Mumbai terrorist attacks against Westerners

This does look bad.

I think the initial news reports are very understated and misleading.

Looks like a huge Al-Qaeda type attack against Westerners, potentially killing whole hotel populations.

What's your point? Western media initially reported this something like "Bomb blast kills 12 Indians in Mumbai". Nothing could be further from the truth, we'll find when it is over.

118 dead, with perhaps 500...many bodies feared cremated or hidden. Hindi intolerance of Christianity has surfaced since the election of this [...what's it's designation?: BJP...] However, the Christian Faith is old, there.] "Monkees on a stick" <--the derisive epithet.

The Hindu extremists are "justifying" the massacre of Christians by accusing them of the killing of their leader, Swami Lakshamanananda Saraswati, on August 23, although responsibility for this has been claimed by the Maoists. Two days afterward, the worst anti-Christian violence in recent Indian history broke out, in 14 of the 30 districts in the state.
...this has been happening for some time...although the Maoists took credit for the assassination.

Christians are just carrying the brunt. An established minority...leftover hatred of the British, perhaps?

Re: Mumbai terrorist attacks against Westerners

MUMBAI, India (AP) - A media report says a little-known group, the Deccan Mujahideen, has claimed responsibility for the Mumbai terrorist attacks.

The Press Trust of India news agency said Thursday the group sent emails to several media outlets.

Teams of heavily armed gunmen attacked a crowded train station in southern Mumbai and Leopold's restaurant, a well-known Mumbai landmark, along with the two hotels and a police station.

Officials say at least 78 people were killed and another 200 wounded. In addition, the attackers were holding hostages Thursday morning.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

MUMBAI, India (AP)—A top police official says gunmen are holding hostages at two luxury Mumbai hotels after opening fire on a crowded Mumbai train station, hotels and a restaurant popular with tourists.

A.N. Roy, a senior police officer in Mumbai, says the hostages are being held at the Taj Mahal and Oberoi hotels.
