‘Sparks Muslim-Hindu fighting’- really? But did it?
Hyderabad happens to be the center of the Indian computer industry. The global jihad had its spies there a while ago to check it out. Could it be a Muslim on Muslim attack just to get the jihad going?

A bomb ripped through a historic mosque Friday in southern India, and 14 people were killed â€“ 10 in the blast and four in subsequent clashes between angry Muslim worshippers and security forces, police said.
The bombing, which also wounded at least 35 people, and clashes raised fears of wider Hindu-Muslim violence in the city, long plagued by communal tensions and occasional spasms of inter-religious bloodletting.
Many of the 35 people wounded were seriously hurt, and the city’s police chief, Balwinder Singh, warned the death toll could rise.
There are an estimated 130 million Muslims in India, a country of 1.1 billion people. Authorities across India were told to be alert for any signs of Hindu-Muslim fighting, and top officials called for calm.

* It seems indeed that Muslims bombed the mosque in order to get Hyderabads Muslims all fired up for the jihad against the Hindus, an often applied strategy:
Bangladesh-based terror group Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami (HuJI) on Saturday emerged as the prime suspect in the blast at the Mecca Masjid in Hyderabad as investigators claimed to have made a breakthrough with the recovery of a SIM card from a phone attached to an unexploded bomb.
Eleven people were killed in the explosion that occurred during Friday prayers while five more died when police fired on protesters who attacked shops and petrol pumps in the communally sensitive Charminar area.
Home Minister Shivraj Patil and Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy, who both went to the mosque and visited the injured, said they were not averse to a CBI probe into the terrorist attack.
From the Business Standard
Targeted killing of Muslims by jihadi terrorist organisations of pan-Islamic and Wahabi orientation is not a new phenomenon. One has seen many instances of such killings in Pakistan itself, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Somalia, Algeria, J&K in India, Bangladesh, and in southern Thailand. In the past, such attacks were directed at Muslims belonging to different sects (Shias vs Sunnis as in Pakistan and Iraq), Muslims, who were perceived as apostate because of theirÂ co-operation with the US and with pro-US Islamic regimes, Muslims who were suspected to be spies of the intelligence agencies and moderate Muslim political leaders, who opposed the ideology of the jihadi terrorists.
In the last one year, one has been seeing a new trend in the countries affected by jihadi terrorism. Jihadi terrorist organisations have been targeting Muslims, who are not prepared to accept Wahabism and the pan-Islamic objective of an Islamic Caliphate. Of all the countries in Asia having a large Muslim population, the maximum resistance to Wahabism and the pan-Islamic objectives has been from the Muslim community in India, which is the second largest in the world after Indonesia.
