Batting legend Sachin Tendulkar, India’s Test and ODI skipper Virat Kohli, former Indian opener and now a politician Gautam Gambhir and the likes of Wasim Jaffer and Virender Sehwag took to their respective Twitter handles to pay homage to the lives lost.

“It was a heartbreaking and painful time, but the spirit shown by everyone is what makes us stronger. My heartfelt tribute to all the bravehearts we lost during 26/11. Always in our prayers” wrote Sachin Tendulkar on his Twitter account.

“We will never forget this day, we will never forget the lives lost. Sending my prayers to the friends and families who lost their loved ones,” wrote India’s Test and ODI skipper Virat Kohli on his Twitter account.

“Remembering the exemplary courage and supreme sacrifice of our bravehearts today,” wrote Wasim Jaffer on his Twitter account along with sharing a picture of all the policemen who lost their lives in the attack.

India’s former opener Virender Sehwag remembered Shaheed Tukaram Omble who served as assistant sub-inspector in Mumbai Police and lost his life fighting against the terrorists.

“13 years since the sad day. He is of the greatest son of our soil- Shaheed Tukaram Omble. The courage, the presence of mind and the selflessness demonstrated by him on that day- no words, no awards can do justice. Dandavat pranam hai aise mahaan insaan ko,” wrote Sehwag on his twitter account.

Sharing a picture burning Taj Mahal Palace – one of the five major locations targetted by the terrorists, India’s former opener and now a politician Gautam Gambhir wrote: “This needed retaliation not dossiers! #MumbaiAttack”
