People of Indian-American origin gathered outside Capitol Hill in the US today and paid tribute to those killed in the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack. People holding anti-Pakistan banners raised the slogan ‘We want justice’. People gathered to pay homage said that even after 12 years, Pakistan has not taken any action against the culprits even today. Instead, the guilty are still roaming free in Pakistan.
Community activist Krishna Reddy said, “We have come here on the anniversary of 2611 when terrorists from Pakistan entered Mumbai and killed innocent people, including 6 Americans. The terrorists saw the passports of the Americans and killed them.” The US intelligence is aware that this happened and it was being directly controlled by Pakistan’s intelligence. “
