The general reaction amongst people of Mumbai was that enough is enough, and measures to prevent any such attacks in the future should be taken immediately.
In the words of Mumbai residents:
“Mumbaikars want only peace, non-interference in their routine lives, because that's the only way the city thrives. There have been so many terror attacks in the past two decades, but Mumbai has learnt to survive with or without them."
"Yes, we are angry. Yes, one feels cheated. Cheated by the very establishment, that we believe works for us".
“Enough is enough, there is a need to take steps to avenge the attacks on our people and democracy.”
Commenting on the poor equipment levels of the Mumbai police, Late Hemant Karkare’s wife said, “It has become a fashion to announce compensation for the fallen heroes after such incidents. If the police had been better equipped, such incidents would not occur.”(AFP photo)
