    The thread is not and I hope the article is not too.. There can never be any justification for terrorist activities. I hoped it was an attempt on some introspection on the rise of home grown Islamic terrorism (other then the Kashmiri terrorism).

    As pointed out by many posters, the ones chosen by the author may not be the only reason. Sometimes vote bank politics by different political parties also paved way in alienation of some section of the minorities.

    I started this thread for a genuine discussion and hoped people will come with ways to remove the menace from India. Unlike the hope & wish of some extreme right wingers, these section of Muslims of India (along with other neglected sections like the tribals who took up naxalism/ north-eastern populace etc.) will have to FULLY integrated into the greater Indian population in order to achieve a real development & progress. The wind of development will have to touch them too, other-wise the bitterness is not likely to go away.

    The practice of having separate colonies for Hindus & Muslims will have to discouraged & removed if we are to remove the mental partition between the two communities (which many will not agree, but it does exist).

    Lets assume that this introspection is much needed, but my question is when all these bombing and supporting other country within the borders of India will stop???
    When will the minorities will introspect themselves about their own even if very few loose points?
    Dont you think it would have been better if all Indian's should stop thinking like Minority or majority instead Indian??

    I appreciate your thinking but.......
    Do you ever visited aligarh or muzaffarnagar which is in UP? In that Hindu people's haterness against muslim is so much high that you can't believe.

    The point is terrorism can't be done by the diwali crackers or by toy guns. I think it the failure of MHA in this matter. Take a example of Mumbai blast, how the militants get the ammonium nitrate, even this substace is regulated by the ministry. These substance are not smuggled from the Pak, they are getting these substance through indian factories by giving some money.

    And I want to add furthur that militancy in a region can't be evolved without a foreign help. The ministry is not giving them aid and weapons, there is some foreign material also in our country.

    it is true that muslim terrorism in india arose after babri demolition & riots which followed. further incidents like gujrat added fuel to the fire. further hindu terrorism arose due to constant attacks by muslim terrorists. so if we look at terrorism history in india then it is all linked up & a bit complicted.

    It is patently wrong and misguiding to say that Islamic extremism in India owes its root cause to Babri or Ayodhya. It was just one of the many reasons, not even the main reason.

    There are many loonies who believe in the theories of infidels, Caliphates etc. and these kinda Wahhabi idealogues are especially rising in Kerala directly funded through Saudi channels.

    Kashmiri insurgency (the main reason IMO) backed by ISI/PA played a huge role in the rise of Islamic extremism sponsored through the likes of LeT/JeM etc which sought struggle against "Hindu" India which was occupying "Muslim" Kashmir. When the Govt went after them these groups started forming Indian fronts like Al-Umma (Now extinct), SIMI and now the IM. These movements now started using the home grown causes like Babri,Gujarat etc for getting more sympathy and funds as the Indian Muslims had previously rejected their earlier original cause of liberation of Kashmir though terrorism in mainland India.

    Actually Babri happened after the Shah Bano case and the Kashmiri Pandit ethnic cleansing in Kashmir and the treatment meted out to them by the Indian Govt.

    1.Why do people resort to militancy, insurgency, armed uprising, etc? It is not because of what faith he belongs to. It is because he is deprived economically, socially and politically. People want access to equal education, jobs, healthcare and all facilities that the the state provides. If one feel deprived or wronged in favor of another then Maoists and others crop up.

    2. I suppose the purpose of starting this thread is to find ways of eliminating militancy. To that end the State of India must look into the genuine grievances and reasons that drive men and women to militancy. No one wants to kill or die. There must be compelling reasons driving one to that end. Clashing with the militant often cause collateral death/destruction adding to the cause of the militants.

    Add to that list; the Ratha yatra of Advani. Before 1993 baring J&K, India has not faced any Islamic terror activity.
