Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday remembered the victims of 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks on its ninth anniversary and said terrorism has become a threat on humanity and global burden.
“We salute all those brave women and men who lost their lives in the gruesome 26/11 attacks in Mumbai. Terrorism has become a global burden,” Modi said in his monthly radio programme “Mann Ki Baat”.
He said India has been raising the issue of terror for the last four decades in the global platforms.
“Initially, the world did not take us seriously but now the world is realising the destructive aspects of terrorism,” he said.
“The whole world needs to come together to be able to defeat this threat on humanity,” the Prime Minister added.
Over 160 people were killed and more than 300 injured when the terrorists of Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba launched a series of attacks on India’s commercial capital on November 26, 2008.
