Must not expect that anti-Hindu terrorists in India will be Muslims

They could be Presbyterians, I guess.  And that attack on the Taj Mahal hotel in Bombay did not happen, of course.  I've stayed at the Taj so the attack was shocking news to me

Outrage has been sparked in India after men playing the roles of terrorists in security drills were dressed as Muslims.

A video of a drill, which was broadcast on Indian media websites, shows five policemen capturing and then pinning down three men in white knitted skullcaps before bundling them into jeeps in the Surat district of Gujarat.

The drills are being carried out across Gujarat following intelligence reports that two high-profile events - Pravasi Bharatiya Divas and the Vibrant Gujarat Investors Summit - could be a the target of terror attacks.

Speakers at the summit in January will include U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry as well as Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

'Mock drills were carried out in 10 to 15 locations,' Deputy Superintendent of Police, Pradeep Sejul told television network NDTV.

'This should not have happened; it was an avoidable mistake. 'We assure you that if someone deliberately made the mistake, we will take action against them.'

Kamal Faruqui of the All India Muslim Personal Law Board called the mock drill 'atrocious and highly condemnable'.

'It is profiling the Muslim community which is very bad. They should apologise, otherwise they should be taken to the court,' Faruqui told NDTV.

Reminds me of when the Royal Australian Navy was chastised for doing a similar training drill at sea prior to the first Gulf War. What is wrong with depicting the expected enemy? What a load of PC BS. Who where the terrorists that invaded Mumbai? Muslims. So why pretend otherwise?

Attacking the accusers is standard Liberal tactics.

"It is profiling the Muslim community which is very bad."

It seems the Muslim community did that to themselves, by not eliminating their own radicals.
