Nice Observation. Totally agree.
Let me tell you something about Islam. It might help in understanding why I think Indian Muslims should not be blamed for blasts.
There are several flavours of Islam - Wahabbism is one, it belongs to Sauri Arabia. It is a degraded and fanatic version. Muslims in pakistan relates themselves to this version. They associate themselves to this version.
Another version is one which rules sub-continent. This version lacks fanatic flavour of wahabbism. Now today, a lot of people in India think partition was good because it seperated this wahhabic section of Muslims in sub-continent. Most of these wahabbists joined Pakistan. One interesting this is, those who were not in favour of such fanaticism were also forced into it after Pakistan endorsed Saudi Arabia's version of Islam and Saudi Arabia became a Patron(Inspiration) for version of Islam practiced in pakistan.
Today, terrorism is rising in India because pakistan is exporting its "fanatic" version of Islam into Indian muslims. And sad thing is, political parties realise thing but are doing nothing for education of Indian Muslims so they don't fall for this propoganda being done by ISI and its support lobbies in India.
We are busy blaming Indian Muslims for blasts. Our focus should be devising strategies and psy-op campaigns taking Indian Muslim leaders along, to fight this campaign of ISI into Indian Islamic community.
Remember, if we keep blaming Indian Muslims and do nothing about real problems then it will only help ISI and their wahabbism-exporters(Saudi Arabia).
They are spreading this philosophy very fast. Its clear from blasts occuring around all states of India now.
Blaming Indian Muslims after blasts shows our ignorance of real problem. We must take action now to counter this disease and spread a correct version of Islam among Indian muslims before they fall for ISI/Saudi arabia propaganda version of Islam.
Congress party understands this problem in some sense but they are not "willing" and "creative" enough to convince Indian muslim leaders that we need to counter this foreign propaganda which aims to use our muslim community against ourselves. MMS recently proposed revision of muslim education board to induce better science education but that didn't go much further because he couldn't convince stubborn community leaders.
On other side, BJP understands this problem too. In fact, they knew this much before congress and tried to take steps on better review of madarrassa books and education in India. But, due to their "media-image" Indian muslim community leaders totally rejected their proposal due to their paranoia with BJP.
Problem is not Indian Muslims. Problem is lack of "creativity" and "urgency" among Indian politicians to convince Muslim community leaders in India that we must enforce better education policies among Indian Muslims to stop them from going into wrong direction and falling for ISI/Saudi Arabia version of fanatic Islam. The "stubbornness" and "paranoia" among community leaders is only complicating the situation.
We must act now.
Stop the blame game. Lets focus on real issues. This blame game only shows that we are not matured enough to understand real problems and focus on them.
