Channel 4 has recently shown Dan Reed’s documentary “Terror in Mumbai” in its series “Dispatches”.

If you are in a region where it works, you can watch it on Channel 4’s website for a few more weeks. Else, here are the YouTube links:

Part 1: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edsRBijAx_U
Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SXq8HpH_0Kw
Part 3: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ujjuuqQF3Zk
Part 4: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=exWd_dBLU1s
Part 5: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R3bBk8Hc2UA

The visuals are graphic at times, so viewer discretion is advised.

[Update on September 17, 2009: The videos have been removed from YouTube.]

You might also want to read this article from Irfan Husain, written after watching the documentary.

While Muslims argue that Islam does not condone this kind of terrorism against unarmed, innocent civilians, most do not condemn it in clear, unequivocal terms. After agreeing that such acts are un-Islamic, there is all too often a lingering ‘Yes, but…’ hanging in the air.

It is this ambiguity that has given terror groups in Pakistan and elsewhere the space and legitimacy they need to operate. Now that Pakistanis have seen the true face of terrorism in Swat, and have begun to support the government in its drive to rid us of this cancer, the lesson needs to be reinforced. One way would be to dub the Channel 4 documentary and show it extensively on various TV channels in Pakistan. We need to hear ordinary people who survived or lost close relatives, and see their pain.

We need to see the horrors inflicted in the name of Islam. Above all, we need to share the agony of our neighbours. [Dawn]

    I wonder if this documentary (Terror in Mumbai)has appeared on Al Jazeera and if so, what reaction it caused.

    This can help you only look for vacuums that meet this price criterion and you will not be
    tempted to look at a vacuum that is out of your price range.
    The attachments and unique design of the Bissell let you keep your home free of allergens and pet hair.
    Of course, because a vacuum appliance is very important in our lives, we must do all we
    can to make sure that service continues for a longer period of time.
