Exclamation Attn. All Indians : Black on Wednesday

How does it feel to stare at the barrel when you are out for a normal day's work? We'll never know. A lot of Mumbaiites went through the pain of seeing their day turn dark in a blink. Some lost lives. Others lost relatives and close friends. Some barely managed to escape. What's true through all this suffering is that there is no reason what so ever to justify the killings, be it Indians, Americans, British citizens or any other nationalities. There simply is no logic and reason to this madness.

This is one of those instances where the loss is terrible. No amount of pity or resources in any form can alleviate the pain and suffering that this incident has brought. The scars will live on… The best form of retribution to such acts is to unite in spirit and act together.

Since this happened on Wednesday last, let us wear black on Wednesday (3-12-2008) to condemn such acts in future. Let's remember that we are doing this to express our genuine feelings and respect for life. Let's stand up for peace.

NB: Please forward this message to all Indians around the world.

Thanks

This concept of wearing black or white doesnt matter ... what matters most is green with a sign of the moon ... we can all wear that and spare our lives

I want to ask the Mr. Chicken who got caught whether would it matter if the turks were Shiyas and not sunnis ... may be in the heat of the situation they forgot these are Shiyas and they should settle their age-old panga along with other pangas from other countries ...
