One of the terrorists arrested by the security forces during the recent terror attack in Mumbai, is reported to have no regret at all, on the contrary he repeatedly says that such acts would take him to heaven as promised by God!
The latest attack in Mumbai that left 173 dead including police officers and foreigners and 239 injured is the worst one India has witnessed so far. It has been reported that ten well trained and heavily armed terrorists reached Mumbai through the sea hijacking a fishing boat and began to shoot indiscriminately. They attacked around seven places including a hospital, railway station, three hotels and a Jewish center.
Two of them killed some high profile police officers and captured their vehicle to move around and shoot! It took 62 hours of hard work for India 's best commandos to rescue to hostages and liberate the hotels and the Jewish center. It was a painful scene for an Indian to see one of the beautiful landmark of Mumbai -The Tag Hotel - of Mumbai being attacked and burning. Though there is relief, yet the people are grieved, and worried. After seeing so many terrorist attacks in different parts of India , still there is no sign of solution.
We salute the slain security men for their bravery and sacrifice and stand with the people of India at this time of sorrow and pain.
One thing is noteworthy, as one of them said, these young radicals are brainwashed in such a way that they are willing to die after killing maximum people. They are taught that they will go to heaven if they perform such horrible activities! What a distorted idea of heaven!
The Bible says, “ The cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers …….and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone which is the second death. ” Revealation.21:8. According to the Lord Jesus Christ, even hating one another is tantamount to murder and we can not escape punishment. It is time for all of us to make the truth -the real truth- about hell and heaven may be made known far and wide.
