A software programmer. No doubt another one of those desperately poor people we keep hearing so much about — the ones who turn to jihad out of a sense of desperation. (Actually, study after study has shown that jihadists are generally more affluent than others in the societies from which they come.) “Brothers arrested over Bombay train blasts,” from the Times Online, with thanks to JE:
Two brothers who have been linked to a Muslim militant group have been arrested by Indian police in connection with the Bombay train bombings which killed 183 people earlier this month.
Faizal Sheikh and Muzammil Sheikh were arrested yesterday by anti-terrorist investigators after being questioned on suspicion of being members of the Lashkar-e-Taiba group.
According to The Times of India, Faizal Sheikh is suspected of being the western India commander for Lashkar-e-Taiba, a banned militant group which is fighting against Indian control of part of disputed Kashmir.
He and his brother, a software programmer, will appear in court later today accused of conspiracy in connection with the blasts. Lashkar-e-Taiba has denied any role in the attacks.
