Jaipur: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday said that India will never forget the dastardly 26/11 Mumbai terror attack or its perpetrators and is looking for an opportunity to bring them to justice.
Addressing an election rally in Rajasthan’s Bhilwara on the tenth anniversary of the 26/11 terror attack, the prime minister assured people that the law will take its own course.
On November 26, 2008, 10 Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorists had sailed into Mumbai from Karachi and carried out coordinated attacks, killing 166 and injuring over 300.
Nine of the attackers were killed by the police while lone survivor Ajmal Kasab was captured and hanged after he was sentenced to death.
“India will never forget 26/11 or its perpetrators. We are looking for an opportunity… The law will take its own course, I assure the people of the country,” Modi said.
“Justice will surely be done,” he added while expressing solidarity with the families of those who lost their lives.
He added that a grateful nation bowed to its brave police and security forces who had valiantly fought the terrorists during the Mumbai attacks.
PM Modi also said that the Congress was in power when the Mumbai terror attacks took place but questioned the BJP government’s surgical strikes in Pakistan.
Hitting out at the Congress, the prime minister said the party doubted his government’s surgical strikes, conducted in September 2016. But will commandos carry cameras to provide proof, he asked.
Modi said his government had responded to terrorists and Naxals in their own language.
