Protesting the terror attacks, Mumbaiites on Friday formed human chains at the spots targeted by terrorists and other key areas to raise their voice against the dastardly strikes.

People expressed the need to establish peace by coming out on the streets and holding hands in unity for fifteen minutes this afternoon.

"We have seen so much of hatred and bloodshed in our city that we will not give in to terror and to those who preach war, violence, hatred and intolerance," activist Jatin Desai said.

"The citizens have come together to keep Mumbai a city that is peaceful and united and to build a world based on the principles of tolerance and peace, equality and justice," he said.

The long chains running across the island city extend to the eastern and western suburbs.

One route of the chain was from Nariman House to Oberoi Trident Hotels, via 4th Pasta Lane, Free Press Road and NCPA.

The second route was along the west side of Oberoi Trident Hotels to S V Road, via Metro Junction, Kemps Corner, Worli Naka and Mahim causeway.

The third route started from Nariman House to S V Road, via Hutatma Chowk, CST, Crawford Market, Byculla Flyover, Dadar TT, Sion Circle, and Mahim causeway.
