Are the Mumbai Attacks India's 9/11?

Is the three-day siege on Mumbai reminiscent of the al Qaeda attacks on the U.S. on September 11?

The Indian media have called the terrorist attacks in Mumbai "India's 9/11." The only gunman that has been captured said he belonged to a Pakistani militant group, but Indian officials are reluctant to blame Pakistan's government. According to the Associated Press, a U.S. counterterrorism official said that the "signatures of the attack" were consistent with militant groups that are reported to have al Qaeda links. Do you think the three-day siege on Mumbai is the Indian version of 9/11? Could it have been inspired by the al Qaeda attacks on the U.S. on September 11? Post your thoughts.
