Bombing killed Muslims, Police Fired on Muslims and India government suspects Muslims

Big joke in India.

The bomb, hidden under a bench in the mosque's courtyard, exploded during prayers Friday, killing 11 people.

During clashes that erupted between security officials and Muslim protesters after the blast, police opened fire on stone-throwing crowds, killing five.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. Indian media reported that intelligence agencies were looking at a possible link to Islamic militant groups based in predominantly Muslim neighbouring Pakistan, India's longtime rival.

None of the reports offered any reasons why investigators would suspect Muslim groups in an attack on a mosque, but the militants are routinely blamed even when Muslims are targeted.

Such accusations stoke resentment among Muslims, who account for about 130 million of India's 1.1 billion people, about 80 per cent of whom are Hindu.
