On the 15th anniversary of the horrific 9/11 attacks, Indian actors Priyanka Chopra and Anupam Kher have paid a tribute to the victims.

Priyanka Chopra, currently busy shooting for her American TV series Quantico in New York, shared a photograph of the 9/11 memorial and captioned the image: “The 9/11 memorial on 9/11. It’s powerful. Stop the violence.”

Anupam Kher on Twitter shared: “Paid tribute to the victims of 9/11 at World Trade Centre, New York.”

September 11, 2001, was a defining moment, not just for America but for the world at large. The attacks that were claimed by the Islamic radical organisation “Al-Qaeda” would change the global order of things forever.

Families of the nearly 3,000 people killed in the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, gathered at the World Trade Center site to remember those they lost.

The terror attacks carried out by the Al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 people and left over 6,000 injured in New York and Washington D.C. The twin towers of the World Trade Centre in New York were destroyed in the attack.

A year later, America invaded Afghanistan which was the haven of the Taliban, who according to intelligence reports were aiding the “Al-Qaeda”. The following year, the Bush administration embarked upon its first “preventive war”, which laid out the necessity of acting against a country before the danger seemed imminent.

On the basis of a presumption that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction, America with the support of the United Kingdom, Poland and Australia invaded Iraq. The most devastating result of the armed struggle with Iraq was the terror that envelops the world today in the form of the Islamic State.
