Well, I waited up all night for the announcement that Hindu extremists had taken credit for yesterday’s blasts in New Delhi. But early this morning I read the following item in AsiaNews:
|The Islami Inqilabi Mahaz (Islamic Revolutionary Group), an obscure Kashmiri militant group, claimed responsibility on Sunday for yesterday bomb blasts in India’s capital which killed at least 61 people. However, security officers see the hand of Lashkar-e-Taiba (Force of the Pure), a Pakistan outlaw group, in a new attempt to derail the peace process between India and Pakistan.|
|On Sunday, Islami Inqilabi Mahaz phoned local newspapers in Indian Kashmir, claiming responsibility for the blasts and warning of more to come.|
Yesterday’s speculation by commenters turns out to have been accurate: the mujahiddeen are not happy when the infidel Hindus move into Kashmir to help with earthquake relief, and otherwise promote a “peace process.” For the Great Islamic Jihad, it has to be All War, All the Time.
It’s a good thing nobody took me up on my bet.
