Muslim Terrorists Blast India, Scores Murdered…….

Hyderabad, India, was the latest scene for Islamic terrorist attacks, has left at least 37 dead and over 50 wounded.

The multiple and very well timed explosions, have all the trademarks of an Al-Qaida attack.

“The blasts — one in a park during a laser show, and one in the crowded restaurant — went off minutes apart, officials said. A third bomb was later found under a footbridge and defused in the city’s busy Bilsukh Nagar commercial area, and another in a movie theater in the Narayanguba neighborhood, a police official said on condition of anonymity.

Late-night movie showings were then cancelled across the city. “This is a terrorist act,” Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, the chief minister for Andhra Pradesh state, where Hyderabad is located, told reporters, urging people to remain calm. “

According to Indian officials, the banned Islamist group, Harkat-ul-Jehadi Islami were responsible for the terrorist attacks. One interesting point worth noting, is that the Islamists face a more difficult time in advancing their goals in India than in other democratic countries, since the Hindu state is very much aware of the threat Islam poses to its way of life.

I doubt that the threat of terrorism will cause India to cave into the Islamists’ demands, like Spain after the March 11th train bombings in 2004. More here. *L* KGS

Update: Abhishek Rajpurohit, a native from the attacked city of Hyderabad comments:

“Its all the more shocking to observe the State Govt. not interested in coming up with strict anti-terrorist acts to curb the rising terrrorism in this beautiful city, …Would we learn something from the Black Saturday for Hyderabad ?? “

  2. Dear Blogger,
    In your post you have used the term “…the Hindu state..” for India. I would like to point out that even though the country is predominantly Hindu, its officially a ‘Secular’ state(like Finland) and not ‘Hindu’. The reason why I am pointing this out to you is that it won’t take time for some muslim troll to come here, and start saying that “those Hindus deserved it” or “muslims are trying to free themselves from tyrannical Hindu rule.”
    For the record, the only Hindu state is Nepal (India’s Maoist neighbour).

    Its also a delight in seeing someone from a Scandinavian country speak out against the atrocities civilized people (specially in Europe) have to put up against. And since you are from Finland, the perspective couldn’t be any better.

  3. Thank you so much Affalterbach for taking the time in letting me know about that, I did in fact mess that up, India is indeed a secular state.

    Thank you also for the kind words about the TT, much appreciated. KGS
