Three blasts between 6.54 p.m. and 7.05 p.m. rocked the crowded areas of Mumbai on Wednesday, killing 20 persons and injuring over a hundred, according to official sources. The most powerful one, suspected to have been set off by an IED (improvised explosive device) was at Zaveri Bazaar in south Mumbai, a congested part of the city, the second at Kabutarkhana near Dadar suburban railway station in central Mumbai and the third at Opera House also in South Mumbai.
Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan confirmed that it was a terror strike and appealed to Mumbaikars to keep calm. Mr. Chavan said the first blast was at 6.54 p.m. at Zaveri Bazaar, followed by Dadar at 6.55 p.m. and Opera House at 7.05 p.m.
Mr. Chavan said the police would get to the bottom of this. He had spoken to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Union Home Minister P. Chidambaram and both had assured the State of all help.
The blast near the bus stop at Kabutarkhana went off between 6.45 p.m. and 6.55 p.m., according to eyewitness accounts, shattering a car that was passing by and injuring the driver. A damaged bus stop and broken glass of the nearby shops bore testimony to the intensity of the bomb which was placed near the Hanuman Mandir, according to Additional Chief Secretary (Home) Umeshkumar Sarangi.
Mr. Sarangi said the bomb at Zaveri Bazaar was placed in an umbrella while the one at Opera House was in a manhole. While the Mumbai police commissioner Arup Patnaik confirmed that it was an IED that was used at Zaveri Bazaar, investigations are still on to confirm the kind of explosive used at the other two places.  MORE HERE

Indian Mujahedin (islamic terrorist group) are believed to be responsible for today's horror.

Bare Naked Islam is covering this story as well, BNI has been updating the post as the situation further develops, be sure to check there often for new information, pictures & video.


UPDATES II:

Mumbai hospitals are struggling to cope with the blast victims - The Times of India
Hospitals are having a hard time keeping up with the flood of seriously injured people, and admitting offices are being overwhelmed with people seeking news of their loved ones.
People queued up at hospitals to verify whether their friends or relatives were among the injured, while some were seen donating blood and helping hospital authorities.
...
"All the injured have suffered severe burns and their body parts have been crushed," Pravin Shingare, Co-Director of St George Hospital, said.
Social Networks like Twitter and Facebook are playing a big role in getting information and assistance out. Via Times of India:
First there was news. Then outrage. And then help. As TV channels flashed information about the bomb blasts, the news spread fast across the web. With confusion on the ground in Mumbai and phone networks choked, people used Twitter and Facebook to contact their friends and relatives in Mumbai.

Once the initial shock was over, tech savvy-users came together on Twitter and Facebook to offer help to blast victims. While initially the communication was little haphazard, soon people shaped it into a coherent flow of information that could help blast victims. Apart from #MumbaiBlasts, by 8PM #here2help and #needhelp were trending on Twitter.

Using #here2help tag hundreds of Twitter users in Mumbai stepped up to help stranded blast victims. While some offered shelter and food to stranded victims, a few others volunteered to drive stranded commuters to their homes. Some others volunteered to donate blood, if needed. READ THE REST

It`s barely imaginable the horror and anguish of terrorist attacks like these. I saw a pic of the derailed train on Sunday and wondered then if it was a terrorist attack. Apparently it was.

I have an idea for an experiment. Banish all muslims and everything islamic from India for at least 5 yrs and see how many terrorist attacks occur. Right up there next to impossible, I know, but it`s food for thought !

God forgive me, but I truly hate koranimals.
Sigh.  I'm working on it.

The screams of "islamophobe!" would be deafening, although a phobia is an irrational fear and it is not irrational to be concerned about islam since so many are killed, oppressed, tortured and enslaved for it every single day on this earth. 

Zilla of the Resistance said...

It's hard not to have strong uncharitable feelings for those who cause so much horror, pain and destruction. 

SignPainterGuy said...

The screams of "islamaphobe" are just bullying tactics and sometimes you just have to call a bully`s bluff ! I`m up for a little bluff-calling !

Dear God.....

Of course, here in America, the MSM dare not mention "who" is responsible for these attacks.  No doubt they blame the pesky Episcopalians......

Teresa Koch said...

Throughout history, fundamentalist Muslims have risen up and terrorized whoever they could.  Eventually the populace gets fed up, goes in, and takes care of business.  It's getting to that point again.....

The freaking troll worked my last nerve. I have no patience for such lunacy, she kept coming back ranting in mega long idiocy! I removed the post because I can't ban trolls there.  I didn't want to let her have free reign to insult me, you, and everybody else.

islam STILL practices slavery. America is the only country where people were willing to fight and die to end it. Although the DEMOCRATS fought to keep it, in addition to resisting every single effort by REPUBLICANS to grant equal rights to black people and the KKK is, and always has been, the terrorist arm of the DNC.

My WHITE ancestors were slaves! My mom's people were taken from Ireland and Scotland to be slaves in the Caribbean long before Europeans thought to inflict such evil on blacks. So no race hustling grievance monger has any claim for reparations from me, not that they have cause to demand it from anyone since nobody alive today held a slave in the United States legally.

BTW, the snails arrived today! Thank you so much for all the cool birfday presents!

Zilla of the Resistance said...

Except their stupid liberal enablers insist that anyone who dares resist submission to islamotyranny is some sort of bigot, like you need to volunteer to be wiped out by genocide to prove what a nice person you are.

Zilla of the Resistance said...

It would be 'islamophobic' to admit that people are slaughtering innocent folks for islam, and if you say that muslims are violent, they'll kill you to prove you wrong! 

Revnant dream said...

They strike India because thats where the West is growing. As usual the Islamists want to stop growth or prosperity for others, while forcing their vile ideology on everyone else.
Thanks for the good posts.

SignPainterGuy said...

But, but, haven`t you heard ? Islam is the Religion of PEACE, LOVE, TOLERANCE and ENLIGHTENMENT ! My "north end of a southbound donkey" !

SignPainterGuy said...

I liked that Ianswife requested that "the freaking troll" be banned ! You did the right thing. Next time, feed the troll to the alligators !

"...the KKK is .... the terrorist arm of the DNC." Add the New Black Panther Party and to a large degree, the Dept. of INjustice.
