Bomb Blasts In India - 1
Hmm.. So it's all lawyers' fault.... <!--emo&:blink:--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/blink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='blink.gif' /><!--endemo-->
I won't be surprised, Congress hand in these incidence.
Central government is working towards destabilizing non congress state government in India by appeasing Muslims. The monsters they had created will bite them first.
absolutely. another local factor is mayawatis popularity. she has taken strong steps to undo the criminal raj of mulayam singh. She has also emerged as a popular leder with mass base. finally someone has appeared in UP after decades of mess, who can claim to be popular in all castes. As a pleasant surprise BSP slogan Jai Bheem has now been replaced by her in the last months massive rally by 'jai bheem jai bharat'. She has also kicked the cong and SP by suggesting UP be at least trifurcated. all this is too much for cong and mulayam singh. Govt has also come down heavy on hardline mullas.

<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin--><b>UP safe haven for terrorists </b>
KPS Gill
A series of widely dispersed but very well coordinated explosions, within minutes of each other, at the courts in Lucknow, Varanasi and Faizabad in Uttar Pradesh come as another reminder, within a long and continuing series of such reminders scattered across the length and breadth of the country, of the dangers of terrorism and India's inability to respond coherently, proportionately and with sustained institutional commitment.

With only very preliminary information available on the blasts at the time of writing, it is premature to attempt to arrive at any definitive identification of the organisations behind this latest outrage. Just before the blasts, several news organisations received e-mails, purportedly from the 'Indian Mujahideen', claiming responsibility for the bombings. The organisation is unknown, and would probably be a front for one or more of the better-established outfits that are known to have been operating in the State -- particularly Lashkar-e-Tayyeba, Jaish-e-Mohammed, Harkat-ul-Jihad Islami and Students Islamic Movement of India.

In the immediate aftermath of the latest blasts, a wide range of questions are once again being raised regarding motives for the attack, the choice of targets, the timing, etc. It must be clear that authoritative answers to these questions will have to wait till investigations secure demonstrable successes. What is immediately apparent, however, is that this incident is only the latest in an ongoing series; that, <b>over just the past three years, major terrorist strikes have been engineered by Pakistan-backed groups in Delhi, Bangalore, Ayodhya, Mumbai, Varanasi, Hyderabad, Malegaon, Panipat ('Samjhauta Express'), Ajmer and Ludhiana, with lesser attacks at a number of other locations; that India is failing to contain the menace of Islamist terrorism; and, the state and its leadership cannot evade responsibility for this failure</b>.

It is useful, in this context, to recall that the then outgoing Supreme Court Chief Justice, Mr RC Lahoti, had specially noted, on October 31, 2005, the nation's success in "wiping out terrorism from Punjab", and had insisted that "the Punjab experience could be repeated in other parts of the country". <b>He squarely blamed the "lack of political will" for the continuous growth of terrorism in India, in contrast to other countries, such as the UK and the US, which reacted with swift determination after the first major strikes, so that "no further incidents of terrorism took place"</b>.

Uttar Pradesh is a particularly glaring example in this context. Vote-bank politics has given free rein to Islamist forces, and politicians have repeatedly interfered in actions against those who have facilitated the extremist-terrorist entrenchment in the State. Senior police officials in the State have constantly warned against the rising dangers, but such officers have often been hounded by the political executive for doing their duty. As many as 34 of Uttar Pradesh's 70 districts are identified as 'sensitive' in terms of Pakistan-backed Islamist terrorist activities. The South Asia Terrorism Portal has recorded at least 57 incidents of 'terrorist subversion' in the State between April 2001 and November 2007.

A UP Police Report in November 2006 indicated that the State had emerged as one of the "major centres of the activities of the ISI and its proxy terrorist groups in India", and that ISI-trained terrorist modules had infiltrated a number of cities and small towns in the State. Political parties have, nevertheless, found it expedient to protect the constituencies where this terrorist mobilisation is occurring. Significantly, then Chief Minister Mulayam Singh Yadav repeatedly spoke out in support of SIMI, particularly at the time when the issue of the renewal of the Union Government's ban against this organisation was brought up in the Supreme Court.

Uttar Pradesh is, of course, not unique in this, and the '<b>Marxists' of West Bengal have been just as eager to appease a violent Islamist constituency, as was most recently evident in their response to the orchestrated demonstrations against dissident Bangladeshi writer Taslima Nasreen in Kolkata, which the State inexplicably failed to prevent or contain, requiring the deployment of the Army in the city's streets. The Bengal Marxists have also long denied the creeping demographic invasion of illegal Bangladeshi migrants into the State, preferring to exploit this captive vote-bank rather than protect national security interests</b>.

Which is <span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'>what the Congress has done for decades in India's North-East. More recently, the party gave tickets to former terrorists in the Punjab Assembly election. In Hyderabad, in the wake of the Mecca Masjid bombings, disclosures indicated that the police were actively prevented from taking action against Islamist terrorists, and some prominent extremists who had been arrested were released under political pressure. </span>

As is invariably the case after a major terrorist attack, parties in Opposition have sought to make political hay after the latest serial blasts, speaking in sweeping generalisations about intelligence and policing failures. There is, of course, a tremendous failure underlying such incidents and the growth of Islamist and other brands of terrorism in the country; but it is the failure of the intelligence of the national political leadership, not the failure of the 'intelligence establishment' or the police.

Indeed, and this is a point that cannot be sufficiently emphasised, <span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'>the nation's intelligence and police organisations are doing an exemplary job, given their colossal deficits of capacity and the constant obstruction of their work by unscrupulous and corrupt politicians blinded by their electoral ambitions. </span>Uttar Pradesh has a bare 94 policemen per 100,000 population, as against a national average of 143. International norms prescribe a minimum of about 250 policemen per 100,000, and some Western countries have ratios approaching 500/100,000. Indian policemen, moreover, operate under abysmal working conditions, with little technical support, the poorest possible facilities and resources, rudimentary training, excessive working hours, and constant interference and abuse by politicians.

These are aspects that are well known, and have been documented by committee after committee at the Centre and in the States. But no Government is willing to act adequately and effectively to correct these deficiencies, with 'too little, too late' being the norm of the ad hoc augmentations that occur periodically. It should be abundantly clear, however, that unless counter-terrorism is placed out of the ambit of opportunistic electoral politics, and unless the security forces, intelligence agencies and administrations are adequately manned, equipped and empowered to deal with extremists and terrorists in accordance with stringent laws, within an efficient system of justice administration, terrorist attacks will continue to occur with sickening regularity, and with near impunity.

I have lost count of the # of blasts and other terrorist attacks ever since the UPA came to power, it must have crossed 20 by now. As for the people, just look at some of these comments:

Everyone is shocked with this news and this should not happen again in such beautiful and well planned city. If its a political drama then shame on the involoved politicians who are ruining India. Lets pray GOD to show them right path. - Mohit Agarwal -  Jaipur <!--QuoteEnd--><!--QuoteEEnd-->
These are the "educated" elite with access to the net, most other comments are similar, no understanding of the ideology behind this or their aims, just the usual sentimentalist nonsense about prayers or blaming some nebulous category called "politicians".

If this is the situation with the elite, imagine the ignorance among the illiterate people, if this had happened in the US you will be hearing calls for justice, and intense scrutiny of American Muslims, but in Bharat by tomorrow everyone will be back to chai, pakora, cricket, saas bahu serial lifestyle and everything goes on the same way till the next big blast.

Oh, and I almost forgot, by tomorrow u will be hearing about the "spirit of Jaipur" and how Jaipur bounced back bla bla bla.
Illiterate Indians had better understanding, problem is with these Mirchi channel generation who are more on hip-hop bandwagon. Till someone very close to them are not in victim list they will rather watch Cricket match on TV then thinking about ideology or victims.
Look at Moron Singh lead government, run by impotent ba**ard. They are shameless spineless morons. These guys want weak Army, strong Islamic terrorist, create another wing of Jihadi by Sachar commission, destroy temples and Hindus. Why God is also sleeping? Do us some favor.

For count we are keeping timeline thread.- Just check every three months for blast. Standard ritual by Indian Islamist to attack Hindus.
In other countries people march, demonstrate, protest against the government for allowing terrorism to happen. Our psecs are too busy praising fartists who paint nude pictures of godesses.

I hope the whole Maino family along with that eunuch puppet, as well as Yechury, "Rajashekhar Reddy" etc are tied in a jute bag and the bag is dumped off the pier (after tying the bag to a 314 kg stone, that is: I am sure these lightweigts have enough hot air in them to keep them afloat without the stone).
Is there a link between terror strikes in Jammu and Jaipur?
Prez, VP and PM condemn the blast

Within 10mins they blamed HuJi, link with Pakistan. Very soon they will blame BD. Till these moron blame others and go back to sleep, we will see these type of attacks every three months.
Its shows Monorn SIngh government is not interested in protecting citizens, his concern his to protect his own family and one those live in 10Janapath, rest go to hell.
In pictures: Jaipur bombings
<!--QuoteBegin-->QUOTE<!--QuoteEBegin--><b>Pink city turns red, 70 dead </b>
Lokpal Sethi | Jaipur
7 blasts in 15 minutes at crowded places in Jaipur; HuJI hand suspected
In one of the worst terrorist attacks, seven powerful bomb blasts rocked the Pink City, killing at least 70 people and injuring another 200 on Tuesday evening. Among the killed were about a dozen women.

The death toll is likely to go up as the condition of some of the injured is stated to be serious.
The serial bomb blasts took place in the crowded walled city around 7.30 pm, the peak shopping time in this business district of the State capital.

<b>It appeared that Hawa Mahal, the landmark of Jaipur, and the temples in this 300-year-old city, were the main targets of the terrorists, who are yet to be identified.</b>

<span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'>Being Tuesday, the turnout in these temples was larger than usual. Moreover, it was aarti time in these temples when the blasts occurred. </span>

<b>The first bomb exploded near Chandpole temple. Within 15 minutes, six blasts one after the other rocked Chhoti Chaupar, Tripolia Bazaar, Badi Chaupar and Jauhari Bazaar. All these places are within a few hundred yards from the State police headquarters. In fact, two blasts took place close to Manak Chowk (Badi Chaupar) and Chhoti Chaupar police stations. </b>

Manak Chowk is located close to the Hawa Mahal. An old temple is also located here. The last of these serial blasts took place near Hanuman temple at Sanganer Gate, which is the entrance to the Jauhari Bazaar.

According to initial reports,<b> the bomb that exploded near Hanuman temple was kept in a car, whereas the other bombs were either kept in the dickeys of the scooters or on the bicycles</b>. Soon after the blasts, a<b> bomb disposal squad detected three live bombs and defused them</b>.

Police said RDX might have been used in these bombs, which were fitted with timers and triggered by a remote control.

<b>The bomb that exploded near a well-known restaurant in Jauhari Bazaar was so powerful that one of the dead was flown off to the other side of the road</b>. Many vehicles, including cars and scooters, were damaged in all the three markets. Electric polls in Jauhari Bazaar were either blown over or bent vertically. The entire Jauhari Bazaar was littered with blood and flesh as three bombs had exploded on this very road at a distance of a few hundred yards of each other.

Though police suspect the hand of Bangladesh-based HuJI behind the attack, it is yet to find any link between the blasts and this outfit. Since nearby Ramganj area in the walled city is dominated by Muslims, a large number of police contingents have been deployed there to avoid any untoward incident.

<b>Meanwhile, State unit of the Vishwa Hindu Parishad has given the call for Rajasthan bandh against this terrorist attack.</b>

Governor SK Singh and Home Minister Gulab Chand Kataria visited the areas soon after the explosions. Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje, who was away in Jodhpur, reached here late in the night after cutting short her visit. She also spoke to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and gave details of the incident.

It is for the first time that Jaipur has been targeted by the terrorists. Scores of wounded people were taken to several hospitals soon after the blasts near Hanuman temple.

Rajasthan Director General of Police AS Gill said it was "obviously a terror attack." Police sources said the attack was meticulously planned.

In New Delhi, the Union Home Ministry reviewed the situation as Mumbai and Delhi were put on high alert.

Rapid Action Force (RAF) personnel were deployed in Jaipur to help deal with the situation as security was stepped up in the city.

The injured were rushed to Sawai Man Singh hospital, it was reported.

The blasts triggered a near-stampede situation at the blast sites crammed with peak-hour shoppers as panic-stricken people ran helter-skelter in search of a safe place. The emergency ward at the Sawai Man Singh Hospital was splattered with blood as scores of dead and injured lay there.

<b>60 killed as terror hits Jaipur </b>

Jaipur, May 13: Eight bomb blasts triggered by terrorists over just 12 minutes on Wednesday night killed at least 60 people in the heart of Jaipur and injured 200.

The explosions, the first terror strikes in the Pink City, occurred in markets usually teeming with people and near the Hanuman Mandir in the walled city. The bombings took place as India marked the 10th anniversary of nuclear tests conducted on May 13 in Rajasthan, but it was unclear if there was any link.

“According to the information I have received, 60 people have died and 150 have been injured,” said the Rajasthan chief minister, Ms Vasundhara Raje. <b>The Bangladesh-based Har-kat-ul-Jehad-al-Islami (HuJI) is suspected to be behind the blasts, home ministry sources said</b>. The sources ruled out the use of RDX in the carefully orchestrated low-intensity explosions, which were suspected to have been set off from cycles in areas frequented by tourists, including near the historic Hawa Mahal.

The blasts took place at Tripolia Bazar, Johari Bazar, Manas Chowk, Badi Choupal and Choti Choupal, all located within a two-km radius in the old city. Inspector-general of police (Jaipur) Pankaj Singh said in all there were eight blasts, a couple of them in the same area. <b>The police said one explosive device was defused by the bomb disposal squad near the Hanuman temple.</b>

One of the blasts took place in a car and another near a handloom shop in Kotwali area of the city, home department sources said. Most of the injured were rushed to Sawai Man Singh hospital. The bodies of several victims lay strewn in the corridors of hospitals. The blasts triggered a near-stampede situation at the blast sites, which were crammed with peak-hour shoppers as panic-stricken people ran helter-skelter in search of a safe place.

Doctors said many of the victims of Tuesday’s blasts had shrapnel injuries. They feared that the toll may rise further. The bomb explosions left blood splattered on the street and cycles and rickshaws in a mangled heap, television showed. “It’s a terror attack. There was no (intelligence) report of this,” the Rajasthan director-general of police, Mr A.S. Gill, told reporters.

<b>The Prime Minister, Dr Manmohan Singh, condemned the blasts and appealed for calm</b>. Jaipur, which has a population of more than two million, is one of the nation’s top tourist resorts and a favourite attraction for foreigners. State borders were sealed and a high alert sounded in Rajasthan state and neighbouring areas, the police said. They said there were no immediate reports of any backlash. “There is peace in the town. Nobody should worry,” Arvind Jain, a senior police official, told NDTV. The US ambassador to Delhi, Mr David Mulford, condemned the attacks, saying, “There can be no possible justification for the murderous attack on innocent people.”

The Centre rushed the bomb data squad of the National Security Guard (NSG) to Jaipur. The Union Home Ministry reviewed the situation. The bomb blasts came eight months after terrorists struck at Ajmer, killing two persons. The blasts triggered panic and a stampede-like situation amid allegations by Opposition parties that there was a total intelligence failure. IPL chief Lalit Modi said a league match scheduled to be played in Jaipur on Saturday will go on as planned. Rapid Action Force (RAF) personnel were deployed in Jaipur to help deal with the situation as security was beefed up.

Meanwhile, the ministry of home affairs on Tuesday night declared a nationwide alert. <b>The home ministry advisory asked all states to be “extra vigilant” where crowded areas are concerned and ensure that “advantage is not taken of the situation”. </b> <!--emo&:blink:--><img src='style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/blink.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='blink.gif' /><!--endemo-->
