Seeking input from my Indian friends. Is this likely perpetrated by Hindus or rather Muslims attacking their own to generate a backlash?
MALEGAON, India -- Two bombs rigged to bicycles exploded in throngs of Muslims as they left Friday prayers at a mosque in this western Indian city, killing 31 people and wounding 100.
A top official called the blasts "a terrorist act," and authorities _ fearing revenge attacks across the country's fragile religious divides _ clamped a curfew on Malegaon and put security forces on alert.
Late Friday, the city's streets were empty, with thousands of police on patrol and checkpoints set up around the perimeter.
Malegaon, a center of India's textile industry about 180 miles northeast of Mumbai, has long been the scene of violence between Hindus and Muslims.
