Amitabh Bachchan Recalls Horror Of 26/11 After 13 Years

Mumbai: Superstar Amitabh Bachchan said on Friday that the 26/11 terror strike has had a long after effect and gotten entangled with the “tumultuous history that still weighs down the subcontinent”. He said while recalling the ghastly incident happened 13 winters ago.

No single act of terror should be given the power to destroy the “interconnectedness of our stories” and “our plural solidarities”, Bachchan wrote for The Indian Express.

“Despite immense pressure, it did not give in to the temptation of military retaliation against Pakistan – even as the capture of Mohammad Ajmal Kasab and the revelations of David Headley stripped Pakistan’s military-ISI establishment of the alibi of non-state actors beyond its control, and left it no fig leaf,” Bachchan wrote.

The 79-year-old warned against letting “ourselves be defined and deformed by fear” and “suspicion”. “The reality is that 26/11 has had a long afterlife, and it has got entangled with the tumultuous history that still weighs down the Subcontinent,” Big B wrote.

He also said that it is not yet clear whether we have skirted all the traps it set for us. “Each year we count, now it’s 13 years later, and the dark night that stretched over three long days is still vivid in our collective memory. That was also the terrorists” aim, the vividness was part of their design,” Bachchan said.
