The 26/11 Mumbai attacks of 2008 as we all reported earlier were a sequel to Spanish Train Bombings which were coordinated with such sophistication where 2 parallel and distinct operations were carried out.
- The attack on Taj, Oberoi, Trident, Leopold and Nariman House along the seashore.
- The attack at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST), Cama Hospital and Rangbhavan Lane in the heart of the city.
The two targets, the ATS Chief Hemant Karkare and the three buildings that were selected, are diagonally opposite in nature and texture. The former is definitely not in favour of either the underworld or the foreign intelligence agencies that want to penetrate into India using the cover of rightwing militant organizations. The latter mentioned targets, Taj and Oberoi hosted ‘distinguished guests’ during the last week of November 2008. Most of them were Diamond Merchants and coordinators of intelligence in South Asia.
Here is an exhaustive account of what really happened at the Nariman House, a centre for disseminating traditional Judaism by the Chabad movement also known as Chabad House, pieced together from facts reported in multiple mainstream news media outlets during the time but largely ignored during investigation and analysis. The special issue was brought out by GreatGameIndia – Magazine which is the India’s only quarterly magazine on Geopolitics and International Affairs.
