Open Letter to Our Dear Brothers in Pakistan

Sunday 12 December 2010, by Shree Shankar Sharan



On the second anniversary of the 26/11 terror attacks in Mumbai we remember the martyrs of those refarious assaults and reproduce the following piece that appeared in Mainstream (December 6, 2008) since it embodied one of the rare voices of sanity raised in this country following the 60-hour trauma India’s
commercial capital had to experience from November 26 to 29, 2008.

Our dear brothers in Pakistan,

In the intense grief that I am in due to the mindless raid and killings in the Taj and Oberoi Trident hotels which visitors from Pakistan or in undivided India would vividly remember, Nariman House, Leopold Cafe, the Victoria Terminus and Chowpatty which cost nearly 200 lives and many more injuries, I write with utter disbelief and shock that such a thing should have been the handiwork of any of the good people of Pakistan.
