Outraged at the Mumbai terror attack, Indians in the US and community organizations termed it as India 9/11 and an assault on its financial heart.

"Like 9/11 (the Sep 11, 2001 terror attack on the US), this attack was on India's financial capital," said the Hindu America Foundation.

Urging for calm and restraint by the people, the Foundation demanded the Maharashtra state government and the union government take emergency measures to halt further attacks and bring the terrorists to justice.

"It is our hope that the international community and the Indian government will wake up to the reality of terrorists in their midst and take immediate steps to ensure security for its people," said Suhag Shukla, the HAF managing director.

Federation of South Asian American Communities (FOSAAC) chief Kevin Kaul condemned the attack and said it is an act of cowardice.
