Who are some great Indians that most people have not heard of? by Akshay Gupta
Answer by Akshay Gupta:
On the evening of 26th, Taufeeq was about to leave when he heard a loud bang followed by people rushing and running. Then came stream of bullets and he dodged them. He called his wife and told her he may not survive but wont leave because he had to help people.
In his own words“I called my wife at that point and told her that I might die because there could still be bombs at the station. She asked me to leave and go home, but I told her that I had to help my people”.
He helped in getting the injured ones to safety and stayed at CST with a police officer for the entire night. People like him are the reason fanatics of ISIS or any other terror organization, who kill in the name of Islam and religion will never win.
Attack of 26/11 was one of the most heinous terrorist attack in history of India. Hotel Taj was one of the attacked site and Karambir Kang was general manager of the hotel. He was one of the first to be attacked on dreadful attack of 26/11.
When the terrorists unleashed mayhem, he survived but his wife and children were trapped in fire on 6th floor. He knew this, but he refused to leave and kept on helping the NSG team in securing the site and rescuing others. He lost his family in that fire. Some sources says, he refused to leave the site even after a request from Ratan Tata.
