Statement on 10th anniversary of terrorist attack in Mumbai, India


November 27, 2018 – Ottawa, Ontario – Global Affairs Canada

Global Affairs Canada today issued the following statement in remembrance of the Mumbai terrorist attack which happened 10 years ago this week:

“This week we recall the cowardly terrorist attacks that unfolded over four tragic days in November 2008, in several locations across Mumbai. The attack caused hundreds of fatalities and injuries. Two Canadians were killed during the attack.

“Our thoughts are with the survivors of the attacks, as well as the families and loved ones of the victims, whose lives were changed forever. Canada remains dismayed that the perpetrators of this violence have not yet been held responsible and call for them to be swiftly brought to justice.

“We must work together to defeat terrorism in all its forms. We stand in solidarity with the Indian government and the people of India in the ongoing fight to prevent radicalization and fight terrorism, at home and aboard.

“Together, we must renew our commitment to protect the freedom found in societies that promote unity, openness and inclusion and to build a world where we can all feel safe and secure.”
