In November 2008, a group of terrorists engineered a horrific attack in Mumbai, causing the death of Indian and foreign civilians. The brutality of the attack, in which women, children and senior citizens were murdered, shocked the entire world who bore witness to the fifty-nine hour siege on television. The masterminds behind the attack referred to it as jihad, a necessary war. An in-depth analysis of one of India's most horrific events, Mumbai Terror Attacks relives a tragedy that continues to resonate in the country, attempting to scrutinise the minds and motives of the terrorists involved.
