`Terrorism mad violator of human rights’November 27th, 2008 - 9:39 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Nov 27 (IANS) Terrorism is a “mad violator of human rights”, the National Human Rights Commission said Thursday while referring to the Mumbai terror attacks in which at least 101 people were killed.”Terrorism is a mad violator of human rights. A terrorist has no religion. He does not believe in the tenets of religion because no religion preaches such insane violence. Therefore, terrorism of whatever hue must be unequivocally condemned by all,” the commission said in a statement.
“The commission appeals to all communities and sections of society to join in the fight against terrorism without any reservation,” it added.
In what can be called one of India’s worst terror attacks in Mumbai, militants attacked high profile landmarks, including the Taj Mahal Palace and Tower Hotel, the Oberoi Trident Hotel, Metro Theatre and the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (formerly Victoria Terminus) railway station.
At least 101 people, including a foreign tourist and four top police officers, were killed and over 250 injured.
The crisis continued Thursday with terrorists holding people hostage in the two five-star hotels.
