Inspector Shri Rupwate of the Powai Region said, “If people come forward like this they won’t mind giving their lives for the country. The good outcome that we see here is that we Indians are united. Terrorism can only be fought jointly. It needs sustained effort. The sad scenario which we saw recently on television and with which we got educated, should be kept in mind and people should take measures to help us (Police) to protect the country”
This awareness program by Dr L H Hiranandani Hospital, Powai educated localities about how one should deal with the situation and how we should help police to protect ourselves. All the queries of localities regarding terrorist, citizens’ roles, and police roles were answered by the Mumbai Police. The program commenced by observing a 2 minutes silence and lighting candles in the memory of those people who were the victims of these terror attacks in the city.
This program was a move towards defining one’s role as a responsible citizen who will be able to strengthen the hands of the security forces to help protect the city. Our city has been attacked. Innocent people bore the brunt of unprecedented, senseless, barbaric violence which has left many families shattered. The country is unanimous that something needs to be done. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!! In consonance with this sentiment, the Dr L H Hiranandani Hospital had a public awareness program with the Mumbai Police.
