Skip to comments.India Becomes Yet Another Major Victim of Radical Sunni Islam
Posted on 03/03/2010 11:02:44 PM PST by ErnstStavroBlofeld
Mumbai is in turmoil after Islamic jihadists attack many parts of this commercial city. At that moment at least 125 people have been killed in this ongoing carnage and clearly the security forces of India are at a loss. After all, the response was rather aimless during the first 24 hours. Therefore, Islamists were given a free reign for far too long during the initial stages. Obviously, at the moment the mass media is clutching at straws with regards to why this attack was so violent.
Yet in the "cold light of day" it is clear that terrorism is a growing threat in India. Therefore, what are the long-term consequences of this event? Also, can India's security forces restore confidence because this major incident does not speak well for India's security services?
At the moment reports are sketchy, therefore, it is easy to make wrong conclusions because the situation is so chaotic. Yet before focusing on this event, it is important to remember that terrorist attacks are on the increase in India. Indeed, Mumbai was attacked in 2006 and this led to the loss of hundreds of people being killed after Sunni Islamists caused mayhem. More recently, you have had a spate of terrorist attacks by Indian Muslims, and not only by outside forces, which was often the case in the past. Therefore, the threat of terrorism is real and it is a growing problem in India.

Why doesn’t the link go directly to the article?
Old article? The banner on the article page automatically updates no matter how old the article is. No date on the article itself either.
The headline today makes it sound like it happened today.
I’m not interested in old information.
That is the way Seoul Times presented it. I will be more careful next time.
I couldn’t find the article since the post wasn’t linked to it. Perhaps Seoul Times has some new insights, but if it is an old article of a past incident it really isn’t worth reading.
Hello to everybody!
I am the author of this article and it was not highlighted by The Seoul Times but on the front page they do highlight me and they use this article.
However, the names of the article below are in the correct order and my most recent article was about Radical Islam and Terrorism in the Balkans.
Sorry for any confusion.
