Bomb Blast And Terrorist Firing In Mumbai

by Seema Upadhyay (writer), Mumbai, November 26, 2008

South Mumbai attacked by terrorist, 60 killed and 200 injured

Mumbai city is under terrorist attack, yes once more, there were total 12 blasts in different areas in South Mumbai and firing at 5 places. Two five star hotels, Taj and Oberoi have been attacked.

5 terrorists are still inside Taj Hotel room no.631, there were total 4 blasts in Taj hotel and 2 in Oberoi. The police and the commandos have surrounded both the hotels and around 200 more NSG commandos are immediately called.

2 blasts happened inside a cab in 2 different areas. One below the flyover in Vile Parle near the domestic airport and another in Mazgaon area. One blast happened outside the assembly house; where as few terrorists threw grenades from the terrace of a building in Colaba.

The Police has so far succeeded in killing 2 terrorists and two have been nabbed. 2 policemen were killed in the crossfiring near Girgaum whereas 6o civilians lost their lives in the blasts today.

Maharashtra, Delhi and Gujarat states have been declared on high alert. 2 terrorist fled in a police van no. MH-01, BA-5179, which was parked near Metro cinema.

There are lot of civilians who are still trapped in the basement of Taj and Oberoi Hotel including a friend of mine as I type this story.

Its high time all the nations unitie together and fight terrorists and the barbarian act of killing innocents.

Thanks everyone. My Doctor friend and his family who were attending a wedding in Taj Mahal hotel were rescued today in the morning at 9 am. My  friends n I  were co-ordinating with a news channel and the cops, till the wee hours in the morning, trying to help in the rescue operations. Though our friends are rescued, others have not been so lucky.All the terrorists were youngesters in their early twenties. What a waste of human life? This world is no longer safe, what future are we going to give to our children. Whether its India, UK, US or Iraq. its the same everyone. The Mujahideens in their e-mail said that they want to teach Indian Goverenment a lesson for ill- treating muslims in India and the this act of terrorism is carried out in the name of Allah.

No religion teaches violence, the people like Osamaand others responsible for spreading terrorism and brain washing the young minds should be condemned and bought to justice. This is the time for all the nations in the world to unite and fight terrorism together.

Thank you for reporting on this first hand. What a horrible experience this must have been, and hearing about it from someone on here makes you realize how small the world really is. Just because it didn't happen in the U.S., doesn't mean we shouldn't care. My thoughts and prayers are with you now.
