Ratan Tata, the chairman of Tata sons, took to Twitter to pay a tribute to the fallen heroes of the 26/11 attacks in Mumbai.

Sharing an illustration of the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, one of the locations where the terror attacks had taken place, Tata stated that the day would never be forgotten. Moreover, he applauded the people of Mumbai who came together and put aside differences to "vanquish the terrorism and destruction that day".



The 2008 Mumbai attacks which are also referred to as 26/11 were a series of terrorist attacks that took place in November 2008, when 10 members of Lashkar-e-Taiba, an extremist Islamist organisation based in Pakistan, carried out 12 coordinated shooting and bombing attacks that lasted four days across Mumbai.

The 26/11 Mumbai terror attack was followed by NSG conducting Operation Black tornado on November 29 to take out the remaining attackers at the Taj Hotel and ended the attacks.

The victims lost their lives in the terror attacks at various places namely, Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, Mumbai Chabad House, The Oberoi Trident, The Taj Palace & Tower, Leopold Cafe, Cama Hospital, The Nariman House, the Metro Cinema, and in a lane behind the Times of India building and St. Xavier's College, eleven years ago which began on November 26, 2008.

As people round up to speak about the terror attack that shocked the world, it is pertinent that we take a moment to remember the one hundred and sixty-six people who were killed along with the 300 who were gravely injured in the 2008 terror attacks.
