India has been under a heightened state of alert over the hanging of Mohammed Afzal Guru, a Kashmiri militant killed nearly two weeks ago. He was executed for his involvement in a 2001 attack on India's parliament that killed 14 people, including five gunmen. Since the execution, near-daily protests have rocked Indian-ruled Kashmir, where many people believe Guru did not receive a fair trial. Anger in a region where anti-India sentiment runs deep was further fuelled by the secrecy with which the execution was carried out.

Hyderabad: Abdul Wasey Marzey, 23, is at the Yashoda hospital in Hyderabad, being treated for rib and leg injuries. He was injured in the blasts that ripped through the city's congested Dilsukhnagar area last evening. This is not the first time that Mr Marzey has been injured in a terror strike. In 2007, when he was 18, he was hurt in the leg in the blast at Hyderabad's Mecca masjid, which killed 17 people. Source NDTVPam Geller, Atlas Shrugs:
It is not a bomb blast in Hyderabad. It is pure Jihad. Muslims are exhorted by Islam to keep fighting till the rule of Allah is established in India. Muslims have already taken in 1947 one third of India from Hindus by force. Now they are planning to take two third of India from Hindus. Hindus made a blunder that they did not send all the Muslims to Pakistan or Bangladesh. Now Muslims will not allow Hindus to live in peace till they enslave them again...
Two bomb blasts in Hyderabad today in which 13 people are dead and 70 injured are a part of the supremacist pan-Islamic movement which is guided by Quranic concepts of war to dominate entire world and establish Islamic Caliphate. They use multi-pronged methods to achieve their aim. Some of them indulge in terrorist activities. Others support them financially and politically. Some act as their front organizations. Some of them use selfish and mean Hindu leaders endowed with myopic vision like Mulayam Singh Yadav, Lalu Praad Yadav, Mumta Banerjee and others to advance the cause of Islam.
The dangerous variety among them are the Muslims who pretend to be secular but tacitly side with their co-religionists. In order to hoodwink naïve Hindus, they, once in a while write articles and issue statements in national newspapers against Islamic fundamentalists to give the impression that they are neutral. But in fact they are playing Al Taquia, the Islamic doctrine which mandates Muslims to use subterfuge and chicanery to lie and cheat infidels (Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, Christians, Jews, etc). In reality, they are wolves in sheep’sclothing. Be aware of them.Terresa Monroe Hamilton at Noisy Room is also writing about this "Islamic Coup," "Peace be upon Him," and all that."
