Mumbai, Nov 21: Indians in different parts of the country have been celebrating the news over Ajmal Kasab's execution. But, the same news invited a terror threat for the country.
The LeT commander, who masterminded the deadliest terror attack in Mumbai in 2008, called Kasab a "hero" and cursed India for hanging their "hero".
During a telephonic conversation, the LeT spokesperson said, "He was a hero and will inspire other fighters to follow his path."
Kasab was the lone surviving gunman of the 26/11 terror attacks. He was executed at Pune's Yerawada Jail on Wednesday and was buried inside the jail premises.
Very few people know who exactly was Kasab? Specific details are hard to pin down. Indian officials originally portrayed him as a middle-class boy who spoke good English. According to media reports, he belonged to a poor family in Faridkot in the Punjab province of Pakistan and his father used to sell food.
Kasab is said to have received little education. Media reports say that he had spent his youth alternating between labouring and petty crime.
