I keep seeing this on ATS, why do people automatically jump to conclusions without any knowledge or evidence to back what they are saying, it is rife
on the terrorism forum.
Looking at this attack as the news story is still developing my guess would be that this attack has been conducted by Lashkar-e-Taiba, the same group
responsible for the 2008 Mumbai attacks. And yes they are backed the ISI, they were backed at the time of the Mumbai attacks by the ISI and India
didn’t really do much about it. The MO fits, attacking Mumbai and civilian targets in coordinated attacks. My initial assessment of this is that it
is the work of Lashkar-e-Taiba, could be any number of Kashmir groups such as Harkat-ul-mujahedeen. Will be interesting to follow events and see how
India respond if they uncover evidence of direct Pakistani involvement and so on.
I don’t understand why people are starting to write things about how this “must be a Pakistani backed terrorist attack” without actually
bothering to mention Lashkar-e-Taiba or other Kashmir Pakistani backed terrorist groups. It seems to me that the default, or as I now like to call
them “conspiracy norms” is to blame Pakistan for any terrorist event in India, although this may be true, nobody seems to bother explaining what
group why or bother attempting to look for another possibility.
