Die bisher ausführlichste Analyse der Geschehnisse von Mumbai im Long Wars Journal:
– eine Spur führt nach Pakistan (Karatschi)
– es handelt sich um einen Wechsel der Taktik von Selbstmordattentaten zu komplexen militärischen Aktionen gegen „soft targets“
– monatelanges Training war notwendig, um die Aktion vorzubereiten
One of the terrorists phoned a news station demanding jihadis be released from jail in exchange for prisoners. „We want all Mujahideens held in India released and only after that we will release the people,“ a man named Sahadullah told a media outlet. „Release all the Mujahideens, and Muslims living in India should not be troubled.“
Another terrorist named Imran phoned a TV station and spoke in Urdu in what is believed to be a Kashmiri accent. „Ask the government to talk to us and we will release the hostages,“ he said. „Are you aware how many people have been killed in Kashmir? Are you aware how your army has killed Muslims. Are you aware how many of them have been killed in Kashmir this week?“
The Indian Mujahideen has taken credit for several recent mass-casualty attacks in India. The group claimed credit for the July 25 and 26 bombings in Ahmedabad and Bangalore. At least 36 Indians were killed and more than 120 were wounded in the attacks. The Indian Mujahideen took credit for the Sept. 13 attacks in New Delhi that resulted in 18 killed and more than 90 wounded. The group also claimed credit for the bombings in Jaipur last May (60 killed, more than 200 wounded), and bombings in Uttar Pradesh in November 2007 (14 killed, 50 wounded).
In several of those attacks, an Indian Mujahideen operative who calls himself „Arbi Hindi“ e-mailed the media to claim responsibility. Arbi Hindi’s real name is Abdul Subhan Qureshi, an Indian national who is believed to be behind many of the recent terror attacks inside India. Qureshi, a computer expert, is beleived to have trained hundreds of recruits to conduct terror attacks in India. He is often called India’s Osama bin Laden.
Indian intelligence believes the Indian Mujahideen is a front group created by the Lashkar-e-Taiba and the Harkat ul Jihad al Islami.
