    Can't people see that it is clearly not an orange thread worn by traditional Hindus but that it looks more like a rubber wrist band of some sort? Why is it that the religious blame game is happening? Why don't you'll just leave it to the authorities to discern who is to be blamed and who is at the bottom of this whole plot? Please for God's sake stop all this racial blame and allegations and lets just pray for peace not only in our country but also in the world. Lets fight unitedly against terrorism and believe only in the single fact that we are all humans at the end of the day. As much as there are good and bad all over the world its even so within the Hindus and Muslims and everyone else. We just cannot categorize or generalize these things. Please people stop blaming and just leave it to the authorities to do their investigations and punish the perpetrators.

    These things are are taking place because in spite of India warning the world that Pakistan is a safe haven for terrorist, the US and other western nations have been funding and arming Pakistan. US only takes action if their interest are attacked but ignores time and again the attacks that take place along India's borders and within India by these very same terrorist. US talks of war against terror but you cant fight a war on terror by funding the very same people who are producing these terrorist. The truth is that the Pakistan Govt is virtually namesake the clout is with the war lords, the ISI and the Terrorist groups within Pakistan that the Govt nurtured and now have no control on. Now the Pakistan Govt says that they too are victims of the same terror, isn't it an irony that they are victims of their own doing? If you do not Know how to put off a fire don't start one, thats common sense. I blame the Indian Electorate because the constitution has given us the right to Vote and to choose of our own free will, but we Indians are the greatest fools on this earth. We time and again Vote for corrupt politicians based on Communal lines. Communal parties like the BJP should be banned. Their leaders have already started taking political mileage from this tragic situation. Such shameless creatures.

    I do agree with what Imtiaz Aslam has pointed out.
    terrorism has no language /religion.
    But one thing,in recent times,whatever terrorist attack has taken place,the names whichever the investigation sources have found,are all from pakistan soil.
    Its the failure of Pakistan Government that they are not being able to control the terrorism on their own soil.They are unable to control ISI and so that Laskar-taiba,jash-e-mohammad and the lsit goes on.
    Certainly,whatever shameem has earlier said,i know as i have few good muslim friends but its the strategy of ISI/Laskar-e-taiba to trigger to the fact that these current Militants are being raised from Indian Soil.
    And thast why Indian Muzahidin,Deccan Muzahidin and such names are roaming around.
    ISI and Laskar are the Main Culprits.And its Pakistan Government's Failure that they can not control these groups.

    Tejinder Gurm and all the people like u in India creates problems for all of us. What will you gain from blaming Pakistan time and again. I am amazed that within 24 hours of attacks all the Indian media is talking against Pakistan based on investigation reports. If the Indian forces were so efficient in digging out it would have not occurred in the first place. And we also have seen in the past when eventually the report comes out it points either to Al Qaeda or somewhere within India. And when that happens no channel or newspaper apologizes for wrong comments at the first place.

    Terrorism is terrorism be it bomb blasts in Marriot Hotel in Islamabad or Taj Hotel in Mumbai. Whats the difference in both these incidents? Nothing ... innocent blood is spread and innocent people die. Pakistan authorities could also have blamed India for Marriot Bomb Blasts. But whats the use of this blame game. Nothing, At the end of the day innocent people die and people like your thinking just fuels to enmity between the two countries and eventually people suffer at both end of the border.

    Shameen @ 11:53 pm,

    In case you are from India, you should also know that Bangladeshi muslim women who work as housemaids in Hindu homes, wear bindi on forehead and also wear bangles. Does that make them Hindu?

    It's all KARMA, it will definitely come back to the people responsible for such coward actions. Just a matter of time. Indians are brave enough they are facing these kind of events since centuries and they will face it again and again.

    why the hell certain media people in India are pointing finger at Pakistan. Pakistan is also a victom of terarrisim. You have no idea how much the Pakistani peoples hate them. We have concret evidence that f India have been supporting terarrist in Balochistan and the trible area and of Pakistan. We are also a victom of terrorsim, they media people should give true reporting of the incident instead of giving irresponsibile report, they should learn news-reporting from Pakistan.

    Solution for this
    Short term:. Send joint Indian/UN troops to places where we suspect militants are being trained such as Ind-Pak borders, Kashmir valley etc. (similar to NATO operations along the borders of Pakistan/Afghanistan)
    Mid term: Monitor where Pak govt spending their money (including IMF loans etc.) & Control/monitor the money that are flowing from rich muslim countries in the form of charity etc.
    Long-tem: Change the teachings in islamic schools that all God are same and all people are equal and brothers( just not only muslims) and monitor and control so called islamic preachers (their first message should be those who resort to violence/killing are NOT true muslim)

    Intelligence reports are suggesting that this was a well co-ordinated attack from Pakistan. Agreed that Pakistan govt is not necessarily supporting this but the fringe Islamist terrorists within ISI are doing this with help from petro dollars from a neighbouring Islamic state. The attack coincided with the arrest of hindu radicals and also 1 Islamic terrorist is seen wearing orange thread and appears in multiple videos/photos to give some kind of propaganda. It is carefully orchestrated strategy by Pakistani terrorists by killing Hemant Karkare. Reality is that these are carefully crafted intelligent muslim terrorists who are bent on dividing India's unity. The biggest danger to Islam is from muslim people who don't realise its very danger. Hindus, Muslims, Christians should unite to fight this evil. There are quite many patriotic muslmis in India's intelligence and armed forces who are instrumental in safeguarding India's security. People should unite and fight this evil. Muslims should realise that this danger exists instead of looking for other scapegoats and confront this evil head-on. Who else would kill innocent people with so much vengeance?

    Pakistan should provide as much information as possible. The terrorists took a boat from Karachi to Gateway of India. If Pakistan is really interested in routing out terrorism use this occasion to help provide India with all the info they have. Only then should US agree to fund Pakistan if they provide all the terrorist information

    The well co-ordination and using boats as to carry ammunition sophisticated weapon clearly demonstrate the hallmark foreign hand and training . This is clear big wake up call for India to take security as important priority and first thing it start with people of india to change the corrupt political system which all based on vote bank politics dividing people by caste , religion and put competent new blood in the government. With all happening i didnot see current incompetent Government putting Army , navy and airforce on hight alert on border.

    How these young men are brainwashed and turned into terrorists! They are certain to die, means they are ready to die! Do they take this decision themselves? No! someone have to brainwash them. But think, these young men if were not brainwashed would study and become responsible citizens.. Now they just die for nothing.. nothing they gain directly, they cannot bring any cchanges by this act! just they are wasting their own life for somebody else! or they are forced into this? one thing is that the peolele behind them are always safe and live a long life. but these young guys, just die like the rain insects very early just for nothing! pity.

    what is this world comin too i mean they look like us the regular ppl this new form of terrorism doesnt seem to have the rt face that once being osama bi laden and masked men trainin in camps to now being normal learned individuals? jus what is compelling them to fuel their desperation to such extremes that innocent lives are at risk. are we no longer safe in our own homeland or even our own house? are these the new face of terrorism? is there nothin that we the common man can do besides helplessly see "my home burn"

    I find Arun's comment particularly incisive. That is the sad truth of terrorism. In fact it is particularly pathetic that they do not know what aim they have. The ones with the 'grand plan' are the ones hiding in some mountain whilst the brainwashed sheep are out. It is cowardice.

    This brings us to thse pressing questions- are these people 'rational' actors with demands to begin with? Why are there even conditions favourable for such brainwashing to take place?

    On another note, everyone please do not bring your inter-state disputes into this matter. Terrorism knows no bounds certainly, but don't lump everything together. It is not logically or empirically sound and yes it is absolutely pathetic. People are dying, on ALL sides.

  19. Arun Bagga

    Ok, for your information... one of the terrorists did talk to India TV news channel about why they were attacking mumbai. According to his statement, they want all the mujahideens who are held in indian jails to be released. They also talked about muslims being tortured and not being allowed to live freely in some parts of india. He also went on to say that although he is from india (hyderabad) and he loves india, but still he wants to take revenge of the babri masjid issue and also the fact that the muslims are not being allowed to live freely.
    This is really bizarre considering that the attacks they carry out not just kill hindus but also a lot of muslims... they clearly dont belong to any religion...
    One very noticeable thing was when the News Channel asked the terrorist what their demand was... he told them to hold the line and was then asking the other terrorists about what their demand is... this clearly shows that the all these terrorists are people who have been clearly brainwashed by some uneducated mullah extremists... they don't have any clear motive of their own and instead of targeting the people who they are fighting against, they are killing innocent people.

    I can see a metal detector security gate. One of the alleged terrorists seems to be passing through the gate with a gun in hand! Where were the people manning the gateway?Why were these people not detained. The was was 2130. Peak time at hotels for diners? Yet no one stopped these men. Possibly they were mistaken for hotel security/local police?

    Mr. Tejinder Gurm, why you are pointing your finger at Pakistan. Pakistan is also a victom of terarrisim. You have no idea how much the Pakistani peoples hate them. Just for your information India have been supporting terarrist in the trible area of Pakistan, and then show off tho the world that they are inocents. If India leave Kashmeer alone and sit with their counterpart in Pakistand and help eachother to fight this Ulcer, Otherwise this will keep going and oneday Pakistan and India will go to war and then it will be too late to come back. We need to support the Young educated Muslims to fight this cancer. Rahter than pointing our finger at them....

    The biggest clue that this is a hindu radical group is that the orange thread in the terrorist hand which is worn by radical hindus. the guy with the gun and muslim are forbidden from wearing orange color . clothes or threads and fundamentalist will never wear saffron thread or bracelet in their hand or wrist that is the biggest clue this is the handi work of workers of the recently arrested col purohit, and himani siva ... and assocaites . any sensibel person whther hindu or muslim who has lived in INDIA knows this well.

    Again if an unknown organization says its responsible for this it needs to be questioned. and again without any further evidence muslims are blamed being blamed. And after investigation if it comes out somethin different it wont be publicized the way it is.

    US should work more strongly with Pakistan to stop these attacks in India and rest of the world .. All the guns and ammunition flows from Karachi ... US is trying to solve a terror problem spending billions of $$ of US Tax Payer money with very little actual results in the area .. India also should protect its borders more closely and also do a clean in its cities to identify the source of all these arms since arms are not allowed for general public to own or use.

    Terrorism, like business, has gone global even long time before the business was able to have a large scale globalization. We talk about business process outsourcing Al Quida is doing it in Terorism. It is the true clash of the evil vs. the good.

    Another aspect of targetting India could be the recent Nuclear deal between US and India though how this would affect the terrorists plans is only a guess.

    Please tell us you aren't so irresponsible to actually show real-time footage while discussing real-time counter-terror tactics. Terrorists as disciplined and well-coordinated as this group appears to be will be watching - if not from the hostage situations, then from elsewhere and communicating to those inside. In your pursuit of ratings, are you ignoring the potential for these guys to gain an advantage?

    the world will never learn, will they?? pakistan is a rogue state and USA should stop supporting it it. a few days back the IMF gave a 7 billion dollar loan to pakistan. Which will not be used for development but for terrorist activities. As an Indian im fed up with USA going soft on Pakistan. Such attacks will keep happening. The manmohan singh led congress government will lose the coming elections because they have failed to control terrorism and going soft on muslims because of the muslims votes. A humble request to G W Bush, please sort out Pakistan in your term as we have no faith in B Obama.

    Are these attacks in India in retaliation for the Indian warship destroying a Somali pirate mother ship recently. Are ransoms paid to pirates used to fund these attacks as well?

    It is events like this that truly makes it hard to find thankfulness in this insane society. So many inocent men and women die by gun justso others cano make a statement on their religous beliefs, or cultural morals. The funny think about this is that Jews, Christians, and Muslims all beleive in God and peace, and still we can get beyond the small differences that make us enlightened humane thinkers.

    Too bad CNN is without the courage to call these men Islamic terrorists or at least suspected Islamic terrorists on the main website. They are referred to repeatedly as "gunmen" as if this were a robbery gone bad. An Islamist group claimed responsibility and their conduct is consistent with Islamist terrorists. Use the term, speak the truth.
