Fresh Blood From an Old Wound

I came across the following article from the NY Times and here are some snippets which support my claim that the crimes of Mumbai bombings are a product of oppression and politics. The article is from the NY Times (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/02/opinion/02mishra.html)

“MIDWAY through last week’s murderous rampage in Mumbai, one of the suspected gunmen at the besieged Jewish center called a popular Indian TV channel. Speaking in Urdu (the primary language of Pakistan and many Indian Muslims), he ranted against the recent visit of an Israeli general to the Indian-ruled section of the Kashmir Valley. Referring to the Pakistan-backed insurgency in the valley, and the Indian military response to it, he asked, “Are you aware how many people have been killed in Kashmir?””

“In a separate phone call, another gunman invoked the oppression of Muslims by Hindu nationalists and the destruction of the Babri Mosque in Ayodhya in 1992.”

“The idea that the road to stability in South Asia goes through Kashmir is as persuasive as the notion that the path to peace in the Middle East goes through Jerusalem.”

All of the actions were done for RETALIATION not for Islam. Oppression breeds such behavior in any place in any time. I am by no means trying to justify this terrible crime; I am just try to analyze it.
