The Indianisation of Jehad

I think we should stop pointing fingers at the western neighbor for all the blasts happening in the country. Its time we realized that home grown jehadis are carrying the job forward. Do check this report on the Outlook site, here.

"On July 5, 6 and 7 we held a meeting in a village near Ujjain. Ten people attended the meeting in a small hut, where it was decided unanimously to create a new terrorist group after much discussion held over three days. All ten members were young men who were born and grew up in India and had strongly felt that the Indian state and its democratic organs had failed to address their concerns. We discussed the fall of the Babri Masjid, the non-implementation of the Srikrishna report (on the 1993 Bombay riots) and the growing injustice against Muslims across the world."

was nabbed by the Indore police, this April.

An other article 'Birth of the Septic Fringe' on the same site, here, covers the rapidly growing educated-jihadi fringe on the Muslim population.

The Indian Muslim, it seems, can no longer be ‘in denial’. After the terror strikes on three Indian cities in three straight days, a great process of churning has begun in the community. In private, among themselves, in low tones with trusted friends, Muslims admit to a growing sense of unease and apprehension. They fear what is loosely referred to as "jehad" is now being practised by a small but lethal group of educated and radicalised Indian Muslim youth. Concrete proof is not the point: it’s a matter of feeling. Many Muslims believe there is more, and perhaps worse, to come"
