Attack in Mumbai
Face and the way they were driving van, they were very much familiar with Indian roads, they look south Indian, so very much possible Deccan Sula.
So what are forumites opinion on this? This attack was not just on the aam aadmi. This attack was on the rich and elite in India. Can we expect a response other than the usual '<insert a city> will persevere'?

He thought that tin pot could protect him. Good riddance to UPA stooge that tortures women.
Total 9-10 groups of terrorist module, they attack CST railway station, it means target were common people. Cama Hospital, it means women and Children, again common people. They fired randomly openly on crowd , again common people. They target Nariman House, it means Jews were target. Oberoi where British MP and other people were staying. Taj, Ramada and Oberoi hotel they asked for British and Americans.
All these tells they are muslim and with international agenda, targets were Hindus, Jews and Westerners.

bhupen chaubey asking the reporter outside if any actor/celebreties was in the hotel, how many gunshots were heard, how many security personnel going in?

Media is like its government, empty.
<b>78 Die in Mumbai Shootings, Officials Say</b> <!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->I was in the main lobby and there was all of a sudden a lot of firing outside," said Sajjad Karim, <b>part of a delegation of European lawmakers visiting Mumbai ahead of a forthcoming EU-India summit.</b> He turned to get away "and all of a sudden another gunmen appeared in front of us, carrying machine gun-type weapons. And he just started firing at us ... I just turned and ran in the opposite direction," he told The Associated Press over his mobile phone.

India has been wracked by deadly bomb attacks in recent years, which police blame on <b>Muslim militants intent on destabilizing this largely Hindu country</b>. Since October 2005, nearly 700 people have died in the bombings. And since May a militant group calling itself the Indian Mujahideen had taken credit for a string of blasts that have killed more than 130.
The most recent was in September when a series of explosions struck a park and crowded shopping areas in the capital, New Delhi, killing 21 people and wounding about 100 others.<!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->

<b>Tendulkar, Dhoni say no to series in Pakistan</b>

LAHORE - The Indian team tour of Pakistan this coming January is growing more and more uncertain with reports suggesting that some of the senior members of the Indian team are not willing to take up the tour.

According to the an Indian news agency, top Indian players including captain MS Dhoni and Sachin Tendulkar have said that they are unwilling to tour Pakistan.

When contacted a PCB official said that its too early to say. "The PCB chairman will be meeting the Indian officials and then there would be final decision. It is not confirmed as yet about the Indian players concern because none of the players has said and the reports have quoted sources," the PCB official added.

<b>The Indian news agency further reported to have learnt that India's senior players are unwilling to go in January for their scheduled three-Test and five-ODI series.</b>

Dhoni, Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Virender Sehwag and Harbhajan Singh have all expressed their unwillingness to go to Pakistan.

The players believe that in spite of assurances from the PCB, the security threat in touring Pakistan is simply too great at the moment.

PCB chief Ijaz Butt is scheduled to tour India early next month to try and convince the BCCI but that plea is now likely to fall on deaf ears.

The agency also report earlier that the Ministry of External Affairs is also unlikely to clear the tour.

Pakistan's foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi is in Delhi with the message that Pakistan wants more cricketing and diplomatic ties with India.

Virtually snubbing Pakistan's interior secretary, Qureshi said Pakistan wanted more people to people contacts with India and welcomed Dhoni's boys and other Indians to Pakistan.

Interior secretary Kamal Shah had said on Tuesday that diplomatic ties with India could be affected if New Delhi cancelled the January cricket tour.

The PCB has assured full security for the team, but the Ministry of External Affairs is uncomfortable with the high security risk. A final decision is expected in two weeks.

As the uncertainty prevails over India's cricket tour of strife-torn Pakistan, Qureshi said the Mahendra Singh Dhoni and his men were welcome to his country. The Pakistan Minister said he favoured greater people-to-people contacts between the two countries.

The Indian cricket tour of Pakistan in January appeared to be in trouble, with the government here being apprehensive on account of security of the team.

The final decision on the tour, scheduled from January 6 to February 19, will be taken after an assessment of the situation in Pakistan by a high-level team of officials.

<b>The risk in undertaking the tour is high considering the prevailing security situation in Pakistan and "no sensible government" would take it, sources had said citing the recent terror attack on a national sporting event in Peshawar to cite the example of the security situation in Pakistan</b>

Comments : At least the Indian Cricketers have responded to the latest Islamic Terrorism in Mumbai

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin-->'You don't feel safe'
Nick Chamie, head of emerging markets research at RBC Capital Markets, said that although India is somewhat used to attacks, any rise in political instability could further weigh on its market and economy.
"Generally, politics have never been a factor of strength for India. But that would add to the headwinds that the Indian market and the economy will face, that's for sure," Chamie added. <b>"With the elections not due until next year, there's already some degree of paralysis about the economy right now."</b>

India's sensitive index, or Sensex, rallied Wednesday, gaining 3.8% to 9,026.72. But the benchmark has lost about half its value so far this year, as investors pulled their money out of emerging markets around the globe.
Rob Lutts, the chief investment officer of Cabot Money Management, a Salem, Mass.-based independent wealth-management firm, said that to get money flowing <b>back to India, investors need to feel the country is a safe place to invest. A spate of terror attacks show that it is not.</b>

"Security is lacking, infrastructure is lacking," Lutts said. "The way to monitor and prevent these [attacks] is not there."To be sure, Lutts said the market's reaction to the latest round of attacks will likely be limited. As the global credit crisis and economic downturn takes its toll on emerging markets, negative developments to some degree are already priced into current levels.
"When bad news occurs when valuations are already so low, it doesn't have much of an impact," he said.

In the longer term, India needs to improve conditions for capital investment to expand wealth and inspire more confidence in projects in the country, he said, adding that "I do believe that will happen over time" as the global recession wanes.
But for now, he commented, <b>"You don't feel safe there and your capital doesn't feel safe, either." </b>End of Story
European parliament member fled Taj, whereabouts unknown
Conservative member of the European parliament Sajjad Karim, who was one of two MEPs caught up in the terror attacks in Mumbai, reportedly escaped from the Taj Hotel but his whereabouts are not known.
The other MEP involved in the attacks was Erika Mann, a German Socialist.
Karim and Mann were part of a European parliamentarians' delegation from the trade committee.
They were staying in the Mumbai hotel for meetings ahead of an European Union/India summit.
Karim, 38, spoke to Sky News of his ordeal and attempts to hide from the assassins in the basement of the hotel until his mobile phone battery ran out.
Mann, 57, was reportedly hiding in the hotel's kitchens from where she told a concerned colleague who called her: 'It is too dangerous to talk.'
Speaking to Sky News over phone, Karim said he and others had fled from machine-gun fire and had no idea why the hotel was targeted.
"I was in the lobby when gunmen came in and people started running.
There were about 25 or 30 of us. A gunman stood just there, right next to me, spraying bullets around.
"I managed to run into the hotel kitchen and then we were shunted into a restaurant in the basement. We were in the dark now as we had barricaded all the doors. It was really bad."
Initially, terrorist came wearing mask and started firing towards crowd.
