The Sept. 8 2006 blasts at a mosque in Malegaon, was conducted by a newly formed Hindu terrorist outfit, named "Abhinav Bharat"...and not by muslims terrorists...the others mentioned here are correct though. The most fascinating thing is that an officer of the Indian Army, most probably of a lt. colonel rank, and a retd. major of the Army, was the ,mastermind of the terrorist has sparked a debate in the Indian Media on whether it is a natural backlash of the Hindus against ages of Islamic terrorism, or is it an erosion of the morals of a secular country and the encroach of terrorist mindset in its Army.
