NEW DELHI: 13 years have passed since the deadly 26/11 attacks which took place in Mumbai, Maharashtra. Pakistan as a nation has not shown the sincerity to deliver justice to people who died. 

10 members of the Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), a jihadist outfit based in Pakistan, carried out 12 coordinated attacks lasting as many as four days in the city. 

166 people from 15 countries were killed in the attacks at the iconic Taj Mahal Palace hotel, the Nariman House, the Metro Cinema, and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus during that period.

 November 2008 Mumbai attacks, also referred to as 26/11 attacks, prompted the centre to heighten its counter-terrorism operations and check ties with Pakistan.

Ajmal Kasab, terrorist who was captured by the security forces, confirmed the assault was planned, coordinated, and conducted by the LeT.

Ajmal Kasab, David Headley, and Zabiuddin Ansari revealed during the interrogation about Pakistan's state-sponsored terrorism in the 26/11 attacks.

Pakistani court freed six terrorists, including the ones mentored by Hafiz Saeed.

Saeed is regarded as the mastermind of the deadly attacks and he is a United Nations designated terrorist who is the founder of the LeT outfit and its charity wing, the Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD).

Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, LeT commander and ringleader of the 2008 Mumbai attacks, is out on bail since 2015. He is also an UN-designated terrorist.
