Mumbai was on red alert after weekend protests left two dead and dozens injured, as fears grow that simmering violence in India’s northeast could spill over into major cities in the build-up to India’s independence day this week.

Crowds gathered on Saturday to protest about violence against Muslims in Assam, a state in the country’s remote northeast, that has left nearly 80 people dead and 400,000 displaced since early July.

Say, don't I recall India recently lecturing us about violence in America after the Sikh attack? And our government officials groveling and apologising?

Wonder what dear Hillary and her airhead boss will say about these events.

The arrested are Muslims:

23 booked for Mumbai violence

IANS
The Pioneer
Sunday, August 12, 2012

Mumbai - Police Sunday booked 23 people for murder, attempt to murder, molestation and damage to public property as they began probing violence during a Muslim protest which left two dead and 100 injured.

Police said in their remand application that the violence appeared to be “pre-planned and pre-meditated” given the systematic manner in which it was carried out outside Azad Maidan, he said.

Muslim groups called Saturday’s gathering to protest killing of Muslims in Myanmar and Assam.

Other charges slapped on the accused included physical attack on police and public, theft of government weapons and unlawful assembly, said Shaikh.

Joint Police Commissioner (Crime) Himanshu Roy told the media: “We have set up a special team to investigate the entire incident and find out the causes and the people behind it.”

Roy said police were studying the speeches of organisers to determine if they were provocative.

Shaikh claimed his client Ghulam M. Musa Sheikh, a 22-year old final year engineering student from Bandra’s Rizvi College, was innocent and he was picked up as he went to collect his vehicle parked near Azad Maidan.

The other accused are: Fahim Sheikh, Alamgir Pathan, Jamir Sheikh, Mohammed Wasim Sheikh, Javed Sheikh, Sakir Sheikh, Mohammed Bilal Sheikh, Mohammed Abdul Razzak, Aslam Sheikh, Ghulam M. Musa Sheikh, Mohammed Umer, Anwar Qureshi, Mohammed Momin Umer, Mohammed Ansari, Rihan Rashid Sheikh, Mohammed Ahmed, Imran Sheikh, Anis Danare, Afzal Sheikh, Umer Ansari, Amin Chaudhari and Abbas Ujjainwala.

Roy said CCTV records were being scanned to identify the rioters for the violence which paralysed Mumbai for several hours.

The trouble affected a two kilometre radius around Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, opposite the Azad Maidan, the venue of the Saturday procession.

Roy said the extent of damage to public and private property was being studied. He added that the organisers will be ordered to compensate for it as per the laws.

Some people were questioned to know their antecedents and role in the violence.

A group of youths attacked journalists and police personnel and damaged public and private vehicles.

Taking police and the organisers by surprise, the attacks quickly spread, engulfing the media, police, even some participants in the procession, vehicles and media vans.

At the final count, 49 BEST buses were damaged, 12 police vans were hit, including three which were burnt, 50 private vehicles, including three vans of private TV channels, were torched.

After a tense Saturday, Mumbai bounced back to its usual self.

“The situation is calm, road traffic is normal, all public buses and suburban train services are functioning as usual,” a city control centre official said.

Police maintained a tight vigil all over the city and surroundings.

That's why Pakistan was created. To get rid of all the rabid muslim rats. A good chunk of India was separated for all the muslims to emmigrate to a new country just for them. They were supposed to go foul and blow up their own country.

Guess that didn't work.

India should just march them all to the border one more time.

India is 13.4% Muslim. In 1947, British India was partitioned into India and Pakistan. The Hindus were driven out of Pakistan, but over a hundred million Muslims remain in India.

It will get uglier over the next year or two.

13.4% is a gross underestimate. The Muslim population referred to in this article aren't indigenous to the area but infiltrating into Assam from Bangladesh. Bangladesh is like India's mexico only larger and poorer. The illegal B’deshi population don't figure in the census count for Muslim.

Could the messages hidden in the above sentence be “lynch using a sheet of cloth (turban)” and “make a hole (dot) in the forehead with a bullet”?

With the continuing illegal influx of Muslims from and through neighboring countries — some of it unchecked due to “play nice” pressure on Indian politicians from both Clinton and Obama administrations (note that Hillary’s assistant is linked to al-Qaeda) — and because of the Muslim reproductive rate (multiple wives), I’d estimate India’s Muslim population at about 20%.

Reminds me of:

Biden should apologize for “back in chains” remark

Editorial
The Boston Globe
August 17, 2012

Excerpt:

Biden has a history of making remarks that would rile up
liberals if they were spoken by a conservative
politician. Back in 2008, when Biden was running against
Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination,
he had to apologize for saying, “I mean, you got the
first mainstream African American who is articulate and
bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that’s a
storybook, man.”

He once told an Indian American, “You can’t go to a 7-11
or a Dunkin’ Donuts unless you have a slight Indian
accent. I’m not joking.” During a January 2012 speech in
New Hampshire, he briefly drifted into a foreign accent
while imitating a Indian call center worker. At that same
rally where he made the “back in chains” crack, Biden
also imitated the sign language woman and said, “You’re
gonna have trouble translating all this! That poor lady,
she’s gonna have tendonitis by the time she finishes
this.”

May do number-two in the pants too. Most Sikhs are courageous warriors at heart even when they are not employed by the military and police.

Never played it before, don’t plan to. You must have someone else in mind.

Never wore one, don’t plan to. What’s happening — are you in some kind of a rage over something? Take care FRiend.

Where have you been? 9/11 was religious violence. Ft. Hood was religious violence. Waco was religious violence. Wisconsin was religious violence. Wake up, religious violence exists throughout the world.

Correction. Religious violence BY Americans is rare. It’s common among the more ignorant groups of Ragheads around the world. Better.
