Jammu and Kashmir chief minister Omar Abdullah has said Baby Moshe, who parents Gavriel and Rivka Holtzberg died in the 26/11 attacks at Nariman House, needs to be left alone rather than reminded about gruesome terror attack.

“Am I the only one who thinks that poor Moshe needs to be left alone rather than reminded, like clock work every year, about 26/11,” Omar wrote on mirco-blogging networking site Twitter.

Baby Moshe miraculously escaped during the siege at Nariman House in Mumbai but had lost his Jewish parents. Moshe, who celebrated his third birthday a week ago, has turned three and wants to return to his birthplace Mumbai.

The country paid tributes to the victims of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attack on its third anniversary.

Three years ago on November 26, 2008, 10 Pakistani terrorists held Mumbai hostage for nearly 60 hours killing 166 people, including several security personnel and foreigners besides over 300 people injured.

External Affairs Minister S M Krishna has called upon Pakistan to bring the perpetrators of the crime to speedy justice.
