Mumbai

Yesterday, Tuesday the 11th of July, while driving to work, I heard the news on the radio - about a series of train bombings killing hundreds of people in Mumbai (upto 200 on the 13th).

All I could think of at that time was... "not again!".

In 2003, more than 55 people died in twin bomb blasts. In 1993, around 250 people died and nearly 1,000 were injured in a series of bomb explosions in the same city.

Emailed a few of my friends working there but haven't received a reply from any one as yet. Not sure whether they travelled by train to their places of work.

My prayers goes out for those who perished in those blasts and their families.

Islamic militant groups fighting Indian rule in Kashmir are the main suspects. However, two of the more famous, viz., Lashkar-e-Toiba and Hizb-ul-Mujahideen, have denied any involvement in the blasts.

Whoever it was, hope those bastards go to hell straightaway.

hi adam! responding to hyelbaine: maybe u mean "moderation"? dunno if that's the word u were looking for. either way - it all depends on who's preaching. The Islam of Osama bin Laden is different than the Islam of Mahathir Mohamad which is different than the Islam of that Nik guy in Kelantan... but all say they are Muslims... how?

Thanks for the comments hyelbaine, Lynne. I wonder about that all the time. Killing innocent people is wrong FULLSTOP.
