The United Nations on Friday held its ‘Global Congress of Victims of Terrorism’ in New York. Speaking at the event was Karambir Kang, the general manager of the Taj Hotel during the 26/11 terror attacks. Kang called upon the international community to ‘work together to seek justice’ for the victims who lost their lives during the attack and said: “…while the terrorists who entered the hotel met their fate, the people who planned it financed it and organised the attack remain free.”

In his appeal for justice to the global leaders, Kang said that while the company and staff received global accolades, the victims of the attack have spent 14 long and painful years trying to seek justice. “While the terrorists who entered the hotel met their fate, the people who planned it financed it and organised the attack remain free. Today I call upon the international community to work together to seek justice nationally and across borders, as our own act of defiance to the terrorism, we opened the hotel which was totally destroyed in 21 days.”
