The NSG troops took around 60 hours to flush out all the terrorists from the three targeted paces - Taj, Oberoi and Nariman. Well trained militants smuggled into India through sea way. The nation witnessed the drastic attack in which many civilians including foreigners have lost their life.

The cross border terrorism was the prime cause and repealing of POTA could be a set back in tacking the terrorism. In India always reports of intelligence failure reported always after any major incident of terrorist attack. No doubt that Mumbai attack was the biggest ever attack in India, but can the nation forget the attack on its sovereignty, Parliament attack and Ayodhya attack.

This is not the first time that bomb blasts and terror activities are seen in India. Here are some major attacks in India:
  • 29 October 2005 Delhi bombings : Three explosions went off in the Indian capital of New Delhi on October 29, 2005 (two days before the Hindu festival of Diwali) which killed more than 60 people and injured at least 200 others. The high number of casualties made the bombings the deadliest attack in India of 2005.It was followed by 5 bomb blasts on 13th September 2008.
  • 11 July, 2006 Mumbai Blasts in Local Trains: More than 180 people are killed in seven bomb explosions at railway stations and on trains in Mumbai that are blamed on Islamist militants.
  • 18 May, 2007 Hyderabad Blast: A bomb explodes during Friday prayers at a historic mosque in the southern city of Hyderabad, killing 11 worshippers. Police later shoot dead five people in clashes with hundreds of enraged Muslims who protest against the attack. Three coordinated explosions at an amusement park and a street stall in Hyderabad kill at least 40 people on 25 Aug, 2007.
  • Jaipur Blasts on 13 May, 2008: in which 63 people were killed in seven blasts.
  • Bangalore Blast on 25 July and Ahmedabad blasts 26July.
  • Delhi Blasts on 13 September killed around 18 people.
  • Mumbai Blasts and Attacks on 26 November more than 100 people killed and many injured. The ever biggest attack in Mumbai.
The list will much more and more. Listing of all the incidents would be a solution but the proper and hard provision is required to stop terrorism in India and let the people live peaceful life. (All the information are based on media reports.)
