Followin the Terror Attack at Bangalore last Evening.Now the Space Centers are on High Alert,as is Chennai & Mumbai.
Something should be done.Suprisingly no World reaction.I guess they are all tired of the Frequency.
I read through the original report. Looks as it may have been a terror attack, or a "normal" crime-action, or somebody going amok . Was the death of the old scientist just coincidence or the "real" thing ? The answers to such questions will determine whether the matter is of any relevance in the world or whether it just was a "local crime" .
Unfortunately if something happens in India, it generally goes unnoticed. One thing people ignored is the fact that none of the granades exploded. Had it happened otherwise, the loss would have been unmeasureable. We should see this incident in light of possible damage it could have caused.
BTW! That prof was just unlucky, attackers didn't have any particular target in mind.

From an article I read here in the USA, part of this may be directed upon India by (the tiny number of) Muslums over the Kashmier region as part of that ongoing war/dispute and a second part is vs. USA symbolic interests and investments in that region of India, as far easier to reach and 'soft targets' by the local 'Islamic' terrorists. It is a sorry situation for all, and each of us (India and the USA) has it's own problems with the Islamic world. Meanwhile innocent 3rd parties may die or be economically damaged.
