India Rocked by Islamist Terror Attack

India was knocked on its heels yesterday by two terrorist blasts in the southern city of Hyderabad. The bombs were timed to explode consecutively beginning at 7pm local time at two crowded sites in the city of 7 million people. At this point, there are 20 killed and 30 injured, but those numbers are expected to grow.

As the evening wore on and the facts emerged on Friday, it became clear that the bombings were the work of the Indian Mujahadeen (IM), a group responsible for terror attacks that have killed over 300 Indians and injured many times more. It is well known here that IM receives financial and logistical support from the Pakistani intelligence wing, Inter-service Intelligence or ISI. Both the IM and ISI have been declared terrorist groups by the United States government and others.

Reports in India last night and today are that there were unequivocal warnings from intelligence about this, but the government chose to ignore them. Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde visited the blast site and has become the left-center Congress government’s voice. He has been scored in the media and the tumult in the Lok Sabha (roughly like the US House) that it forced the legislature to shut down.

The debate is not over, nor is India’s reaction to the event in any way clear at this point.
