Bebo, Saif offer deepest condolence

Following the terrorist attack in Mumbai, Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan were deeply hurt. Though away for shooting on that black day, Kareena remained connected to her city and dear ones and constantly took a tab of their well being. On knowing the incident, she was worried, angry and furious. She narrated her feelings in the following words. Kareena wrote, On Wednesday, 26th November, when the terrorists attacked Mumbai, I was getting ready to start my day 7000 miles away in Philadelphia. I got a call from my sister saying there are bomb blasts in Mumbai. It was an eerie feeling. Seven years ago, we were in India following the news coverage of the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Centre in New York. Today, I was in the US, following the news coverage of the 26/11 attack on India's financial capital. CNN was carrying live coverage of the attacks.

In the days that have followed the 26th of November, I have felt a surge of mixed emotions. Sadness at the loss of lives and property. Admiration for our police, armed forces and firemen, who did their best and fought bravely despite the limited means at their disposal. Disgust with the so-called political leaders who provide no leadership and ironically surround themselves with so many security guards while doing little or nothing for the security of the people who have voted them to power. And anger at the cowards who kill in the name of religion, and anger at the cowards who support them without owning up.

Saif and I both would like to offer our deepest condolences to all the bereaved are in our thoughts and will stay in our minds...I love my city very much...Mumbai is my home, our home... and is the city that has given us all so much. I pray that we can build a better tomorrow on the rubble of our today.
