The Caliphate is marching forward, leaving Hindus in its wake, an easier target today than Americans. The Indian Mujahideen” is suspected in two bombings in Hyderabad, one outside of a bus station and one outside of a movie theater, each attached to bicycles. Sixteen are dead, 70 injured. In a letter reported today, several days after the two Hyderabad bombings, Lashkar-e-Taiba is claiming responsibility, and are believed to be a front for the Indian Mujahideen. As you’ll read below, Hyderabad executed a Muslim militant convicted of a 2001 attack on India’s parliament. After 3,000 died in the U.S. in 2001, we haven’t executed a single terrorist through our Department of Justice – but perhaps we would have had Capitol Hill been attacked, or the Obama DOJ.

Echoes of August 2007 when 42 died in two separate bomb blasts in Hyderabad.
India has been under a heightened state of alert over the hanging of Mohammed Afzal Guru, a Kashmiri militant killed nearly two weeks ago. He was executed for his involvement in a 2001 attack on India’s parliament that killed 14 people, including five gunmen.
Since the execution, near-daily protests have rocked Indian-ruled Kashmir, where many people believe Guru did not receive a fair trial. Anger in a region where anti-India sentiment runs deep was further fuelled by the secrecy with which the execution was carried out. Source: The Guardian
