The attack aimed to strike at India's democratic core, challenging the nation's governance and sovereignty.
Extremist groups based in Pakistan, including Jaish-e-Mohammed and Lashkar-e-Taiba, were linked to the attackers.
India accused Pakistan of harboring terrorists, leading to escalated tensions and a military standoff between the two countries.
The attack prompted India to bolster security around sensitive government installations, initiating stringent security protocols.
Stringent anti-terrorism laws were passed, and diplomatic efforts intensified to isolate Pakistan internationally.
The attack left a lasting impact, emphasizing the ongoing threat of terrorism and the need for continuous vigilance and counter-terrorism measures.
