It was pure nuisance on twitter, there were no facts at all. It looked like a game where they were competing against each other to spread rumors. Twitter and Flickr will never replace my news because i overestimate the collective stupidity of the masses.
This is a useful insight with respect to your comments (
I was following #mumbai on twitter for a while and I have to say, It was more noise than signal ) So it shows the communications bit is there just the switched on person on the ground is not. Consider how real news organisations achieve this. My source of local news happened to have an ex-journalist in India to do a phone interview ~ http://mpegmedia.abc.net.au/news/audio/news-audio/200811/200...
So Twitter is good for a short bit of info but is pretty useless to get across important information.
So when the bodies of teh dead terrorists are identified and/or the captured terrorists are interrogated, then what?
The wikipedia article you link to talks about a completely different type of attack - people leaving remote controlled bombs in crowded places and detonating them later. In such a scenario it is possible to pretend to be someone else.
Yes there are Hindu terrorists, though nothing like the worldwide jihadi networks. They have no motive to target Americans/ Britons.
This is a really dumb speculation along the lines of claiming the perpetrators of 9/11 were actually Jewish fanatics/ the Mossad.
India currently is just a broken system - everybody having their bit of contribution to this whole mess including "aam aadmi" - common man who just sat quiet. Its just waste of time to get into blame game of pointing to political parties, religions, communities or anything.
India just has to get into a mass movement and fix itself. Or for the time being at least may be army should take over hoping it can't be worse.
I know what's wrong with this line of thinking.
Look at the history; and see if there is anything that can be learnt from nations that went in that route.
Hence India should 'decentralize' 604 districts into States or Cantons as in Switzerland.
However the small chunks of the country cannot self sustain. Its a complex problem where there is a strong necessity to be united at the same time ensure a govt which can handle the diversity.
