More lunacy re the Mumbai jihad attacks — this time from the Muslim Victimology Department. Marika Vicziany is a Professor of South Asian Studies at Monash University in Victoria, Australia. She isn’t saying that the Hindus mounted the attacks, but that they’re revenge attacks for Hindu mistreatment of Muslims.
“Australian killed in Mumbai terror attacks,” from the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, November 27 (thanks to Michael):
PROFESSOR MARIKA VICZIANY: Al-Qaeda could, of course, be involved. I think we should think of a number of possible scenarios.
But the Hindu Muslim situation in Bombay and Western India is so bad that you don’t need Al-Qaeda to stir trouble.
The feeling is that these bombings are about revenge and retribution. Muslims in Western India feel that they have been under attack, and they attack is coming from Hindu fundamentalists and Hindu extremists.
