The first blast took place at 6:50 pm and there was a series of three blasts till 7 pm at Zaveri Bazaar, Opera House and Dadar. These blasts were the first major attack after on Mumbai after November 2008 when the city was left stranded for 60 hours by 10 terrorists. There have been rumours that the blasts were planned to celebrate birthday of Kasab on 13th July, the only terrorist who survived after the November attacks.
A lot of things have been said about the terrorists attacks and everytime we become a victim of these things, but we fail to stop these kind of activities.
Mumbai is defined as resilient. Are Mumbaikars actually resiliant, or they have no chance and live their life this way. What the government should do? So, this is what was written on twitter by different celebrities:
Dia Mirza: “Mumbai moves on not because it is resilient, but because Mumbai has no choice. Everyone HAS to go back to WORK.”
Priyanka Chopra: ‘I’m so saddened by what’s happened in Mumbai.. My heart wrenches at the thought of what the families of the victims are going through..it’s so wrong. Why do we have to always accept this terrorism..Why are we always told to move on? I Won’t stand for terror anymore and I will not forget!”
Shekhar Kapur: “Before Mumbai turns into Baghdad Kabul and Lahore, before Taliban see India as easy target & send suicide squads, India needs firm leadership. Time for political leaders to stop squabbling and address serious issues like lives of citizens. If attacks provoked from outside India, we need to take the battle to them. If from inside India then we need to destroy those that support them.”
Arbaaz Khan: “Another dastardly and cowardice act by the terrorist to take innocent lives and disrupt the calm and peace of Mumbai, this mayhem has to stop. Terrorism needs to be dealt with an iron hand. To snuff its existence the government has to take extreme measures and zero tolerance. Killing of one innocent is like killing all of humanity. Terrorist are not humans. Acts of terrorism are not human errors.”
Amitabh Bachchan: “The bombs did not just drop from the skies! A human, like one of us put it. One of us who breathed and lived in Indian air. Get him!”
Shobhaa De: “Stop irresponsible reporting! Stop rumour mongering! Mumbai is reeling yet again. Star anchors, keep OUT !Don't endanger lives. Where is the CM? Ambulance chasing TV journos show more sensitivity! This isn't about TRPs and breaking news. Mumbai is bleeding! People are dead. Have some shame!”
Vir das: “Cynicism during adversity is easy & available. Optimism takes courage. Want to help? Donate, volunteer, spread info. Stop sermonising.”
Bipasha Basu: “We keep condemning acts of terrorism and that's where the story ends everytime and repeats again! It’s a shame!”
Preity Zinta: “I hope we as Indians & people of the world collectively fight terrorism & make sure this does not happen in our neighbourhood or backyard again! May god give peace to the souls of the departed and strength to the people who have been left behind in grief!”
Shah Rukh Khan: “En route India and Mumbai...I am devastated and saddened by the loss in my city. May Allah bless us..want to be there as quickly as possible.”
