Source of Islamist Terrorism in India

leave a comment »

1. How many terrorists were indian muslims between 1950 and 1991?

2. How many terror incidents were related to Muslims between 1994 and 2001?

3. What could be the reasons for a spike in terror incidents attributed (rightly or wrongly) to indian muslims since 2002?

Answer: Islamist terrorism, at an all India scale, started with Babri Masjid demolition (December 1992) and subsequent massacre of Muslims. It got momentum after the Gujarat genocide (2002). Thus the starting point of any coverage or discussion on Islamist terrorism should be the trajectory of these acts. The discussions, however, start with the Madrasas, radicalisation of the Muslim youth by organisations like SIMI, funding by foreign nationals, etc. ..Islamist terrorism is, in fact, a reaction to communal fascism of RSS, VHP, BJP etc

The solution to the menace lies in our deep commitment to secularism
