"In February 2010, a specific advisory was given regarding the Sheetla Ghat. Nobody can expect a more specific input. It is the duty of every state government to provide security," the home minister told reporters in Varanasi.

Please go ahead, I am sure there are a lot of important people reading this page.
1) State up front that the idea that Muslims cannot live among Hindus was the same idea that created Pakistan
2) It is the same idea that is being used by terrorist groups like the Let and HUJI with state support from Pakistan
3) It is the same idea that is being spouted by the so called "Indian mujahideen"
4) Terrorism by Islamic groups in India is directly linked to the idea that created Pakistan
5) Support to Pakistan from the USA and other nations is directly against Indian interests and directly contribute to terrorism in India.

Police clueless about nature of explosive

A day after a terror attack killed a minor girl in Varanasi, the Uttar Pradesh Police was Wednesday clueless about the nature of explosives that struck terror on the bank of the Ganga.
"We have not found any circuit, battery, remote-control device, shrapnel or splinters from the blast site. We are not able to ascertain the nature of explosives and the mechanism of the blast," Additional Director General of Police Brij Lal told reporters here.
"Whatever remnants we have got are being examined by forensic experts and central agencies. It is only later that we will be able to confirm the nature of the explosives," said Lal.
He added that the Anti-Terrorist Squad would carry out the probe into the blast that till now was being conducted by the district police.
He said a total of 31 people injured in the blast were still being treated in various hospitals in Varanasi.
"While a girl (Swastika Sharma) died, 36 people were injured in the blast and the subsequent stampede. I have learnt that several people received injures from stone chips that hit them. The stone chips were probably from the cemented structures set up along the ghats," said Lal.
Asked if police had found any evidence of the Indian Mujahideen's involvement, Lal said: "At present, we have not found the involvement of any organisation, module, individual that can be linked to the blast.
"I would like to stress on the fact that till now no one has been detained or arrested."
The blast took place Tuesday evening when hundreds were watching the 'maha aarti' - when devotees float numerous earthen lamps on the river.
Pak's Bhatkal brothers behind blasts: Mum PoliceDecember 08, 2010 9:00:04 PM
IANS | Mumbai
Riyaz and Iqbal Bhatkal of terror group Indian Mujahideen are responsible for Tuesday's blast in Varanasi that claimed a small girl's life, Mumbai Police Commissioner Sanjeev Dayal said Wednesday, adding that they were operating from Pakistan.
"The evidence gathered by the police in connection with the terror attack in Varanasi points to the involvement of Indian Mujahideen's Riyaz and Iqbal Bhatkal. The modus operandi points towards them," Dayal said.
"They are both operating from Pakistan," he added.
Dayal also said that till such time the Bhatkal brothers are not arrested, Mumbai will remain on high alert.
"A meeting of Maharashtra's director general of police, the police commissioners of Mumbai and Navi Mumbai and others had been called, where the decision was taken," he said.
The Bhatkal brothers' had also emerged as prime suspects in the February 2010 German bakery blast in Pune.
Banned terrorist outfit Indian Mujahideen, allegedly founded by the Bhatkal brothers, has claimed responsibility for the Varansi attack.
An e-mail sent to media houses soon after the blast said: "Indian Mujahideen attribute(s) this attack to the 6th of December that will haunt your nation of world's 'greatest demoNcracy' until Muslims are paid back justly and fairly for the loss of their beloved Babri Masjid, the precious lives of their near and dear ones, their pride, dignity and self-respect."
A two-year-old girl child was killed and over 30 people, including a few foreigners, were injured when a bomb exploded on the banks of the Ganga during Tuesday evening's 'maha aarti'.
Dayal earlier said that the e-mails claiming responsibility for the Varanasi blast were tracked to Navi Mumbai.
"The e-mails have been sent after hacking an unsecured WiFi connection in Vashi township in Navi Mumbai, not from Mumbai's (western suburb) Malad," Dayal said.
Mumbai police had earlier detained two people - Akhil and Nikhil Talreja - for questioning but said they had been released. However, in an SMS sent to IANS, Akhil said he was still being questioned Wednesday evening.
Maharashtra Home Minister R.R. Patil urged WiFi users "to secure their connections so that terrorist outfits cannot break into them".

But we were asked what the GoI should do. Obviously security will have to be improved, social disturbances prevented etc. But I made a point which addresses root causes. If the powers that be cannot take proper steps, it is symptomatic of a deeper malaise.
Sources in the Forensic Team from Agra at work on the blast site, confided to the HT that around 3.5 kg Amonium Nitrate could have been used in the explosive, which killed a little girl and injured around 40 others.
It’s still not clear whether IED was used to trigger the explosive or not as no circumstantial evidence from the blast site could be found till now to corroborate the use of IED.
Also, small pieces of aluminum have been recovered from the blast site, making it clear that Aluminum was used in tandem with Amonium Nitrate in the low-medium intensity explosive.
A team of Mumbai Police also arrived along with Union Home Minister P Chidambaram in Varanasi to streamline investigations.
Sources in the team confided that the mail purportedly sent to certain media houses by Indian Mujahideen operatives was sent from a Navi Mumbai area using a WI-FI connection.
“It’s the second time the WI-FI connection has been hacked in Mumbai to send hate mail by the IM operatives. First time it was hacked by the IM after the German Bakery attack in Pune in Febaruary 2010,” one of the Mumbai Police officials said.
Intelligence sleuths are also working on possibility of IM mastermind sitting in Pakistan to trigger the Tuesday evening blast in the Ganga Arti.
Work is underway to trace the route of IM from East UP to Nepal and also the sleeper modules of IM and SIMI working in disguised names particularly in East UP districts

If they do, India might make good on the Army's plans of brigade level raids on terrorist camps in POK - which will lead to an exponential escalation given the current posture of pak's forces in the FATA. Therefore, they're resorting to these small (no less tragic) attacks. We need to pull the trigger on the economic gun and choking their markets. We're pulling all the right moves in Afghanistan and Balochistan, we need to keep up the pressure.
