The terrorist assault on Mumbai was an attack on the idea of India and the freedom of its people, Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi told parliament Thursday.The terrorist attack on Mumbai was an attack on the whole nation. It was an attack on the idea of India. It was an attack on all of us, it was an attack on the freedom of our people, Gandhi told the Lok Sabha while participating in a debate on the Nov 26 terrorist strike. It is a new kind of warfare against India. Terrorists view and attack us as their enemies. We must also respond as one. Fight against terrorism is a national priority and we must put the nation first, he said. Making an emotional plea, Gandhi, MP from Amethi and son of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, said: We can fight terrorism only if we believe that every Indian life is worth fighting for. The central thing to change is how we view the life of an ordinary people. Speaking out against politicisation of police forces, he said: As a young politician I would like to say that in the interest of the country we must desist from it. Also, that in the interest of common people we must stop interfering in the working of these institutions. He also noted: People from every region and every religion have raised their voice for those who lost their lives in the Mumbai terror attack. I am sure we will win the fight against terrorism.
