Mumbai Attacks, Hindu
Supremacists, and the War of Terror
By Mohammed Khaku

Recent Mumbai attacks were quite similar to 9/11, which were
preplanned, well organized and very professional and I as a Muslim
writer condemn unequivocally and in the strongest possible terms the
evil acts of terror in financial capital of India, Mumbai. Targeted
victimization of innocents has no justification and American Muslims
stand with our fellow citizens of all faiths in repudiating acts of
The unjustifiable disregard for innocent lives and the
devastating destruction caused by such senseless acts of violence is an
outrage. There can be no excuse or justification for such brutal acts.
No religion permits violence on innocent lives and equally no religion
should be blamed for the violence carried out by individuals.
Muslims of Lehigh Valley and myself express our deepest sympathies and
sincere condolences to the loved ones of those killed or injured in
these senseless and inexcusable acts of violence against innocent
civilians. I am confident that the diverse communities of India will
work together in harmony to prevent the nation from descending into
India has always prides itself on being a
democracy, yet has worst human rights record. Over past few years India
has been gradually relapsing into religious extremism and numerous
separatist movement have mushroomed due to the official patronage to
In last 60 years Muslim, Sikh, Dalits and
Christian minorities in India have been treated so badly by the Hindu
Supremacists that fibber of the country is going to fall apart sooner or
later and United States is partially responsible for letting the growth
of Indian (not Hindu) terrorism – with its mix of Hindu, Muslim, Sikh,
Christian and ethnic insurgencies – go unnoticed for so many years. This
cocktail mix of wrong policies will break India in numerous parts based
on religion and ethnicity.
Indian rulers should gaze on their
own country and the conditions that prevail; the Hindu militant,
separatist movement and economic disparities are profound and coming
together to destabilized India. While there is a vigorous debate between
those forces within Indian establishment who want to take India towards
the dangerous and suicidal US-Zionist Israel nexus and those who want to
India to stay independent and have good relations with Pakistan, China,
Russia and Iran.
I see the Mumbai bombings seem to be the
desperate move of the separatist and supremacists who want to blame
everything on 'Muslims' but also want to enjoy the full benefits?
However, the three main beneficiaries of the so-called war on terror
apart from defense industry are WE (US), Israel and India? All three
countries have killed innocent people in the name of counter terrorism
and all three have occupied lands of millions of Muslims in Iraq,
Kashmir and Palestine. And this time, President Elect Barack Obama will
NOT ask the country like Pakistan;”are you with us or against us"
because the target this time is Pakistan itself.
