    "A Nation In Solidarity Against Terror" at India Gate on Sunday for solidarity
    Saturday 28th November, 2009

    New Delhi, Nov. 28: Under the aegis of the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), a 60-minute event entitled, "A Nation In Solidarity Against Terror" is being organized in the national capital's India Gate on Sunday (Nov.29).

    The date is symbolic, since it was the final day when the siege in Mumbai last year ended.

    The event will be held at 5 p.m. tomorrow and is intended to express the nation's solidarity against terror.

    Mumbai terror attacks were meant to weaken the resolve of the country and challenge its capacity to remain a peaceful and democratic nation.

    Various artists, sportspersons and representatives of civil society from across the country are coming together at the India Gate to share the message of solidarity, courage and resolve to stand up against terrorist violence.

    Prominent persons participating in the event include Bollywood's Shah Rukh Khan, Nandita Das, Javed Akhtar, Dr. L. Subramaniam, Kavita Krishnamurthy, Shankar Mahadevan, Shreya Ghoshal, Shilpa Rao, Shekhar Gupta, Abhinav Bindra, Sania Mirza and Feroz Abbas Khan. The event is being produced and managed by Wizcraft International Entertainment.

    The event carries the message: "Terror has no religion. Our solidarity, courage and resoluteness are the answer to the threat of terror."

    The event is free for the public and news television channels will broadcast it live in a symbolic gesture of solidarity.

    SRK, Sania to attend anti-terror event

    Times of India

    NEW DELHI: Shah Rukh Khan, Nandita Das, Javed Akhtar, Shreya Ghoshal, Abhinav Bindra and Sania Mirza are among prominent personalities who will
    gather at the historic India Gate here on Sunday to express the nation's solidarity against terror with a message: "Terror has no religion. Our solidarity, courage and resoluteness are the answer to the threat of terror."

    The 60-minute programme -- A Nation In Solidarity Against Terror -- is being organised under the aegis of the home ministry with a view to sending a strong message that India has the capacity, courage and confidence to overcome the threat.

    "India has at regular intervals been the target of terror attacks sponsored by external terrorist organisations. The terror attacks were meant to weaken the resolve of the country and challenge its capacity to remain a peaceful and democratic nation," an official statement issued by the ministry said.

    It said that November 29 is symbolic, since it was the day when the terrorist siege in Mumbai ended last year.

    "Artists, sportspersons and representatives of civil society from across the country are coming together at India Gate to share the message of solidarity, courage and resolve to stand up against terrorist violence," the statement said.

    Among the other prominent persons participating in the event are violin player L Subramaniam, singers Kavita Krishnamurthy and Shilpa Rao, and musician Shankar Mahadevan.

    The event is being supported by several private and public sector organizations.

    WOW... Though I'm not surprised Shah Rukh is going to be there :heart:, I'm a little bit surprised he's the only big star in Bollywood who's attending... Shouldn't more stars encourage this?

    I hope NDTV will air this live. :pray: 'Cause I'll be ready in front of my laptop by 5 pm sharp. :D
    But yea, it's weird that only few high-profile are in this. :rolleyes: Like Rajshri said, more stars should be roped in to encourage this.
