Friday marked the 13th anniversary of the terrorist attacks that were carried out in Mumbai on November 26, 2008. Considered among the deadliest terror strikes in India ever, they were carried out by Pakistan-based terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba.

A total of 10 Lashkar terrorists carried out multiple shooting and bombing attacks across Mumbai in an episode that lasted four days.

India and several other countries including the US, the UK and France have repeatedly asked Pakistan to bring the perpetrators of the 26/11 attacks to justice, but no such firm initiative has been taken yet by Islamabad.

Jamaat-ud-Dawa and Lashkar chief Hafiz Saeed continues to run his organisation and carry out anti-India activities. India has shared detailed evidence with Pakistan on a number of occasions, but Islamabad has refused to cooperate in the case.
