Terrorist Bombings in New Delhi

3 powerful bomb explosions ripped through New Delhi’s market, where thousands had been shopping for the coming Diwali (Deepavali) and Eid al-Fitr (Hari Raya Puasa) festivals. 55 died while more than 100 were wounded.

The perpetrators are still unknown but the usual suspects would be Pakistani backed Islamist terrorists or Sikh separatists, though with today’s India in the camp of the USA, who knows what other terrorist groups it would have attracted by its new political alignment.

Pakistan has condemned the attacks but I doubt India believes its sincerity.

India has put major cities like Mumbai (Bombay) on alert.
