India paid homage to the victims of 26/11 Mumbai attack
NEW DELHI: on Saturday the third anniversary of the 26/11 attack, India reminded Pakistan it was still awaiting “decisive” action against perpetrators of the crime, and said evidence provided by it was sufficient to prosecute those behind the “inhuman act”.
External affairs minister S M Krishna also said that the use of terrorism as an instrument of state policy has no place in today’s world and is self destructive.
S M Krishna said, “We are still waiting for Pakistan to act decisively to bring to justice the perpetrators of the mindless violence that was unleashed on Mumbai. We are still waiting.”
He said the evidence given by the home ministry to Pakistan in the Mumbai terror attack case was sufficient for “any normal court” to prosecute the accused.
“I think the evidence provided by the ministry of home affairs would be sufficient for any normal civilian court to prosecute the people involved in the conspiracy and the perpetrators of this crime,” Krishna said.
Krishna also paid homage to the victims and martyrs of the terror attacks in Mumbai.
“I join my countrymen in paying respectful homage to the innocent men, women and children whose lives were most tragically snuffed out by the inhuman act of terrorism, inspired and carried out from across our borders, three year ago, on this day, in Mumbai,” he said.
“We also salute the courage and fortitude of the families who lost their loved ones in that senseless act of violence,” he said.
“It must be realised that use of terrorism as an instrument of state policy, has no place in today’s world and is self destructive,” Krishna said.
Krishna said issues have to be resolved through peaceful dialogue and in an atmosphere free from terror and violence.
