventing such a huge and widespread attack. We demand that the federal and state governments bring the perpetrators of these actions to justice swiftly.

The Muslim Brotherhood Condemns Terrorist Attacks in India


<IkhwanWeb - Egypt

<              <              <              <              <




<Wednesday, November 26, 2008

The MB strongly condemns the terrorist attacks in India, which killed and injured hundreds of innocent civilians. These despicable acts of terror are an attack on humanity in general, not against people from certain nationalities or civilization. We hope that perpetrators of these heinous be brought to justice to receive the ultimate punishment for their crimes.


We must also take this opportunity to remind the world of the suffering of the Palestinian people who are the victims of daily terror committed by Israel and sanctioned by the free world, by imposing inhumane siege against millions of civilians, including women and children.


We offer our condolences to the victims' families, and our prayers for world peace and stability
