Abstract

The exposure of a Hindutva terrorist network behind the bombings in Malegaon and elsewhere should put paid to the widely prevalent assumption – shared by the police in numerous states and by the national security establishment – that terrorism in India is an enterprise run mainly, if not exclusively, by Islamic extremists. The rise of Hindutva terrorism cannot be seen in isolation from the climate of divisiveness and the culture of hate that the Bharatiya Janata Party has consciously promoted in its cynical pursuit of power.
