With the emerging details, it seems that the state govt. and police is to blame. Whatever be the reason, it is the common man's life which has been lost. I wonder when will We the People wake up and create a mass movement and get rid of all these self-centered and dirty politicians. May the souls of those lost Rest in Peace.

I am sorry for being harsh. Blaming police and govt for everything is not a solution. Everytime after any unwanted incident we keep hearing security lapse, center's warning being ignored etc. You got to understand that we are dealing with cities with 6 million+ people. The common men like you and me need to stand up and point out the culprits.

And who were those people throwing stoned at vehicles and police immediately after the incidents? How on earth are they helping the situation?

Thats because of stupid mass hysteria.

Initial hints on TV suggested Jaish-E-Mohammed or some thing like that. Blasts happened in two places laser show grounds at Lumbini Park and Gokul Chat a very popular chat joint at Kothi. TV footage was gruesome.

The best solution is for every one to be alert and report any thing suspicious. Police alone can not simply can not guarantee every body´s safety. Given the population its close to impossible to monitor all public places, shopping malls, .. Also we want our freedom right, park any where and every where, do not have discipline in queues, how in the world can our police protect us. If there is a rule we always try to violate it, is that how we help law enforcement ?

May the souls of victims rest in peace.

Oh dear, I saw this on the headlines today morning. Hope everyones fine and so are you near & dear ones.

This is so SAD, targetting innocent people. Hope we do not see any of these kind of attacks now on. Security should start pulling up their socks.

Imagine, there was a Team-BHP meet somewhere around Lumbini Park on Aug 15th !! If I remember right, BlackPearl from Calcutta also participated (I could not). Even his hotel was a stone's throw away from the park.
Keep safe, guys! Avoid crowded places till Ganesh Puja is over.
Let us pray we are not subjected to more incidents like this.

I hope they get to the bottom of this. i.e. catch the masterminds behind this cowardly act. Last thing we need is an Al-Qaida style terrorism to mushroom in India.

This is one of the most horrible incidents in recent time. It could also possibly be the biggest in the last decade as headcounts keep increasing it will be confirmed.

I used to be a frequent visitor to Gokul chat until a few years ago and it is always jam packed with people enjoying those hot snacks. Feel sad for them, a quick stop there ended their lives.

I stay away from crowded places during weekends as thats exactly what these &^%$*# target. Hyderabad folks, be very careful during the upcoming ganesh festival, if i am not wrong it is the secong biggest ( in terms of crowd gathering) in whole country. May god bless all those people's soul and RIP.

I was shocked to hear about the blasts esp at gokul chat. The place is visited by young college goin crowd and the place is well known for its chaat. Definately its the state/central government whoz should be held responsible for the security/intelleligence lapse. What is the point of spending crores n crores of bucks on defence when you cant find out about a single blast. This never happened in Naidu's tenure??

Its quite easy to say that. Did you ever wonder there could be a political angle to this story? Naidu wanting to come back to power. Do you recall the latest cockfight between Naidu and Reddy in the assembly?

Can somebody from Hyderabad please comment on the contents of this rediff story?
Bin Laden's shadow in Hyderabad

Quote:
influence of the Lashkar-e-Tayiba and the Harkat-ul-Jihad-al-Islami was so pervasive in the local Muslim community that many members of the community kept in their houses pictures of Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf
The tentacles of evil is pervasive - even in Kerala, several months back, a bus was hijacked and burnt, but the passengers were spared. Going by the eye witness accounts, the hijackers were extremely well trained to deal with hostages and keep them calm and quiet. The culprits were not nabbed, as usual, and the police claims it has has no clue about what happened. What is worrying is that the people are trained enough to hijack air planes and eye wtness accounts have not set off alarm bells among police circles.
The hijackers were demanding release of their leader, and yes, he was released, to a rousing welcome from both the ruling and opposition in Kerala.

One really doesnt know what to feel at a time like this

Sad? Frustrated? Angry? Hopeless?

RIP to all those who lost their lives.

It's sad that political parties are trying to get extra weight out of these blasts. BJP called for a state bandh today. Even TDP (Naidu's party) may call for another bandh soon. They don't want people to get back to normal. I remember people in Mumbai were happy that the life got back to normal very quickly after the recent train blasts.

After the blasts i expected police to tape the blast sites and restrict people from entering the spots. That could spoil whatever little evidence is available. But the politicians, media, crowd everybody were freely walking all over the place.

May the poor souls who lost their life rest in peace.

Sad as it is, there is an article in Todays TOI which puts India the second most terrorism targeted country after Iraq!!!
The article says We are ahead of Afghan, Pak and other countries!!! God Save Us.
