After London and Bali, Muslim terrorists kill more than 50 in New Delhi

For those who dont know where Delhi is, its the capital of India
(just like London is the capital of England)....and it lies in South East Asia.

Ahead of a Hindu festival, 3 bomb blasts kill more than 50 and injures 200+ in Delhi.

Thank you, finally. I was wondering how long it would take for somebody to post.

I restate my opinion of all matters regarding these fascistic Islamist groups ~ we are all infidels.

Another tragedy

Thats why I´m not posting it. After all, what can you do except of being sad and angry.

60.000 policemen search for the terroists in New Delhi now. A Kashmir extremist group has said they were responsible, but nobody knows if it really was them.

Deepavali is a major event on the Hindu calendar; it's like what Christmas means to other people. The policemen oughta be spending this time with their families, not hunting down terrorists

Incidentally, the casualties included not just Hindus shopping for Diwali, but Muslims shopping for Eid al-Fitr as well. India is close to 15% Muslim.

Thus far investigators suspect that the group which claimed responsibility, Inquilabi Mehaz, is little more than a front for the well-established (and well-organized) Lashkar-e-Tayyaba, a militant jihadist group that wants all of Kashmir to belong to Pakistan.

Until the early 1990s, armed resistance in Kashmir was distinctly nationalist and secularist in character, characterized by groups like the JKLF (Jammu & Kashmir Liberation Front) which generally favored an independent state, rather than union with either Pakistan or India. Since then, militant Islamist groups--not necessarily closely linked to al-Qaeda, but sharing its dreams of restoring Islamic rule throughout Central and South Asia--have come to the fore. Indian sources generally reckon them to number in the hundreds rather than the thousands, but as these are very well-organized, highly trained militants, they nonetheless have had devastating impact.

Sadly, as the entire region is armed to the teeth and violence has long since become a time-honored tactic on all sides, there is at present little breathing room for a moderate, pro-negotiations prespective. One can only hope that the present tentative willingness of India and Pakistan to engage in dialogue on the issue might eventually reawaken faith in the possibility of a political resolution. A completely peaceful one is probably too much to hope for.

To what extent Lashkar-e-Tayyaba is supported by Islamabad is, needless to say, a critical but explosive question and not one to be jumped to conclusions on.

I mentioned in the Pakistani earthquake thread a few days back that *one* good reason for the West to be generous in providing assistance here is because jihadist groups will for sure be doing so as well. And Lashkar-e-Tayyaba is a perfect example. They have set up a fully equipped field hospital in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, and have been involved in ferrying supplies into some of the most devastated areas. This is a smart, time-honored tactic of Islamist groups from Palestine to Turkey to Pakistan: where governments have proven ineffective at meeting the basic needs of the people, they step in and win the people's support with their charity.

Thats the first positive thing I hear about those people. If this is a smart tactic, it may be not so positive in the long run, however - apparently they help people where the nation-state is unable to perform that function.

Back to the topic, from wikipediia:

Lashkar-e-Toiba or Lashkar-i-Taiba (the Army of the Pure) is a Kashmir separatist group that uses terrorist strategies. It was formed in the year 1990 and is based in Muridke, Pakistan and Muzaffarabad, Pakistan-administered Kashmir. The group is active in carrying out attacks on Indian armed forces and civilians in Kashmir. It is considered a well-trained armed wing of Pakistan-based Markaz Dawa-Wal-Irshad (the Centre for Religious Learning and Propagation), an organisation with Islamist views. US Secretary of State Colin Powell in a notification on December 26, 2001 designated Lashkar-e-Toiba as a foreign terrorist organisation.

Lashkar's professed ideology goes beyond challenging Indian rule in Jammu and Kashmir. In a pamphlet entitled Why Are We Waging Jihad? the group defined its agenda as the restoration of Islamic rule over all parts of India.[1]. It seems that in their view, the restoration of Secularism in India after the collapse of the Islamic rule of the Islamic Mughal Emperor of Aurangzeb was a historic wrong they seek to set right. Lashkar-e-Toiba is believed responsible for the series of attacks on August 1-2,2000, in which more than 100 people, most of who were civilians, were killed.

Lashkar-e-Toiba has an estimated strength of 300 and is believed to be headed by Mohammed Latif. It operates mostly in the Kashmir Valley which includes the districts of Baramulla, Anatnag, Ponch and Srinagar.

India accuses Lashkar-e-Toiba of practising ethnic cleansing directed against Hindu residents of Kashmir, particularly in the Jammu region. On March 20, 2000, for example, the militant group killed 35 Sikh and Hindu civilians at Chattisinghpora, among other similar incidents.

Pakistan denies responsibility for Lashkar-e-Toiba's activities, but India alleges evidence relating to its non-military wing's fund raising activities in Pakistan indicates otherwise. Recent peace efforts by the Musharraf administration have led to a crackdown of its operations in Kashmir, compelling it to change name to Tehrik-e-Furqan.

Muslim in India are around 13.4% ....and they were just around 10% 40 years ago. Hindus consistute more than 80% of the population.

>>the casualties included not just Hindus shopping for Diwali

Even the casualities of July 7 London Bombing included muslims. The 9/11 tragedy also had muslims as victims. ...What does you mean by that.

babyman - Call it Al-qaeda , call it Laskar-e-Toiba, its one and the same thing.

foray - i stand corrected.
